Microban and Q.E.P. expand partnership to unveil ROBERTS® Adhesives with Microban’s exclusive antimicrobial technology for North America
Microban International, the leader in antimicrobial solutions, is excited to expand its 15-year partnership with QEP to include Roberts Consolidated Industries., a leading global brand of flooring adhesives, installation tools and underlayment. This development will extend the use of Microban® antimicrobial technologies to include ROBERTS’ powerful range of adhesives for cleaner floor installations, which will be unveiled at The 2024 International Surface Event, on Jan 23-26 in Las Vegas.
All ROBERTS-manufactured adhesives in North America will be enhanced with Microban antimicrobial technology, providing around-the-clock product protection from the growth of stain- and odor-causing microbes – including bacteria, molds and mildews. This built-in antimicrobial technology will remain present and active for the expected lifetime of a product, working at a cellular level to continually disrupt the growth and reproduction of surface-contaminating microorganisms.
Michael Duchaine, Executive Vice President of Strategic Planning & Development at QEP, commented: “Every place we go – including our homes, offices, restaurants, and shops – has flooring that is secured by adhesives, making delivering effective and ongoing protection against microorganisms essential. ROBERTS is proud to be the first and only manufacturer to include Microban product protection exclusively in flooring adhesives sold in North America.”
Steve Lutes, Director of Business Development at Microban International, agreed: “The Microban team has worked hard to innovate and establish a portfolio of over 25 approved antimicrobial technologies, and partnering with great manufacturers like QEP/ROBERTS allows us to extend the benefits of built-in surface protection to a broader range of consumer and professional products.”
