As foam products continue to play an important role in multiple industries, it is imperative that they maintain their quality and durability. However, foam is notorious for providing an environment where microbes flourish. With its complex structure, foam can easily collect debris from its surroundings and absorb moisture, while the ingredients used to make polyurethane foam can even become food sources for microbes, leading to premature degradation and unpleasant odors over time.

To help address these issues, Microban will be returning to Foam Expo North America 2023. We are excited to showcase next-generation antimicrobial technologies for foam to help brands deliver cleaner and more sustainable product lines.

Date: June 20-22, 2023
Suburban Collection Showplace, Novi, Michigan, USA

Foam applications that could benefit from antimicrobial technology

Microban protected foams for building material

Construction and building materials - Mold and mildew can cause premature degradation, discoloration and unpleasant odors in building insulation, roofing, flooring, and wall panels made from foam. Incorporating antimicrobial technology into foam materials can effectively preserve their freshness, performance, and lifespan, helping contribute to a more sustainable built environment.

Microban protected foams for automotive interiors

Automotive interiors - Foam is an essential component in automotive interior design, providing comfort and support in seats, headrests, and armrests. However, regular exposure to moisture, spills, and microbial passengers can cause foam to degrade and produce unpleasant odors, negatively impacting the overall aesthetic appeal of the vehicle. By adding antimicrobial product protection, automotive manufacturers can provide an extra layer of defense against these invisible nasties, creating vehicles that not only look great but also maintain their performance over time.

Microban protected foams for mattresses

Mattresses and bedding - With humans shedding up to 40,000 skin cells an hour, mattresses and bedding can easily become breeding grounds for bacteria. By incorporating antimicrobial technologies at the stage of manufacture, bedding and mattresses stay cleaner and fresher for longer, providing consumers with added peace of mind for a better night's sleep.
