In an era where automotive excellence aligns seamlessly with innovation, Auto & Design magazine spotlights a pivotal industry shift with our latest feature, “Accelerating Surface Sustainability with Antimicrobial Technologies.”
The article, written by Kimberley Cherrington, Senior Manager of Global Brand and Marketing Comms at Microban International, dives into the strategic use of antimicrobial technologies poised to redefine the interior landscape for car manufacturers.
Steering clear of microbes
Car interiors are often neglected when it comes to maintenance and cleaning, which makes them a breeding ground for microbes. However, built-in antimicrobial technology can be integrated into various materials to provide 24/7 surface protection against bacteria, molds, and mildew. This innovative solution can be applied to door handles, steering wheels, and other surfaces to create an active defense against microbial attacks, setting a new standard for automotive cleanliness. By using these solutions, car manufacturers can say goodbye to premature replacements and adopt a more sustainable manufacturing approach.
