In today's marketplace, you can't make a business decision without considering sustainability and environmental impacts. Many consumers and businesses alike are seeking out ways to conserve energy, opting for solutions that last longer and can be reused instead of thrown away. A big cause of premature product disposal is microbial degradation, as products develop stains and odors that can be hard to remove once they take root.
Foams can be especially susceptible to microbial growth, particularly in end-use environments like cars, public seating, insulation and more. Microban Director of Business Development, Rich Kenney, shared his thoughts on this topic with Manufacturing Technology Insights, discussing the importance of a layer of built-in antimicrobial protection for foams among other materials.
