An urgent call for greater environmental responsibility is shaping the future of plastics. Manufacturers are now prioritizing product sustainability, longevity, and durability as they work to minimize their environmental impact.
One major obstacle leading to premature plastic disposal, and preventing reusability and recyclability, is the material’s susceptibility to microbial growth. This issue is common in everyday applications such as water tanks, piping, packaging and food storage equipment.
In an enlightening article for POLYMERS Communiqué, Microban explores the role of built-in antimicrobial technologies in creating cleaner, fresher and more sustainable plastic products. Microban also dives into Ascera™ and MicroGuard™, the latest sustainable chemistries for polymer materials.
