SHANGHAI, China – February 01, 2021 // Microban® has won a 2021 Ringier Technology Innovation in Plastics Award for contributions to the China plastics industry.
The Ringier Technology Innovation Awards for industrial manufacturing were inaugurated by Ringier Trade Media in 2006. Each year, the awards are granted to a select group of innovators in China's plastics industry to acknowledge products and ideas that are making a difference. Voting is open to the general public and entries for each category are shortlisted by the panel of expert judges.
Microban® SilverShield® technologies won in the Raw Materials & Additives category. SilverShield® represents a range of silver-based antibacterial solutions that can be incorporated into various polymeric materials. The unique technologies operate a multi-modal attack, eliminating bacterial growth on surfaces through protein and oxidative damage, cell disruption, and DNA interference. SilverShield® has also been proven to reduce viral loading on certain plastics by over 90%. SilverShield® is being utilised by multiple manufacturers across a variety of industries in China to create inherently cleaner, fresher, and more sustainable products. Typical applications include kitchen utensils, food storage containers, chopsticks, playing cards, and polymer sealants.
Microban® will receive its award at an official ceremony in Shanghai on March, 9. The event will bring together award winners, judges, industry professionals, and key China plastics media.
