Creating smarter plastic products for a better tomorrow

Built-in antimicrobial technology actively prevents microbial growth on plastic products, even in ideal temperature and humidity conditions. The result is a cleaner, fresher product that lasts longer, discourages waste, and encourages reuse.

Treatable polymer materials include Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS), Polypropylene (PP), Polystyrene (PS), Polyethylene (PE/LDPE), Polyvinyl chloride (PVC), and Polycarbonate (PC).

Common applications

Mbns20 Antimicrobial Solutions For Automotive Featured

Automotive and transportation

Regular cleaning is the key to maintaining cleaner interiors in cars, buses, trains, and planes. However, in many cases, cleaning isn’t always viable or realistic due to high traffic or the location of the surface. This can lead to damaging microbial growth, resulting in foul odors, diminished product performance and even cross-contamination onto other surfaces. Microban technology provides proactive protection against harmful bacteria, mold and mildew growth to deliver added peace of mind to passengers during every journey.

Building and construction

From performance and longevity, to ease of installation and upkeep, the criteria for building materials are vast. However, one key commonality is their exposure to moisture, humidity and natural food sources, all of which can cause microbial growth that can affect the aesthetics and durability of the product over time. Microban technology can be integrated into polymeric building materials such as PVC windows and pipes to help deliver permanent surface protection and enhance the lifetime of the product.

Packaging

Frequent handling, transportation conditions, and exposure to humidity and temperature changes can all lead to microbial contamination in plastic packaging. This not only causes premature material degradation but also encourages the development of stains and odors. With many brands shifting to sustainable packaging and adopting reuse/refill models, antimicrobial technologies can work to extend the aesthetics and shelf-life of packaging - making your sustainability goals more achievable.

Medical

Healthcare environments, whether large or small, provide ample opportunities for harmful microbes to grow and spread. High-touch surfaces such as bed rails, food-trays, patient chairs and call bells, for example, can all benefit from built-in antimicrobial protection to help maintain a safe, healthy medical facility and reduce the risk of cross-contamination.

Consumer products

Our hands are rarely far away from a gadget or product of some sort. From kitchen tools and home appliances to pet products and children's toys, consumer products are high-touch objects - which makes them breeding grounds for bacterial growth. With heightened consumer awareness of product cleanliness and sustainability, Microban can help plastic manufacturers create products that are protected against microbial growth for their expected lifetime.

Consumer electronics

Microbes are no strangers to consumer electronics. Whether it is smartphones, laptops, or wearable technology, these devices have become an essential part of our daily lives and belongings, and rarely do they get cleaned. Microban solutions can be incorporated into a variety of surfaces and components of many electronic devices to proactively protect the product and surface from bacteria.
