Unpleasant odors in different consumer and commercial textile products are the result of micro-organisms that feed on moisture, heat and humidity. However, with odor capture and antimicrobial protection, these textile and foam applications stay fresher for longer.
Microban odor control solutions can be used across a wide array of substrates to either prevent odor or neutralize existing odor on the product.
From odor resistant clothing and footwear to mold and mildew inhibiting shower curtains, built-in Microban antimicrobial and odor capture finishes can easily be incorporated during the manufacturing process of textiles or foam to increase product value and save water, time and money. Our odor control products can be used in the following odor control applications :
Socks, soles and other shoe parts that come in direct contact with feet are notorious for generating extremely unpleasant odors caused by bacterial and athletic foot fungus contamination. Fortunately, Microban has developed odor resistant clothing as an answer to the all-too-common problem.
Shower curtains, bedding and other home textiles are frequently treated with water-repellent and stain-resistant agents. Unfortunately, odor control applications performance is often compromised when co-applied with those finishing agents. Fortunately, though, Microban has designed antimicrobial and odor capture fabric formulations and processes that successfully treat home textiles without causing a negative interference with other finishing agents.
Frequent use combined with infrequent cleaning can cause lab coats to harbor stain- and odor-causing bacteria. Microban offers antimicrobial treatments for fabrics and other medical textiles that prevent those bacteria from ever taking root. With our antimicrobial solutions, hospitals, doctor offices and urgent care centers enjoy maximized microbial protection.
