Microban designs highly effective antimicrobial technologies for a variety of polymer and fabric surfaces used in healthcare facilities—from medical tools to drapes.
Throughout every treated product’s expected lifetime, uncontrolled microbial growth is inhibited, maximizing product cleanliness, safety and freshness. That means products like healthcare drapes stay cleaner and fresher for longer.
From antimicrobial design to masterbatch production, our team encourages client collaboration throughout. Keeping communication channels open helps our engineers design optimal antimicrobial drape protection technologies for your company. After numerous compounds are tested for antimicrobial performance, product compatibility and durability, we pinpoint the best additive for your product's precise needs. And as product development ends and masterbatch production begins, Microban continues to help partners with marketing support, patent and regulatory counseling.
Expertise in A Highly Regulated Field.
Disinfectant and health claims and applications require finished products to be registered with the EPA under FIFRA. And they may also require clearance as medical devices by the FDA before they can be placed on the market. It’s important to note that treated article applications cannot claim antimicrobial protection beyond protection of the product itself from antimicrobial stains, odors and/or deterioration. They are not designed to protect users against illness or as a substitute for normal cleaning or hygiene practices. Microban has the resources and industry experience you need to simplify those complexities and to realize custom-engineered solutions for drapes and many other products designed for the healthcare sector.
Microban technologies are not designed to protect users against illness, and Microban makes no claims as such. Normal cleaning and hygiene practices should always be maintained.
