Home Isn’t Where the Bacteria Is.


Shower curtains, bedding and other home textiles are frequently treated with water-repellent and stain-resistant agents. 

Unfortunately, odor-control technology 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 negative interferences with other finishing agents.

Microban is about more than technology, though. We’re committed to providing partners with support throughout the entire product development process. After collaborating during the planning stage, our engineering team begins designing the ideal antimicrobial fabric technology for the partner’s specific product. By experimenting with various chemical compounds in our lab, our chemists then decipher which additives best resist microbial reproduction. At that point, we create masterbatches, as well as assist partners with regulatory approvals and patent counseling.
