Gopinath Krishnan l Managing Director
“At Armacell, we’re always looking for a differentiator, something that separates our products from others, and our non-fibrous foam material treated with Microban does just that. Our product line is tailored to provide an energy-saving strategy in environments that are typically used by vulnerable people, such as the medical or educational world, from the moment of installation right through the lifetime of the product. Our closed cell elastomeric or polyethylene materials don’t rely on any other elements to satisfy the needs of the system, so installation is straightforward, brings very little dust or debris, and has a good energy rating. The antimicrobial technology from Microban really drives home this differentiation by preventing the growth of mold or mildew for the lifetime of the material, and the more we can eliminate or deter microbes from living on our products, the better.”
