Antimicrobial Cooler Treatments
Rubbermaid coolers featuring Microban technology are treated with a customized formulation of Microban ZPTech® - a zinc additive technology. ZPTech has been shown to be effective against a broad spectrum of bacteria, mold and mildew, both in the lab and in real-world applications. In order to show the true efficacy of the technology, the team at Microban developed an experiment to duplicate the usage of the cooler that mimics the common everyday use of the product in the real world.
