Keep Products Cleaner and Stain-Free with Advanced Antimicrobial Additives

On any given surface, bacteria can double in number every 20 minutes, causing the development of stains that impact durability and product lifespan.  In many circumstances, once bacteria have begun to proliferate on a surface and stains become noticeable, it is very difficult to permanently remove the staining.  The best approach to keeping surfaces cleaner is stain prevention.

Microban® technologies help prevent stains by inhibiting the growth of bacteria, mold and mildew in treated products.  Our customized stain prevention chemistries are incorporated into products at the point of manufacture to provide ongoing protection against stains for the life of the product.  The result is products that remain cleaner for longer, are easier to clean, and are ultimately more durable.
