Stop the Stink with Antimicrobial Additives and Advanced Odor Control Solutions
On any given surface, bacteria can double in number every 20 minutes, causing the development of stains and unpleasant odors that impact durability and product lifespan. In many circumstances, once bacteria have begun to proliferate on a surface and odors become noticeable, there is no way to effectively wash the odor away. The best weapon in the odor control fight is prevention.
Microban® technologies help control odors by inhibiting the growth of bacteria, mold and mildew in treated products. Our customized odor control chemistries are incorporated into products at the point of manufacture to provide ongoing protection against odors for the life of the product, and have been proven to eliminate up to 99.9% of odor-causing microbes. The result is products that remain cleaner and fresher for longer, and are ultimately more durable.
