Helping Textile Products Stay Cleaner
A global leader in antimicrobial and surface modification technologies, Microban International offers proactive antimicrobial protection systems that give products the power to withstand stains and odor-causing microbial growth, which often lead to product deterioration.
In damp and humid conditions, microorganisms like bacteria and mold can double every 20 minutes. This is why Microban antimicrobial treatment is an important element of the design and development of many textile products. When infused into the textiles during manufacturing, Microban antimicrobial solution disrupts uncontrolled growth of stain and odor causing microbes.
Food preparation items such as chopping boards, utensils, and kitchen textiles need regular cleaning. Microban antimicrobial treatment is not meant to be an alternative for proper cleaning practices, and does not protect the user against foodborne illnesses. By preventing the growth of bacteria that leads to stains, odors and product deterioration, Microban protection helps food prep and food processing equipment stay cleaner between regular cleanings. Food prep and food processing equipment with Microban protection is EPA approved for use in food zones and food service equipment.
