Microban® Technology

How Does Antimicrobial Technology Work?

Microban® antimicrobial technology can be defined as a product additive that works to inhibit the growth and reproduction of bacteria, mold, and mildew on product surfaces.

Unlike disinfectants which provide a limited residual activity once the treated surface dries, integrated antimicrobial technology works to continuously minimize the presence of microbes throughout the entire lifecycle of a product.



Antimicrobial technology works at a cellular level to continually disrupt the growth and reproduction of microorganisms. It operates a multi-modal attack, damaging the protein, cell membrane, DNA and internal systems of a microbe. Once infused into a product, antimicrobial technology will start to work as soon as a microorganism comes into contact with the protected surface.
