Win with Microban - Hygiene in an Instant!
Poppy Watt discovers that hygiene can be made a little easier with the help of our technical friends Microban. Although invisible the technology they have devised is fighting away bacteria as we speak.
Microban International Ltd was founded by three biomedical engineers in 1994, and is now the global leader in the antibacterial sector. Today the Microban brand appears on products in more than 30 countries around the world. It offers a range of more than 20 different antibacterial technologies and holds more than 100 patents. The company has licensed its technologies to more than 200 partners worldwide including such brands as Whirlpool, Johnson & Johnson, Dupont and many other leading brands who have incorporated Microban antibacterial protection into more than 1,000 products.
On untreated products, bacteria can potentially double in number in 20 minutes but, with a wide range of antibacterial technologies to suit each specific application, Microban disrupts their functioning, usually causing 99% of bacteria to die within 24 hours.
By incorporating a broad range of antimicrobial technologies into a breadth of materials including: polymers, textiles, coatings, paper and adhesives during the manufacturing process, the technology cannot wash off or wear away, staying effective for product life. Microban brands will inhibit the growth of microbes, such as bacteria, mold and mildew that can cause stains, odors and deterioration of a product.
I tried a number of Microban products including the Neoflam oval chopping board containing Microban 3G Silver™ antibacterial product protection. This provides continuous antibacterial protection even in cutting grooves that develop on a cutting board with use.
The iSkin vibes is a flexible slim-fitting BodyGuard for your Blackberry Curve, also available for iphones and your ipad. Not only do you have an anti slip grip, the case is durable and of course contains Microban Protection so you do need to worry about germs and mould growing on your case, the built in antibacterial technology keeps your phone hygienic and stain free.
The Microban brand is your assurance of continuous, durable and effective antimicrobial protection that will provide an added level of defense against damaging microbes for the useful lifetime of the product.
