What exactly is Microban Technology?

So, what is Microban Technology exactly?

Microban antimicrobial technology is a built-in ingredient that helps products resist the growth of bacteria, mold, mildew, and other microbes.

How can Microban Technology help you in your building?

Floors and soles of shoes are major sources of contamination in healthcare, retail, and educational facilities. In schools, students play on gym floors, quickly transferring microbes between their hands and the floor. According to the American Journal of Infection Control, contact with objects on floors frequently results in the transfer of pathogens to hands. Microban technology in Clarion 25 and Arena 300 can proactively fight microbes 24 hours a day at no additional cost.

How does it work?

Microban Antimicrobial Technology is built into Clarion 25 and Arena 300 during the manufacturing process. Once the floor finish or wood floor coating has been applied to floors, the built-in Microban technology can prevent microbes from growing and reproducing. When bacteria, mold, and mildew come in contact with floors, Microban will penetrate the cell wall of the microbe, disrupting the cell and preventing its ability to make food, grow, and reproduce. Summer is the perfect time to discuss floor implementing Clarion 25 floor finish in to your floor care program.
