Polymer Industries integrates the antimicrobial protection into the product during the manufacturing process. Our antimicrobial material kills or inhibits the growth of microorganisms caused by bacteria, algae and fungi. Our products are also non-porous and kill the spread of bacteria resistant to moisture and mildew.
The need to combat infectious diseases continues to increase in all commercial applications. Healthcare facilities and public venues are ideal locations for antimicrobial surfaces. In addition, antimicrobial surfaces are needed in food preparation areas, with food processing equipment and on industrial cutting surfaces. These products limit bacteria growth improving the hygiene of surfaces.
Antibacterial products are created by incorporating an antibacterial agent (biocide) to suppress the growth of bacteria on the surfaces of products through a process called zone inhibition to control growth of bacteria, fungus and algae.
