Microban International expanded its portfolio of antimicrobial technologies with the introduction of MicroGuard™, a series of antifungal additives for PVC, PU, and EVA applications, including foam. MicroGuard technology provides high antifungal efficacy and around-the-clock built-in protection, preventing microbial degradation to extend the useful product lifetime.
MicroGuard has been developed as a non-leaching antifungal agent comprised of active ingredients free from metals, offering an alternative to arsenic-based OBPA – a common antifungal additive – causing regulatory concerns due to its ability to contaminate water sources and harm aquatic life. The technology can be incorporated into outdoor PVC products, including roofing membranes, tarpaulin, awnings and decking.
