Microban and Everbrite partner to offer new antimicrobial coating that fights corrosion and bacteria
Microban International and Everbrite have joined forces to develop CrobialCoat™, an innovative coating that combines Microban antimicrobial technology and Everbrite ProtectaClear® to provide invisible surface protection with visible cleanliness. CrobialCoat is a durable, clear and highly adhesive coating designed to provide long-lasting product protection from rust, salt damage, tarnish, corrosion and oxidation on most surfaces, with the added benefit of built-in Microban antimicrobial technology.
Microban antimicrobial technology is specifically designed to inhibit microbial growth on highly polished or matte metals, ceramics, hard plastics and hardwoods. It works at a cellular level to continually disrupt the growth and reproduction of microorganisms that contaminate a treated surface, by damaging the proteins, cell membranes, DNA and internal systems of microbes. The infusion of Microban antimicrobial technology into CrobialCoat during manufacture provides an extra level of product protection against the growth of microbes that lasts for the life of the coating. This helps to decrease odors and reduce bacterial growth over the lifetime of the coating, saving time and money by helping to keep public areas cleaner for longer. The end product is ideal for high-touch environments where cleanliness is of particular importance in both home and commercial settings, such as schools, hospitals, dining and hospitality venues, and restrooms.
Eric Blaeser, Director of Business Development at Microban, said: “We are proud to partner with Everbrite to bring this novel protective coating to market. The inclusion of Microban ‘always on’ technology in CrobialCoat will help Everbrite to deliver antimicrobial product protection to a wide range of surfaces, even in extreme environmental conditions.”
Everbrite President Teresa Sedmak added: “Although the recent pandemic has highlighted the importance of keeping our vulnerable populations safe from unchecked viral spread, it’s become all too easy to forget about the host of average germs and microbes that still plague us. That’s why we’re so pleased to introduce CrobialCoat as a useful tool in this fight. Just one coating offers effective product protection against the growth of damaging bacteria. You just apply it, and know that the surface is protected, and that the protection will not wash off. It’s really that easy.”
