Antimicrobials protect all types of polymer products – from medical devices to swimming pools – from stains, odors and product deterioration caused by mold, mildew, bacteria and fungi.
MicroBlok® features broad-spectrum antimicrobial technologies available in two types to provide unrivaled protection when hygiene is critical:
MicroBlok® S uses silver ions dispersed uniformly throughout the polymer matrix, creating a long-lasting, microbe-resistant specific surface that remains stable at any temperature. MicroBlok® S can be used in any resin including PU, PC, ABS, PP and PE.
Our zinc-based protection disrupts microbial growth on treated surfaces, creating a reliable defense against microorganisms. MicroBlok Z is stable below 240 degrees C, which is ideal for resins that melt at low temperatures, including TPE, TPU and olefins. It is recommended for products used in high-humidity areas such as kitchens, bathrooms and outdoor areas.
MicroBlok can be added to compounds and precolors, concentrates and liquids, making it quicker to use and appropriate for nearly any molding or extrusion application. Our knowledgeable specialists at Plastics Color can assist you with the custom-blended formula that meets the specific needs of your products.
