1. Full Integration

The technology is integrated during the manufacturing process and becomes part of the molecular structure of the product. It will not wash off or wear away.

2. Contamination

The treated surface becomes contaminated with bacteria as a result contact.

3. Technology at Work

The technology penetrates the bacteria and inhibits their ability to reproduce, make food, or eliminate waste.

4. A Cleaner Surface

Ultimately, the treated surface remains cleaner and is protected against the proliferation of stain and odor causing bacteria.

  • Microban® technology inhibits the growth of bacteria, mold and mildew on artificial grass, keeping your front and back yard cleaner, fresher and odor reducing.
  • By inhibiting the growth of bacteria, mold and mildew, Microban® technology helps make cleaning even easier.
  • Microban® technology helps reduce odors caused by pet urine.
  • Microban® antimicrobial agents prevent stain-and-odor-causing microbes from growing or reproducing. On an unprotected surface, bacteria can double in numbers every 20 minutes.

How It's Built In

  • Microban® odor-control and antimicrobial agents are integrated into the blades of the turf during the manufacturing process.
  • This patented technology never washes off or wears away and stays active for the life of the product.
How do products with Microban® antimicrobial protection work?
Microban® protection inhibits the growth of microorganisms. When microbes come in contact with the product surface, Microban® protection penetrates the cell wall of the microorganism and disrupts cell functions making the microorganism unable to function, grow and reproduce.
What benefit do I get from products with Microban® antimicrobial protection?
Microban® protection continuously fights the growth of microbes such as odor and stain causing bacteria. Microban® protection makes products easier to clean and keeps them cleaner between cleanings.
What types of microorganisms does Microban protection work against?
Microban® antimicrobial protection is effective against most common bacteria that cause stains, odors and product degradation. Microban® technology is not designed to protect users from disease.
How do I know that Microban antimicrobial product protection is safe to use?
Microban® technology has undergone extensive independent laboratory testing and has a long history of safe use. It is registered with the EPA and other regulatory agencies in other countries for all applications in which it is used. Microban® additives can be found in leading consumer and industrial brands around the world.
Does this mean I don’t have to clean my products as much or as carefully?
No. Microban® protection provides continuous antimicrobial protection that protects the products, making them easier to clean and keeping them cleaner between cleanings. However, normal cleaning practices should be maintained.
Does Microban® protection begin working immediately?
Microban® protection begins to work as soon as the microorganism comes into contact with the product surface. It then works continuously to maintain a consistently lower bio-burden than would be expected on a product without Microban® antimicrobial protection. Under the right conditions, microbes on an untreated surface can double every 20 minutes! Microban® technology is not a disinfectant and is not a substitute for normal cleaning practices.
How long does Microban® antimicrobial protection work?
Microban® protection is built-in during the manufacturing process and will not wash off or wear away. Microban® protection is engineered to provide continuous antimicrobial product protection for the useful lifetime of the product.
