Antimicrobial finishing of plastics
Antimicrobial agents are used in numerous plastic applications. We regularly encounter corresponding products in our everyday lives, such as in applications for sanitary ware, kitchens, textiles, floor coverings and mattresses. These active ingredients inhibit or prevent the spread of mold, bacteria or algae. For this reason, antimicrobial-treated plastics perform not only to a higher standard of hygiene, but also to health-related requirements.
