PORON XRD Materials with Microban to stay cleaner & fresher

Feb '10
PORON XRD Extreme Impact Protection Material now features Microban antimicrobial technology to provide consistent, reliable and long-lasting protection from the inside-out. PORON XRD Materials with Microban antimicrobial protection inhibit the growth of bacteria, mold and mildew that can cause product stains and odors.

Warm, moist environments found in places such as shoes, protective apparel and equipment provide favorable conditions for bacteria and developing odors. Hot, sweaty gear quickly becomes moldy, bacteria-filled, stinky gear. It happens to everyone, but it doesn't have to.

Found in a variety of applications from consumer household goods to commercial products, Microban is the global leader in built-in antimicrobial protection with over 150 manufacturing partners worldwide.

Infused into PORON XRD Materials from the beginning stages of manufacturing, Microban protection provides lasting antimicrobial protection for the lifetime of the product, keeping PORON XRD Materials cleaner and fresher for longer than ever before.

“On unprotected surfaces, bacteria can double in number every twenty minutes. New PORON XRD Materials with Microban antimicrobial protection will stay cleaner and fresher because Microban technology works around the clock to fight the growth of microbes that quickly multiply on shoes, protective apparel and equipment,“ says Kathy Hall, Vice President of Marketing, Microban International.

“As a leading ingredient brand for various athletic, outdoor and other consumer products, it was important to find an effective way to address concerns over the growth and spread of bacteria, mold and mildew,” states Dave Sherman, Rogers' New Business Development Manager. “The partnership with Microban International will help to ensure PORON Materials contain the best antimicrobial protection available.”

Many protective apparel and equipment brands have incorporated PORON XRD Protection in their 2010 and 2011 designs, and the inclusion of Microban technology will give these products an extra advantage over traditional protective gear and footwear.
