Americhem has announced that the company has widened its antimicrobial functional additive offerings to provide protection for more applications in more markets than ever before. Americhem is a recognised designer and manufacturer of custom colour masterbatch, functional additives, engineered compounds, and performance technologies, based in US.

While the company has long been recognised as a supplier of antimicrobial additives in applications such as textiles and carpets, acquisitions and ongoing R&D efforts have allowed Americhem to become a full-service provider of antimicrobial additives for manufacturers using resins such as Nylon, PE, PP, TPE, TPO, PVC, and other polymers.

Americhem now provides antimicrobial solutions to the fibre, nonwoven, moulded, or extruded profiles markets throughout the world, including additives that remain stable during processing across a wide range of temperatures. Depending on the application, Americhem offers a variety of different antimicrobial technologies through its nShield family of products to suit various polymer chemistries, surface characteristics, and processing requirements.

Vaman Kulkarni, director, technology and business development, extrusions for Americhem said, “We are taking our expertise in perfecting antimicrobial additives for applications like odour-resistant garments and are applying that knowledge to help promote public hygiene and general cleanliness. We now offer antimicrobial additives for everything from consumer goods that are frequently touched, like baby changing stations, to applications that require strong antifungal protection, like fuel tanks. We have the tools to deliver solutions at the right performance point for each customer.” (GK)
