Antimicrobial technology is used in various applications, from textiles to medical catheters, to help keep products clean. The technology offers built-in protection and continuously enables products to resist the growth of microbes.
The Antimicrobial solutions we offer are considered “smart” technologies, which incorporate silver and copper elements in a zeolite carrier. When active, ions exchange with other positive ions (often sodium) from the moisture in the environment. This initiates a release of antimicrobial elements in an efficient manner.
Agion Antimicrobial uses a trimodal approach to fight microbe growth:
A product treated with Agion Antimicrobial technology released the active antimicrobial ingredient only when moisture is detected and conditions are ideal for bacteria growth. This functionality allows for efficient use of the technology, equating to long-lasting performance.
