Wakefield, MASS., May 9, 2012 – Sciessent, makers of Agion® brand antimicrobial technology partners with Sebald Iso-Systeme, leading manufacturers of jacketing systems for the insulation industry headquartered in Sinzing, Germany, to launch the first line of insulation jackets to offer built in antimicrobial protection.
