Odor Control Technologies for Textile Fibers, Fabrics and Foam

Our science is an art.

Microban® utilizes a technology-agnostic approach to product development for textile fibers, fabrics and foam products.

Microban custom-designed antimicrobial technology provides turnkey solutions for each unique product application.

We leverage a broad range of organic, inorganic and organometallic technology to provide the optimal solutions need to resist the growth of bacteria, mold and mildew that cause stains, odors and product deterioration in textile fibers, fabrics and foam.

By collaborating with our partners to understand each individual product application, we’re able to offer you the right solution for the right product, as opposed to trying to make a single odor control technology work for all of your applications. Properly evaluating desired benefits on a case-by-case basis is the key to providing you with cleaner, fresher textile fibers, fabrics and foam products.

Durability Requirements

Engineering performance finishes into products is one thing, but it’s not the only thing. It’s also important to ensure the antimicrobial compound’s effect lasts for the useful life of the product. Microban engineers work with partners to define durability requirements as part of the product development process and are able to employ standard methods or create customized methods to evaluate durability.

Our engineers will consult with you to determine the conditions of product use, such as water contact and/or immersion, food contact, skin contact and UV exposure. The usage and product environment heavily influence the technology we recommend for different textile fibers, fabrics and foam applications.

Regulatory Approvals

Microban ensures that all recommended our odor control technology have the appropriate regulatory approvals prior to commercialization and are globally registered for use in different commercial markets.

Mbns18 Scentry Revive Microban Antimicrobial Textiles

SCENTRY REVIVE®

Scentry Revive is a patent-pending technology that's been proven to neutralize odors and maintain freshness on apparel for up to five consecutive wears between washes. When the treated item is washed, the innovative odor-capture technology continues working for up to 50 home launderings. Essentially, Scentry Revive provides protection for the entire functional life of any fabric that's been treated with it.

SCENTRY®

Activewear is often made from polyester, nylons and elastane blends, which retain odors. Because washing alone does little to prevent or remove those odors, it does not take long before your running shoes or yoga pants are rendered useless by an overpowering stench. Scentry, our first odor control technology, works by forming a protective barrier on fabrics that traps body odor, preventing apparel from giving off an offensive smell during wear and between washings.
