Microban International presents LapisShield, a novel, non-heavy-metal technology designed to seamlessly integrate antimicrobial functionality into any water-based coating formulation. This broad-spectrum antimicrobial technology is proven to inhibit bacterial growth by up to 99.99 % and prevents the growth of mold and mildew, helping to protect treated surfaces from various sources of microbial degradation.
LapisShield is specifically designed to meet the needs of the water-based coatings industry, a sector that is constantly striving for clearer and more environmentally friendly systems that create a seamless finish. This ground-breaking technology is compatible with thin coating systems and offers enhanced UV stability, limiting impacts on the optical properties of water-based coatings and making them ideal for transparent glass or plastic applications.
Michael Ruby, President of Microban International, commented: “We are excited to introduce LapisShield as the latest example of Microban’s commitment to developing sustainable, non-heavy-metal antimicrobial technologies for its partners worldwide. Our coatings experts have worked tirelessly to deliver a more environmentally friendly technology that offers the best quality and compatibility for water-based coating systems. The fantastic stability and clarity of LapisShield allows it to be easily integrated with a wide variety of coatings systems, including anti-fingerprint and anti-smudge formulations, and applications requiring optically clear performance.”
LapisShield is available to water-based coating manufacturers across the world to help prevent the growth of bacteria, mold, and mildew on a variety of substrates, including glass, metal, wood, and plastics.
