Microban enters partnership with Rifra Masterbatches to provide antimicrobial properties for material additives

Antimicrobials have always been of interest for manufacturing companies, but adding them into products can be challenging and is fraught with regulatory loopholes. Microban has a wealth of expertise in incorporating built-in antimicrobial protection into a vast array of products. The partnership will begin as a distributor agreement but has the vision of exploring further opportunities for the co-development of unique additive products which will combine features and simplify formulations.

According to Elisabetta Rampa, General Manager at Rifra Masterbatches, most masterbatch producers have decided to avoid an antimicrobial product portfolio because of the challenges associated with formulation and regulatory requirements.

“We wanted to address the needs of our customers and to face up to these challenges and have chosen to work with Microban to achieve that goal,” she says.
