SANITIZED Introduces Antimicrobial Additive for Thermoplastic Processed Polymers SANITIZED has developed a high temperature resistance Sanitized® BroadTect product to durably protect polymers against a wide range of microorganisms. The product offers protection against gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria, mold and mildew, yeasts, and even algae.

Suitable for Thermoplastic Processing Methods

The new Sanitized® product from the BroadTect portfolio is suitable for thermoplastic processing methods such as extrusion processes or injection molding. The product features durable antimicrobial protection that is effective even after weathering. Good antiviral efficacy on surfaces has been also demonstrated.

The temperature-resistant, antimicrobial product is suitable for most thermoplastic polymers such as PE, PP, TPU, EVA, PVC, rubber (EPDM, NBR, SBR) that are used in the extrusion process or in injection molding. It is compatible with commonly used additives, making it usable for an abundance of applications.

Offers Protection Action Against Microbial Aggressors

The product offers protective action against microbial aggressors—even with ongoing washing and weathering. It is particularly beneficial for kitchen utensils, containers, filters, seals, packaging, or tarpaulins.

Handles, switches, seats, handrails, floors, or sanitary utensils treated with the product can help create wide-ranging antimicrobial protection, particularly in public spaces, in public transportation, or in schools.

With the new product for polymers, we offer the polymer industry an innovative, versatile, multi-protection product that ensures comprehensive, durable antimicrobial protection from any microorganisms. Surfaces are hygienically protected and treated against material deterioration, preventing odor emissions and stain formation,” summarizes Christine Niklas, Product Manager at SANITIZED.
