Microban International has launched Refresh, which is company’s newest, patent-pending, and sustainable odour capture technology that is completely metal-free. This new innovative technology is proven to decrease odours by around 93 percent on the polyester-rich clothes.
This new patent-pending formula has been designed to address the needs of both consumers and producers, by providing an effective solution to fight permastink without relying on the traditional heavy metal chemistries.
Michael Ruby, president at Microban International, said Microban is focused on sustainable solutions, and is very proud to have developed Refresh, a more environment-friendly technology designed to tackle the issue of persistent odours on clothing without using any chemistries based on metal.
Microban International is a part of the Barr Brands International (BBI), and home to well-known global brands in the antimicrobial, sanitisation, and odour control markets, including Microban and Ultra-Fresh markets.
With Refresh, apparel brands and manufacturers across the world can deliver smart textiles that stay fresher for longer, along with extending their usable lifetime, and decreasing the load of textile waste that ends up in landfill every year.
The company is headquartered in the region of North Karolina, with operations in Europe, Asia Pacific, and Europe.
