HOW DEFEND WORKS

                                                                  

 

Microban antimicrobial product protection works to disrupt the growth and reproduction of microorganisms that contaminate a treated surface.

 

Antimicrobial product protection is infused into a product, and starts to work as soon as a microorganism comes in contact with the treated surface.

 

Protein Damage: antimicrobial agents attack the proteins of a microbe, causing failure of essential functions.

Cell Disruption: antimicrobial agents damage the membrane of a microbe, leading to the loss of critical nutrients.

Oxidative Damage: antimicrobial agents cause increased oxygen levels, leading to significant damage to the internal system of microbes.

DNA Disruption: antimicrobial agents interfere with the genetics of a microbe, ultimately preventing its growth and reproduction.

 

By creating an inhospitable environment for microorganisms, built-in antimicrobials protect products from staining, bad odors, and premature degradation.
