Antimicrobial - AlphaSan®
The Research & Development team at Milliken Chemical has done it again: provided another innovative solution to a very common problem. Milliken’s AlphaSan antimicrobial additive uses the power of silver to protect against bacteria and other microbes that cause foul odors, discoloration, corrosion and other problems on untreated surfaces.
The silver ions in AlphaSan antimicrobial additives can be used in a variety of applications to interfere with bacterial metabolisms, preventing reproduction and spreading. The result is an end product that is effective and durable. Thanks to Milliken's textile experience, as well as our innovative research in chemical formulations, AlphaSan offers excellent antimicrobial performance for plastics, fibers, foams and coatings.
