New Antimicrobial Compounds from RTP Company can protect against damage caused by microorganisms such as mold, mildew, or fungi. Such damage can shorten the product life of plastic parts and can manifest itself as odor, discoloration, loss of properties, or loss of function.
RTP Company uses a broad range of EPA-registered additives that combat the survival and growth of undesirable microorganisms on the surface and within plastic parts. These additives can be incorporated into any engineering resin at levels that balance performance with safety and efficacy.
Typical applications for Antimicrobial Compounds include sprinkler heads, hair care products, plumbing/water fixtures, houseware products, footwear products, athletic apparatus, and compounds that use organic fillers.
