What is Antimicrobial Technology?

Antimicrobial: adjective | an·ti·mi·cro·bi·al – Destroying or inhibiting the growth of microorganisms and especially pathogenic microorganisms.

Antimicrobial technology can be defined as a substance that works to destroy or inhibit the growth and reproduction of bacteria, mold, and mildew.

Antibacterial + Antifungal = Antimicrobial

Unlike disinfectants, which provide a limited residual activity, integrated antimicrobial technology, such as our Microbe-Safe™ additive, works to continuously reduce the number of microbes on your artificial grass throughout its expected lifecycle.

What is an Antimicrobial Additive?

An antimicrobial additive is a substance that contains an appropriately registered antimicrobial agent.

Integrated into our turf products during the manufacturing process, an antimicrobial additive such as Microbe-Safe™ will provide around-the-clock product protection from the growth of microbes including bacteria, fungi, and algae.

Additive formulations are based on a series of factors including target material and production processes. 

Built-in antimicrobial additives will remain present and active for the expected lifetime of a turf product.

Microbe-Safe™ Antimicrobial Protection

Microbe-Safe™ antimicrobial protection works at a cellular level to continually disrupt the growth and reproduction of microorganisms that contaminate treated turf products. The technology operates a multi-modal attack by damaging the protein, cell membrane, DNA, and internal systems of a microbe, causing it to die.
