Antimicrobial Agents for Industrial Products

Antimicrobial agents are used in a wide range of products indispensable in everyday life, such as kitchen utensils, bathroom & toilet wares, other household goods, toys, fabrics, electrical appliances, building materials, car parts and so on. This is because of the importance of clean conditions of storage and use for a multiplicity of items across all aspects of our daily lives. Use of industrial antimicrobial additives gives manufacturers the opportunity to meet consumer needs by adding value to their end-products while at the same time distinguish them from others.
