- Developed by Microban International, ZPTech® is based on zinc pyrithione, incorporated into products during the manufacturing process. Unlike other antimicrobials (such as silver, which is highly effective against bacteria), Zinc pyrithione is a wide spectrum antimicrobial, effective against not just bacteria but also on the growth of fungi including mold, mildew and algae. Microban's ZPTech’s antibacterial and antifungal properties make products more appealing to cleanliness-conscious consumers and business buyers, particularly in polymer products most likely to be used in moist, humid environments. These include cleaning sponges, shower curtains, bath mats, foam sandals, polyolefin film liners (often used in lunchboxes), molded safety shower seats, toilet seats, commercial cleaning trolleys and buckets, commercial refrigerator door handles and even mattresses.
