Class O Armaflex engineered foam insulation materials from Armacell, including sheets, tubes and coils are now supplied with built-in antimicrobial protection, providing continuous and lifelong protection against potent
The products are particularly appropriate for use in buildings with high occupancy levels but can be used anywhere to provide added 24/7 protection against harmful microbes such as bacteria, mould and mildew.
The protection is provided by Microban, a proven technology which is incorporated in the manufacturing process of the insulation materials.
On contact, this protection penetrates the cell walls of micro organisms, disabling their ability to function, grow and reproduce. An inherent part of the insulation material, the protection is permanent and cannot be removed during handling, washing or general wear. Effectiveness is also maintained in conditions of heat and cold found in applications for thermal insulation materials.
