Topic: Antimicrobial Additive Technologies for Plastic Products

Speaker: Tim McGinnis | Entec Medical Business Manager

Date & Time: October 7th, 2020 | 1:00 - 2:00 PM ET

Description: With the COVID-19 pandemic, there’s been renewed interest in ESCR (environmental stress cracking resistant) materials and antimicrobial additives for all manner of durable plastic products. Today’s healthcare-grade chemical disinfectants, which kill viruses, bacteria and other microbes, are being used pervasively, but the market is also demanding technologies which actively kill microbes between disinfection cleanings. Fortunately, there are a number of well-known antimicrobial additive technologies with documented efficacy in a wide variety of applications. However, careful consideration must be given to the type of antimicrobial used with the intended plastic resin. In this session we will review these critical performance considerations, efficacy and associated marketing claims.

Join Entec for a review of antimicrobial additive technologies which can be incorporated in a variety of resins and kill microbes between prescribed cleanings.
