SANITIZED launches new antimicrobial product protecting polymers
Source:Adsale Plastics Network     Editor:JK    Date:19.Feb.2021

SANITIZED AG has developed a new antimicrobial product which has high temperature resistance and is suitable for thermoplastic processing methods such as extrusion processes or injection molding.


The new Sanitized brand product from the BroadTect portfolio features durable antimicrobial protection that is effective even after weathering. In addition, good antiviral efficacy on surfaces has been demonstrated.

Sanitized BroadTect product protects polymers against a wide range of microorganisms.


Normally, each antimicrobial active ingredient has a specific and limited spectrum of efficacy. In a comprehensive series of tests, the developers of the company have managed to combine specially selected active substances in a way that synergically complements their spectra of efficacy. The result is a product that delivers comprehensive, durable antimicrobial protection from bacteria, mildew and mold, yeast, and algae.


This temperature-resistant, antimicrobial product is suitable for most thermoplastic polymers such as PE, PP, TPU, EVA, PVC, rubber (EPDM, NBR, SBR) that are used in the extrusion process or in injection molding. It is compatible with commonly used additives, making it usable for an abundance of applications.


Protecting polymers from microbes means simultaneously ensuring both hygiene management and material protection. As demonstrated in various series of tests, the new product guarantees protective action against microbial aggressors — even with ongoing washing and weathering. It is particularly beneficial for kitchen utensils, containers, filters, seals, packaging, or tarpaulins.

The product is suitable for most thermoplastic polymers.


The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly increased the importance of hygiene in public spaces. Treated polymer handles, switches, seats, handrails, floors, or sanitary utensils can help create safe conditions, particularly in public spaces, in public transportation, or in schools.


“With the new product for polymers, we offer the polymer industry an innovative, versatile, multi-protection product that ensures comprehensive, durable antimicrobial protection from any microorganisms. Surfaces are hygienically protected and treated against material deterioration, preventing odor emissions and stain formation,” summarized Christine Niklas, Product Manager at SANITIZED AG.
