LapisShield is the latest coating innovation from a leader in antimicrobial technology, demonstrating the company’s ongoing push to provide more sustainable solutions to stop microbial growth. With this state-of-the-art technology, manufacturers can enhance their coatings with product protection capabilities to protect against the harmful effects of microorganisms, including stains, odors and premature degradation, thereby extending the life of the coated product. LapisShield provides superior quality and stability by optimizing processing and manufacturing requirements. It also allows for the storage of paint batches for future use, preventing unnecessary waste and optimizing resources for more sustainable paint manufacturing.
LapisShield is specifically designed to meet the needs of the water-based coatings industry, which is constantly striving to create more transparent and environmentally friendly systems to create seamless surfaces. This breakthrough technology is compatible with thin coating systems and offers enhanced UV stability, limiting the impact on the optical performance of waterborne coatings, making it ideal for clear glass or plastic applications. Michael Ruby, President of Microban International, commented: “We are delighted to launch LapisShield as the latest example of Microban’s commitment to developing sustainable, non-heavy metal antimicrobial technologies for its global partners. Our coatings experts are tirelessly committed to delivering greener technology to provide the best quality and compatibility for waterborne coating systems. LapisShield’s excellent stability and clarity allow it to be easily integrated with a wide variety of coating systems, including anti-fingerprint and anti-smudge formulations, as well as applications requiring optically clear properties.”
LapisShield is available to waterborne paint manufacturers around the world to help prevent the growth of bacteria, mold and mildew on a variety of substrates, including glass, metal, wood and plastic. Partners will also benefit from Microban’s 38 years of antimicrobial technology expertise and renowned turnkey support services.
