Technology used by Sinomax for antimicrobial mattress protection
Posted June 17, 2020
HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. — Microban® International, a global leader in antimicrobial and odor control and prevention solutions, announced its partnership with Sinomax USA, Inc., a leading manufacturer and distributor of polyurethane comfort products, specializing in memory foam.
Sinomax recently launched its 4-Inch Wave Support Memory Foam Antimicrobial Mattress Topper with Walmart, and recently began producing medical-grade foam mattresses for hospitals. Both new offerings provide the reliable antimicrobial product protection of Microban’s ZPTECH® technology.
“Finding a trusted partner with deep expertise was first and foremost our priority when evaluating a primary antimicrobial sourcing for Sinomax,” said John Beliveau, Sinomax chief operating officer. “Microban was initially identified as the best choice for us to offer peace of mind to our customers in our memory foam pillows and topper products. We were then able to quickly expand its use and incorporate the technology into our hospital mattresses to fulfill those urgent needs.”
Microban ZPTECH is a dual-action antimicrobial that reduces the growth of the bacteria and fungi that cause the deterioration and unpleasant odor in a textile or foam. While reducing 99.9 percent of the growth of odor-causing bacteria, ZPTECH also lengthens the life of the product.
“The quick response Sinomax was able to successfully execute and offer Microban antimicrobial protection to hospitals was truly impressive,” said Brian Aylward, senior director of global textiles for Microban. “We are incredibly proud to have our technology included in these efforts and look forward to a long partnership of offering trusted, antimicrobial solutions to today’s consumers.”
Microban continues to work to revolutionize product performance with protection that lives on. Its portfiolio of textile-specific solutions also includes AEGIS® and SilverShield® for antimicrobial product protection, and Scenty and Scentry Revive for odor control. As part of its commitment to sustainable manufacturing processes Microban products are bluesign® and Oeko-Tex® approved.
