MicrobanMicroban International has announced its participation in this year’s Foam Expo North America, taking place June 28 & 30. The global producer of antimicrobial treatments will have a dedicated booth on the expo floor, where it will showcase its various solutions for foam products, demonstrating how far these technologies have come since their inception, with older formulations giving way to a newer generation of more environmentally friendly additives. Microban offers built-in antimicrobials and odour control solutions, and a portfolio of technologies that can be effectively incorporated into a variety of foam-based materials. These solutions are already being employed by manufacturers in the healthcare, consumer, and commercial sectors to develop products with inherent protection against the growth of stain and odor-causing microbes. 

On the first day of the expo, Microban will host a presentation on how its technologies for foam can result in cleaner and fresher conditions, focusing on automotive interiors. Unwanted bacterial and fungal growth in humid and hot environments can wreak havoc on everyday surfaces, and automobiles are no exception—80 per cent of consumers express concerns about stains, persistent odours, and rapid mold growth inside of personal and public vehicles. The presentation will be given by Microban’s Senior Product Development Engineer, Dr. Mai Ha, who said, “I’m thrilled to be attending this year’s Foam Expo, and proud to be presenting applications of our innovative Microban antimicrobial additives in automotive interiors.”

New Digital Solution Helps Customers Bring Colours to Life

AkzoNobel 3D colour visualization tool
AkzoNobel Powder Coatings has developed a new web application 3D colour visualization tool within its Interpon webshop to help customers better understand how a powder coating’s colour, texture and finish that look good in theory, will actually appear in reality. 

The tool provides instant access to thousands of colours in the Interpon range. Using a 360-degree dynamic camera and simulated lighting, the customer is given a true-to-life image of how the colour performs to a degree of accuracy and realism not possible before in a virtual environment.  

Rather than the image being ‘flat’, the customer can orientate the ‘virtual’ panel to see how the light reflects and the colour looks from different angles.
