  • Report Description
  • Summary

Antimicrobial additives can be hosted into a plastic surface during the manufacturing process to provide lasting protection from microbes. An additive encompass a precise antimicrobial active, which can be formulated into a concentrated powder, liquid suspension or masterbatch pellet depending on the type of plastic, the manufacturing process employed and the desired end-use of product. Furthermore, antimicrobial additives are appropriate for almost all standard thermoplastics, high-performance plastics and engineering plastics. Moreover, plastic products such as containers, reusable cups, plates can harbor dangerous bacteria if the storing conditions are unhygienic. This can pose a possible health risk to the people. This is where antimicrobial plastics would play a huge role. Besides effectively preventing bacteria growth, antimicrobial plastics also stop the formation of biofilms. Biofilm formation is quite general in plastic objects and surfaces. More recently, due to the significance increase of high-performance plastics and composites and widespread application, the market for antimicrobial plastic is projected to propel in near future.
