Orbis Corp., a manufacturer of returnable packaging products, has announced that the company has formed an alliance with Microban Products Co. (MPC), a provider of antimicrobial technology. Orbis says the alliance enables it to incorporate the benefits of antimicrobial product protection into a wide variety of returnable packaging products.
Microban's antimicrobial products, which are molded into plastic containers during the manufacturing process, are designed to inhibit the growth of stain- and odor-causing bacteria, mold and mildew.
Orbis says the use of the Microban products will not eliminate the need for disinfectants or replace conventional hygiene practices. "What it is designed to do is provide an additional level of protection against odor- and stain-causing microbes in between regular cleanings," the company says. "This is especially helpful in hard-to-clean areas."
Orbis, a subsidiary of Menasha Corp., is based in Oconomowoc, Wis. The company can be reached at (888) 307-2185 or visited online at www.orbiscorporation.com
