HUNTERSVILLE, N.C., Feb. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Microban International, Ltd., the global leader in built in antimicrobial product protection, and Magic American Products, Inc., makers of Magic(R) brand products, have partnered to launch new Magic(R) Bath Sealer Trims with Microban(R) antimicrobial product protection.
Inhibiting the growth of microbes, such as stain and odor causing bacteria, mold and mildew, Microban(R) antimicrobial product protection will keep the bath sealer trims cleaner between cleanings, providing consumers with an innovative bathroom sealing solution that is not only easy to apply, but easier to keep clean too. And, as Magic(R) Bath Sealer Trims are infused with Microban(R) antimicrobial protection during the manufacturing process, it won't wash off or wear away, even in environments that are continually moist.
"We entered this partnership to address heightened concerns from consumers about microbial growth in areas of the home, such as bathrooms, where moisture is most prevalent. We are excited to be able to address this concern and offer the first and only bath sealer trims with Microban(R) antimicrobial product protection," says Ralph Hickman, VP of Marketing and Product Development at Magic American -- a division of the Homax Group.
David Meyers, President and CEO of Microban International says, "Microban(R) technology makes perfect sense for this product application and we are happy to partner to bring innovative Magic(R) Bath Sealer Trims with Microban(R) antimicrobial protection to the market that will make bathroom cleaning easier and provide added peace of mind between cleanings."
Magic(R) Bath Sealer Trims, the first Magic(R) products to launch with exclusive Microban(R) antimicrobial product protection, will be available at select retail locations in February.
