Smart Turf and Microban


Now more than ever, there is cause for concern about the presence of bacteria on surfaces in the home and in the spaces where we work and play every day. Similarly, the growth of mold and mildew on building materials is just as problematic causing costly repairs and unpleasant experiences. Collectively, bacteria, mold and mildew are known as microbes, and they are literally everywhere. Microbes are all around us thriving and reproducing on surfaces, in the air, and even on our skin! On some surfaces, microbes have the capable to double in number within twenty minutes time. The good news is, not all microbes are bad, but the bad ones can ultimately cause stains and odors on product surfaces, making cleaning a much harder task than it needs to be, and ultimately degrading a product over time causing it to have a shorter lifecycle. As microbes are continuously consuming nutrients and reproducing on surfaces, these problems will increase over time if left unchecked.

When it comes to building materials, the best defense against the negative effects of microbes is prevention. By introducing technology that helps products to stay cleaner and last longer, builders and end users can enjoy the peace of mind that comes with a cleaner turf product, a higher return on investment, and a positive sustainability advantage. That’s why Smart Turf incorporates Microban antimicrobial solutions into turf materials to help inhibit the growth and reproduction of these not so welcome microbes that can cause stains, odors, product degradation and an overall negative product experience.

Smart Turf products feature built-in antimicrobial and odor control technology, powered by Microban – the global leader and most trusted brand in the antimicrobial additives industry. Smart Turf is the exclusive Microban partner in the turf category. Antimicrobial technology is introduced during the manufacturing process and is integrated into the turf. It will not wash off or wear away over time. Microban antimicrobial and odor control technologies disrupt the internal processes of bacteria, mold and mildew so that they can no longer consume nutrients or reproduce. Smart Turf products stay cleaner in between cleanings and are protected against a broad spectrum of stain and odor causing bacteria, helping Smart Turf products to achieve superior levels of cleanliness and freshness.

Watch the video below to see how Microban antimicrobial technology helps prevent the growth of bacteria, mold and mildew on Smart Turf products.

Smart Turf products with Microban technology are the perfect solution for landscapes, playgrounds, pet areas, golf greens, athletic turf, and commercial properties and more. Microban technologies are fully registered with the United States Environmental Protection Agency and demonstrate a long history of safe and effective use for a wide variety of applications in building materials. Smart Turf is proactively protected against unwanted microbial growth so that end users can worry less and live more, enjoying a truly cleaner and fresher turf experience.

In addition to enhanced levels of cleanliness and freshness, Smart Turf is a better choice than real grass for multiple reasons including:
