Microban and Fluidmaster Collaborate

Microban International Ltd., a global leader in built-in antimicrobial technology and product protection, recently announced a partnership with Fluidmaster. Fluidmaster is introducing its Universal Flapper line with Microban® antimicrobial technology to help prevent toilet flapper breakdown due to bacteria.

High moisture areas throughout the bathroom can be hot spots for the growth of microbes such as bacteria, mold and mildew. Built in to the flappers during the manufacturing process, Microban antimicrobial technology is engineered to work continuously for the lifetime of the flapper and won’t wash off or wear away.

“We are excited to announce our partnership with Fluidmaster and look forward to working together,” said Richard Chapman, vice president of Marketing for Microban International. “Their history of innovation and understanding of the plumbing industry is a great fit for our antimicrobial technologies.”

“We share the enthusiasm expressed by Microban International, an excellent partner for us, as we become the exclusive provider of flappers with built-in Microban product protection,” said Scott McDonald, vice president of Marketing for Fluidmaster.  “Toilet flappers are a great application for Microban as homeowners and plumbers alike seek ways to help inhibit the growth of bacteria, mold and mildew to reduce degradation of microbe-impacted parts.”
