Micrillon® - the first rechargeable broad-spectrum antimicrobial polymer additive developed with the primary goal of reducing the risk of preventable HAIs by making it possible for all frequently touched environmental surfaces to become a rechargeable Micrillon® antibacterial/antiviral surface.
Micrillon, can have a significant impact on the spread of drug-resistant infections and preventable hospital associated infections (pHAIs), now considered the fourth-leading cause of death in the United States. Micrillon, which has earned multiple patents worldwide, can be incorporated into a wide range of polymer (plastic) products to help mitigate risk of such infections.
Preventing pHAIs Head-On Micrillon is a disruptive, innovative chemistry that has the potential to help prevent pHAI’s head-on. The broad-spectrum antimicrobial is the result of more than a decade of research and development of best-in-class products and training – including color-coded systems and a ONEperROOM methodology for reducing the risk of cross-contamination in leading hospitals. Micrillon’s unique properties include antiviral efficacy, the ability to recharge for the life of the product, and no leeching into the environment. When incorporated into a product made from plastic, the entire surface, whether a fiber or solid part, can be charged with chlorine molecules. When bacteria, mold and viruses come into contact with the Micrillon surface, they are eliminated. A Micrillon fiber wiper then can be used with a disinfectant or chlorine-containing sanitizer to remove soil and organic matter while simultaneously recharging the surface.
CPULL with Micrillon
The first product in the Micrillon line is a hospital privacy curtain-pull, the CPULL. This product is ideal for use in hospital, long term care and nursing homes. In the future, umf Corp will introduce additional Micrillon products, including surgical wipes, cubicle curtains, bath towels and HVAC/filtration products.
