Frequently  asked questions

Microban technology will remain present and active for the expected lifetime of the i-bin.

The Microban technology utilised in the i-bin is notified with the Biocidal Products Regulation (BPR) in Europe and registered with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in the US. Microban technology is used and trusted by renowned brands, manufacturers and product innovators in more than 50 countries worldwide.

Microban technology has been used safely for many years and continues to provide the benefits of material protection from spoilage, malodour, and premature degradation for thousands of products worldwide. Risk assessments by independent scientists, scientific bodies, and governmental agencies (including EPA, FDA, and regulatory authorities in Europe and Canada) have consistently reconfirmed the safety of Microban additives at the levels approved for use in consumer, commercial, and healthcare products. The Microban technology utilised in the i-bin is engineered directly into the material, meaning it will not leach out of the surface.

Yes, Microban technology works on surfaces exposed to moisture and humidity. In fact, moisture and humidity often provide the perfect environment for microbes to thrive, meaning built-in Microban protection becomes an important feature for surfaces exposed to such conditions.

ISO 22196 laboratory testing has shown that Microban technology actively inhibits bacterial growth on the i-bin, making it up to 99.99% cleaner than an untreated product.
