Milliken Antimicrobial Agent Receives EPA Approval

Spartanburg-based Milliken Chemical has received approval from the Environmental Protection Agency for its silver-based antimicrobial product, Antimicrobial AlphaSan®, for use in heating, ventilation and air-conditioning equipment and related materials.With the new approval, AlphaSan, which inhibits the growth of bacteria and mold, is now available for use in resin, fiber and plastic articles for applications such as air handlers, coils, fins, insulation, rigid or flexible ducts, filters, heat exchangers and air purifiers.In addition, AlphaSan, already used in applications such as textiles and medical devices, has recently been added to the list of accepted active ingredients required for biologically active textiles to receive the Oeko-Tex 100 Certification for product safety.
