Advancing antimicrobial protection through science & technology
Microban 24 Hour provides long-lasting protection against E.Aerogenes and S.Aureus Bacteria
When used as directed, Microban 24 Hour products provides 24 hour protection against the E. aerogenes and S. aureus bacteria, which are commonly associated with the following infections:
- Lower respiratory tract
- Urinary tract
- Skin & soft tissue
Microban 24 kills 99.9% of surface bacteria and continues to protect after multiple touches.*
Unlike other disinfectants that can’t protect against repeated touching, Microban 24 kills 99.9% of surface bacteria, and provides continuous surface protection from microorganism colonization for 24 hours, even after multiple touches.*
Kills SARS-CoV-2 virus & 99.9% of cold and flu viruses initially
Bacteria isn’t the only microorganism that Microban 24 kills. Antimicrobial agents in Microban 24 Multi-Purpose Cleaner and Sanitizing Spray kill the SARS-CoV-2 virus initially in 5 minutes when used as directed.† Microban 24 Sanitizing Spray also kills 99.9% of cold and flu viruses initially within 5 minutes of being applied.†
Creates a protective bacteria shield for up to 24 hours
After initially killing 99.9% of bacteria, Microban 24 anti-microbial agents continue to protect surfaces against microorganism colonization:
Quaternary ammonium compounds are encapsulated in a synthetic polymer that are able to adhere to any surface.
This polymer releases small amounts of bacterial-fighting ingredients, creating a protective shield for up to 24 hours.*
Surfaces treated with Microban 24 resist abrasions by touches, gentle rubbing, even with multiple touches!*

Investigating the science behind Microban 24
Microban antimicrobial properties are built into Microban 24 products during manufacturing. When microbes come into contact with a product surface, Microban antimicrobial protection immediately penetrates the cell wall of the microorganism and disrupts it, so the microorganism is unable to grow and reproduce. Microban 24’s antimicrobial protection then works continuously to maintain a consistently lower bio-burden than is normally seen with a sanitizing product. Hence the unique long term protection that Microban 24 products bring to many hard surfaces
