Microban® International welcomes the recently approved AATCC test method – TM211-2021 – that has been developed to support the textiles industry. This novel and strategically important, standardized Drager method measures the reduction of odor on materials treated with antimicrobial technologies, and partners well with existing textile test methods such as the AATCC TM100, to show the correlation between bacterial reduction and odor control. Microban was one of the early adopters of this groundbreaking method that can for the first time provide a truly quantitative evaluation of the valuable, real-world and functional benefits of antimicrobial chemistries by quantifying odor reduction.
