The Microban® Advantage

Exploded view of Microban® Technology

Granite and TREND Transformations has an exclusive partnership with Microban®. Isn’t that great? We think so, because that means our etherium® By E-Stone surfaces are the only engineered stone products with built-in 24/7 Microban® protection. Microban® is the cutting-edge antimicrobial technology with a long history of safe and effective use.
Even better, this protection lasts for a lifetime!

Our etherium® By E-Stone engineered stone countertop surfaces have always been nonporous and mold, mildew, heat, stain and scratch-resistant. Now with Microban® – they’re better and cleaner than ever!

What is Microban® technology?

Check out all the bacteria an ordinary surface has!

Based upon standard laboratory tests and is provided for comparative purposes to substantiate antimicrobial activity for non-public health applications

Ordinary surface

Bacteria growth over the course of 2 to 24 hours on ordinary surface

Surface with Microban® built-in

Bacteria growth over the course of 2 to 24 hours on ordinary surface

How does it work?

Full integration

The technology is integrated during the manufacturing process. It becomes part of the molecular structure of the product and will not wash off or wear away.

Surface contamination

The treated surface becomes contaminated with microbes as a result of human contact, environmental conditions and/or lapses in cleaning.

Technology at work

The technology penetrates the cell wall of each microbe and inhibits its ability to grow and reproduce.

A cleaner surface

The treated surface is protected from microbial proliferation for its expected lifetime and remains cleaner in-between cleanings.

What are the benefits?

Invisible protection, visible cleanliness

Product cleanliness is visibly improved without affecting the appearance, functions or durability of your product.

Works continuously

Microban® actively reduces the growth of bacteria 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Cleaner between cleanings & easier to clean

While not a substitute for regular cleaning, the added technology keeps products cleaner.

Protection that lasts for the life of the product

Once integrated during manufacturing, Microban® will last for the expected lifetime of a product surface.

Extended product lifetime

Inhibiting the growth of degrading microbes means the expected lifetime of your engineered stone product is extended.

Effective against a broad spectrum of bacteria

Microban® technology has been proven effective against a broad spectrum of bacteria.
