LOUISVILLE, KY (June 28, 2021) – With the addition of Microban® technology, HMI’s C.10 Glass Protectant is the premium choice for maintaining high-end glass shower enclosures and specialty glass products. HMI is the first glass manufacturer to offer this advanced antimicrobial technology, adding a layer of invisible protection to its custom glass for smarter, cleaner showers.

Recognized worldwide and trusted for its long-lasting product protection and cleanliness, Microban works with more than 250 leading companies including Samsonite, Poly, Rubbermaid, Sherwin Williams, and GE Appliances to enhance more than 1,000 products. Its antimicrobial technologies, odor control solutions, and smart surface technologies are used to treat everything from medical devices and door hardware to school supplies and travel accessories.

As the clear leader in innovation, HMI is always striving for new ways to offer the best in custom shower glass. Assessing solutions for cleaner, safer showers is the company’s top priority. HMI understands that microbes can live anywhere, including on the most beautiful shower glass. In the correct conditions, bacteria can double in number every 20 minutes on an untreated surface, causing bad odors, reducing product lifetime, staining products and surfaces, and making products difficult to clean. The best treatment is prevention, making Microban the perfect partner for HMI.

HMI’s C.10 with Microban is integrated during the glass manufacturing process and becomes part of the molecular structure of the custom glass product. The Microban technology inhibits bacteria reproduction. On an untreated surface, the bacteria reproduce rapidly, but on a C.10 with Microban treated surface, the bacteria are reduced by up to 99%.

C.10 with Microban works continuously to keep shower glass cleaner between showers. The invisible protection results in visible cleanliness and less mold and mildew between cleanings. Everyone from homeowners to the hospitality industry will enjoy peace of mind that Microban technology is proven effective against a broad spectrum of bacteria on your shower glass. Protecting the glass from the growth of degrading microbes also extends the life of the glass.

Because of its clear nature, C.10 with Microban is an ideal protectant for any custom design with digital in-glass printing. The product will not affect or tint the design, allowing customers to safeguard their custom glass investment and ensuring the work of art is safe from wear and tear.

This new product offering is key for general contractors, architects, or commercial designers serving clients in the hospitality industry. Overall cleanliness was ranked as the most important attribute for hotel guests, surpassing both price and location. Specifying an HMI glass shower and C.10 with Microban glass protectant allows hospitality business owners to effectively and continuously keep showers cleaner, while giving guests the cleanliness they seek and the most enjoyable hotel experience.
