The Challenges

Plastic is a material that can be used in any fields and is closely related to human body. However, plastics are vulnerable to bacterial exposure and environmental hormones, such as Bisphenol A and phthalates. Bisphenol A and phthalates are detected in plastics and reveal the limitation of the use range. Thus, consumers started looking for a material that is equipped with antimicrobial ability, safe to the human body and environment, and can be used consistently in various indoor and outdoor environments.

By identifying the needs of consumers, LOTTE Chemical has developed a new antimicrobial material called ABF-0200HF. starex® evermoin ABS, ABF-0200HF is a material that can be applicable to products, such as bed cleaners which can be vulnerable to mites and bacteria, as it can maintain excellent antimicrobial ability in various living environments. This material can also hold a bacterial growth inhibition rate of 99.9%1) and superior fungal growth inhibition. It can also maintain the antimicrobial ability and high weather-ability at various daily environment conditions, such as light and moisture, and daily scratches with little changes in color for a long good as new look. Furthermore, it is also registered with the EPA which certifies there is no harm to the human body and environment.
