HUNTERSVILLE, N.C., Sept. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Microban International, Ltd., the global leader in built-in antimicrobial product protection, is pleased to announce their partnership with Custom Building Products, the leading brand in the USA of performance-driven tile and stone installation systems.  Custom Building Products recently launched its first product featuring Microban antimicrobial technology with additional lines to follow. 

High moisture areas such as bathrooms are hot spots for the growth of microbes such as, bacteria, mold and mildew.  Microban antimicrobial protection will be added into select Custom Building Products grouts and sealers to inhibit the growth of these stain-causing agents.  Microban technologies are engineered to work continuously even between cleanings.

"Microban antimicrobial protection helps protect the products of leading manufacturers around the world," says Catherine Potechin, VP Sales & Marketing for Microban International.  "We're pleased to add Custom Building Products' grouts and sealers to the more than 1,000 products we help make easier to clean and keep cleaner for longer."

"The integration of Microban technology into some of our high-performance product solutions brings a tremendous value added benefit to our customers," notes Custom Building Products Director, Product Management, Eric Carr.  "Our goal is to create performance-driven products that lead our industry and deliver benefits exceeding our customer's expectations.  Microban helps us achieve that goal in a very practical and impactful way."

Fusion Pro™ Single Component Grout™ is the first product from Custom with Microban technology to hit the market. Ready-to-use and requiring no mixing, Fusion Pro features a technologically advanced formula that is easy to spread and clean.  This next-generation grout solution cures with exceptional hardness, similar to cement grouts, while delivering superior color consistency and high stain resistance characteristics of epoxy grout.  For more information on the Fusion Pro line of grout and to look for future lines with Microban Technology, visit
