Mar 07, 2011, 10:17 ET from USGreentech

CINCINNATI, March 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- USGreentech announced that Envirofill®, the infill of choice for athletic turf and synthetic lawns has teamed up with the global leader in antimicrobial product protection, Microban® International. The exclusive partnership provides an added level of cleanliness protection for the lifetime of your artificial playing field or lawn.

Infused into Envirofill during the manufacturing process, Microban antimicrobial technology inhibits the growth of bacteria, mold, and mildew that can cause stains, odors, and product deterioration. On unprotected infill, bacteria can double in number every 20 minutes. But when microbes come in contact with Envirofill, Microban protection penetrates the cell wall of the microorganism and disrupts cell functions making the microorganism unable to function, grow, and reproduce.

According to Adam Coleman, Operations Manager for USGreentech, "The field of play can be a harsh environment where microbes can thrive. Now players and coaches can have peace of mind knowing that their athletic playing surface is protected from damaging bacteria, mold, and mildew."

Playing surfaces with Microban antimicrobial technology work around the clock for an added level of cleanliness protection. It will not wash or wear out and its antimicrobial protection works continuously to help to extend the longevity, integrity, and appearance of Envirofill.

About Envirofill

Found only in the heart of Texas, this naturally occurring sand is tough, but not abrasive. Due to their size and uniformity, Envirofill grains resist compaction to keep your field playable, game after game. And, Microban® antimicrobial technology is infused into the infill during the manufacturing process to inhibit the growth of bacteria, mold, and mildew that can cause stains, odors, and product deterioration. Since 2005, Envirofill has been deployed in over 50 sports fields around the world and is the basis for hundreds of landscape installations.
