Children's & baby products

In today’s world, the health and safety of our children are paramount. This concern extends to the toys and products they interact with daily. At MatX, we’ve developed a revolutionary antimicrobial additive for polymers, ensuring children’s products, like toys and drinking bottles, are not only fun and engaging but also hygienically safe. Our technology is functional without the use of biocides, employing an anti-adhesive principle that prevents bacteria and fungi from surviving on the product’s surface. This approach ensures there is no leaching, and microbes cannot build resistance over time.

Teething Toys

Antimicrobial additives in teething toys can offer peace of mind to parents. These toys are often chewed on by babies, making them prone to bacterial growth. With an antimicrobial additive, the toys remain hygienic, reducing the risk of germ transmission to the baby.

Plastic Building Blocks

Frequently handled by children, these toys can become breeding grounds for bacteria. An antimicrobial additive ensures that the blocks stay cleaner, safeguarding children from harmful microbes during play.

Sippy Cups and Bottles

Items like sippy cups and bottles are constantly in contact with children’s mouths and hands. Integrating antimicrobial technology into these products helps maintain their cleanliness, significantly reducing the risk of bacterial contamination.

Some applications and benefits

Why use an anti-microbial additive?

MatX products for baby and child applications are designed with safety and hygiene in mind, incorporating the AMBX additive to ensure antimicrobial protection without harmful biocides.

The AMBX additive is a special additive in the form of a masterbatch used to provide products with antimicrobial properties. It has been developed by MatX and has the ability to make products >99.99% free from microbacteria without the use of biocides.

Absolutely, our products are designed for durability and long-lasting antimicrobial action, even with regular cleaning, making them ideal for maintaining hygiene in baby and child environments.

Thanks to the passive anti-adhesive principle, bacteria and fungi have no chance of survival. Because the technology does not rely on migration, there is no leaching, and bacteria cannot build up resistance over time.

The AMBX additive is a special additive in the form of a masterbatch used to provide products with antimicrobial properties. It has been developed by MatX and has the ability to make products >99.99% free from microbacteria without the use of biocides.

The functionality of the technology does not rely on migration, so nothing leaches away from the material over time. That means it will never run out; it is simply always there. So it will never fade away or wear off.

The AMBX additive is effective against a wide range of microbacteria. While it can contribute to reducing the spread of resistant bacteria, it’s important to note that it doesn’t provide complete immunity to all types of bacterial resistance. It is still important to practice proper hygiene and infection prevention.
