Torlys announced the signing of a category exclusive partnership with Microban International for North America to include Microban Antimicrobial Product Protection in the production of its EverWood and EverTile luxury vinyl floors.

A non-exclusive licensing agreement is also in place for EverWood and EverTile in Europe.

“Torlys has created an innovative solution to help inhibit the growth of mold and mildew at the floor level,” said Peter Barretto, president and CEO of Torlys. “EverWood and EverTile Elite and Premier luxury vinyl floors will now have Microban Antimicrobial Product Protection built in to our patented CorkPlus attached underlay. Microban specializes in helping companies implement fresher, cleaner, longer-lasting products and the integration of their technology into our EverWood and EverTile luxury vinyl flooring products seemed like a natural fit.”
