With the emergence of Covid-19, maintaining strict hygiene measures and avoiding contact with everyday surfaces has become the new normal.

But as shops, offices and other businesses slowly return to work, it is impossible to completely avoid touching and handling items.

Which is why we are pleased to announce our new offering – antimicrobial coatings for paper-based print and packaging products such as books, leaflets, magazines and boxes.

The coating comes in the form of a matt or gloss varnish, and works by covering the product surface and killing any germs – bacterial, fungal and viral – that come into contact with it.

The key ingredient is silver, long known for its cleansing qualities. As the germs travel through the air and hit the coated surface the silver particles act by rupturing their cell membranes, immobilising them by depleting oxygen, and destroying their reproductive receptor.

Added benefits include:

  • It is highly durable.
  • There is no discolouring.
  • It’s gentle on the environment.
  • And kind to skin.

The cost is very competitive and minimal time is added to the overall production process. All outweighed by the peace of mind it brings.
