How does antimicrobial technology work?

Many antimicrobial products have been added to our product portfolios across cladding and adhesive laminates. The key difference in these new products is the antimicrobial treatment applied to the sheet or film, that prevents the growth of harmful microorganisms such as bacteria, fungi and moulds.

How it works:

To explain we are going to use the technology applied to our Hyg-ie-Clad antimicrobial cladding sheet - called Biomaster. 

These antimicrobial properties offer protection against mould, bacteria, and pathogens. It uses silver ions, a known biocide with natural antimicrobial and antiseptic properties that suppresses microbial reproduction.
Biomaster is incredibly durable, long-lasting and highly active. When added, it is dispersed throughout the entire sheet and becomes an integral part of the product. 
Silver is inorganic and non-leaching which means that, unlike organic antimicrobial agents/technologies, it stays within the item to which it is added.
The controlled release of the active ingredient provides maximum antibacterial protection for the lifetime of the product.

The antimicrobial technology adds value to any product when it is applied. With our wall cladding antimicrobial system, you can protect large environments quicker and with our antimicrobial laminate, you can also transform most common or standard surfaces, to be new and improved hygienic and antimicrobial.
