Antimicrobial Printing

By September 11, 2020Blog, Home
Our litho printing presses can apply a coating with an antimicrobial additive that can resist, inhibit and prevent the growth of microbes, including bacteria, fungi and viruses. 

Our two state of the art Heidelberg presses can apply a water-based coating that incorporates an antimicrobial additive that has been tested under ISO22916 and proven effective against a range of microbes including:
  • Legionella bacteria
  • Listeria bacteria
  • Salmonella bacteria
  • E Coli bacteria
  • Influenza A H1N1 virus
The coating contains silver Ion additives that have been proven to reduce microbes by up to 99.99%. The coating offers lifetime protection of the printed piece and represents a cost effective solution for anyone looking to reduce the risk of transmission, particularly on pieces of print with high person to person use. If you are interested in knowing more, or having the antimicrobial coating applied to your printing, please get in touch with your usual contact or email us here.
Important – The manufacturer has not yet been able to test the additive against the Covid-19 virus and no claims can be made in that regard.
