A unique new antibacterial laminating film has been developed. These films show antiviral properties under ISO 21702:2019. The reduction of virus on the surface of the films reaches 65% (tested on corona-virus type virus) after 2 hours of exposition. These unique new laminating films are designed with antibacterial properties which specifically attacks the feared Escherichia Coli (E. Coli) bacteria as well as the Staphylococcus Aureus (staph infection). Outside lab test results obtained almost total elimination of bacteria on the packed product in contact with the film. Antimicrobial killed 99.9% of test bacteria contacting the surface area. Anti-Bacterial protection works after repeatedly handling for up to 12 months. Ideal for menus, graphics, packaging and any printed media that will be continuously handled by different individuals. Available in a heat activated and pressure sensitive version. Gloss or Matte Finish available.
Derprosa Antimicrobial is effective against coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19 disease which has resulted in the pandemic that has plagued our society for more than a year.
Trials have shown that after 24 hours there is a reduction of more than 84% of coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 on its surface area compared to a laminating film without our antimicrobial agent.
Derprosa Antimicrobial is the new designation of our Bacterstop film which has been widely considered the best film to prevent infection by bacteria. Now, we set out to verify its effectiveness for viruses by testing with different types of coronavirus. The film was first tested with the feline coronavirus due to availability and capabilities of independent specialized laboratories. Finally, the film was recently tested with the human coronavirus SARS-CoV-2. In both trials, the performance of Derprosa Antimicrobial films has been outstanding.
Test results proved that Derprosa Antimicrobial inhibits proliferation and neutralizes the survival of bacteria and viruses on non-porous surfaces. It has been specifically tested by independent laboratories against the Methicillin-resistant bacteria Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA) and Escherichia Coli (E-Coli), and the feline coronavirus viruses (FCoV) and human coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2).
Therefore, Derprosa Gloss Antimicrobial and Derprosa Matte Antimicrobial are the best options to ensure the print integrity, provide a glossy or matte finish, and especially—protect those who come in contact with editorial, packaging, or commercial communication pieces in paper support.
These films provide the same properties, machinability, and technical performance as other traditional films including wet, thermal, and thermal digital lamination versions. The antimicrobial effect is long-lasting, odourless, harmless to humans, and totally saf
