This latest product from Graphic Image Films gives additional protection to any finished job. The film is extruded with a specially developed additive to give it an anti-bacterial property. This remains within the material for the lifetime of the film. Contrary to other products on the market, which are predominately coatings, this film for paper lamination is impregnated with this special capability. The critical advantage of which is that the anti-bacterial properties do not reduce or wear out over time.
Available in both Gloss & Matt finishes, the films are BOPP (Polypropylene) based. They are the same as Graphic Image Films arts range, which means they behave exactly the same as the other films. This makes it extremely easy to adopt as there is no need for any amends or tweaks to machine settings. Its versatility also lends itself for use with a vast range of applications. Of particular interest would be those communications that are likely to be given out and / or handled by multiple people. These could include hospitality laminated media, food and drink menus, corporate brochures, medical information from doctors, dentists and hospitals through to business cards and more.
While we are in these uncertain times there are no guarantees; however the film has been lab tested for Esherichia Coli (E Coli) and Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). As a result, it has been proven to reduce bacterial levels ≥ 99% and it also conforms to ISO 22196. This is the recognised industry measurement of anti-bacterial activity on plastics and other non-porous surfaces.
As Sandro Mosquera, Managing Director of Graphic Image Films highlights, “Unfortunately in the climate we now find ourselves we need to take as many precautions as we can. Any product like this one, which offers some protection against killing bacteria, has to be a good thing. So as exclusive distributors, we’re understandably delighted to be bringing this industry leading lamination film to the UK. This sits well with us also now supplying PPE to help many of our customers. ”
