Hygienic Protection against corona viruses
It is not just a topic in times of Corona and Flu, but to have hygienic protection against infection when we contact any surface is essential. Whether we are in the working environment, public areas or the private sector, on every contact surface pathogens are present; viruses, bacteria and fungi can survive unnoticed for such a long time. Simply by touching these infected surfaces, infection can quickly transfer to our face via our hands and into the body via numerous entry points. Transfer to other surfaces is inevitable. This is exactly where POLIFILM's antimicrobial film solutions come in.
Self-disinfection from POLIFILM
The newly developed antimicrobial films form an effective and safe protection against bacteria and viruses, including some of the corona strain whilst reducing the risk of infection through contaminated contact surfaces. These films provide long-lasting protection for up to one month and can then be simply replaced, sooner if heavily soiled or damaged.
How does it work?
A biocidal agent is added to the polyethylene (PE) based film formulation. This is distributed evenly over the outer layer of the film during the extrusion process to ensure comprehensive protection. When germs, bacteria and viruses comes into contact with the surface of the film, the colonisation of pathogens is inhibited. The active principle is based on metal ions that diffuse out of the film and render any pathogens that come into contact with the film surface harmless. This process is similar to the function of soap or disinfectants where the surface of the enveloped viruses is damaged, and the virus becomes inactive and is consequently destroyed.
Comprehensive protection with antimicrobial films
- Immediate protection.
- External laboratory tests confirm: 99.9% of the viruses on the film surface are destroyed after just one hour.
- Effective against viruses (including coronaviruses), bacteria & fungi.
- Harmless to humans & animals.
- 100% recyclable.
Antibacterial activity certified according to ISO 22196:2011. Measurable antibacterial activity on plastic and other non-porous surfaces.
Antiviral activity certified according to ISO 21702:2019. Measurable antiviral activity on plastic and other non-porous surfaces.
Advantages over conventional solutions such as disinfectants:
- Long-term efficacy. Protects 24 hours a day - 7 days a week (up to one month).
- Permanent preventative effect instead of subsequent cleaning effect.
- Cost-effective in the long term.
- Easy to apply and replaced in seconds.
