Controlling the growth of microorganisms for lasting surface protection

Formica’s Protec+™ laminate was created following an increased awareness of the problems microbes can cause for a product, namely foul odours, irreversible staining and premature material degradation or failure. Protec+™ incorporates BioCote® to provide a high performance, premium laminate with an additional feature of antimicrobial surface protection. Protec+™ is used in a wide variety of environments including healthcare, leisure, food and catering, and education.

Introducing the Formica® Laminate Antimicrobial Collection

The fruitful partnership between Formica and BioCote® has further expanded in autumn 2021 to introduce a curated collection of antimicrobial laminates available in 20 highly usable colours and patterns. These surfaces were developed to work in conjunction with regular cleaning practices to protect against the negative effects of microbes, such as bacteria, fungi and mould.

Where good hygiene practices are of paramount importance, BioCote® can help. The antimicrobial technology reduces up to 99.99% of microbes on a protected surface, is invisible to the naked eye, and lasts for the lifetime of the product. Working alongside existing cleaning practices, BioCote® is the perfect solution to any hygiene needs.

*BioCote® technology is built into products to inhibit the growth of microorganisms that may affect Formica products. The antimicrobial properties do not protect users or others against bacteria, viruses, germs, or other disease organisms. This technology is not a substitute for good cleaning practises.
