INX Antimicrobial coatings


With a strong focus on delivering the best products and industry know-how for their customers, INX has partnered with BioCote®* to create a new line of coatings designed for various product packaging applications. The INXShield line of coatings combine INX’s performance-proven coating solutions with BioCote’s antimicrobial* technology that acts to continually inhibit the growth of odour, staining and material degradation causing microbes on the treated coatings, further enhancing INX’s product portfolio to support the cleanliness of packaging.

As the only global antimicrobial additives provider to be certified by HACCP International, BioCote® additives have been formally verified as appropriate for manufacture into food contact surfaces. This means that the additives and quality processes have been assessed and certified by an independent third party.

BioCote® technology is recognised for its quality, traceability, and credibility. Independent antimicrobial testing ensures that protected materials are performing to the non-negotiable standards of products carrying the BioCote® trademark.
