Antimicrobial Decorative Laminates by Maica

Established in 1968 in Malaysia, Maica is the pioneer in the manufacturing of high pressure and compact laminates in South East Asia. Just celebrated its 50th Golden Anniversary in September 2018, Maica remains passionate to be the most preferred and reliable laminate manufacturer in the world. It first obtained its ISO 9001:1994 in 1995 and has continually improved its manufacturing system and successfully converted to the latest ISO 9001: 2015 in 2018.

Maica’s products (known as maiProducts), particularly, maiLaminate or maiCompact, are tested for Anti-bacterial and Anti-fungi, thanks to the BioCote’s silver-ion additives.

It provides antimicrobial protection that reduces microbial activity on its decorative laminate products. Therefore, maiProducts are safe for use in environments that require antimicrobial protection, especially, hospitals, medical laboratories, schools and food preparation sectors.

maiProducts are responsibly manufactured in compliance with the internationally recognised European Standard for the manufacturing of high pressure laminates, EN438 standard, to deliver high quality assurance. maiProducts are suitable for use in indoor offices and residential environments. Furthermore, they are certified for GREENGUARD (for low chemical emissions), GREENGUARD GOLD (suitable for children and elderly folks), Singapore Green Label (for ‘made from sustainable materials’) and has obtained the Certificate of Compliance by ISEGA Laboratories for food contact safety. Other key product qualities are maiTermite Resistance and maiAnti-Scuffing.

maiProducts are now exported worldwide. They are well received in countries such as Japan, Australia, New Zealand, the European Continent, the Middle East, and most of the countries in South East Asia because of the superior product quality they offer.

What our partners say

  • Having now worked together for over 10 years we know each other well, our relationship continues to flourish on a foundation of trust, understanding and mutual respect. Like any relationship it has developed and improved over time but it is these qualities that have seen BioCote become a partner in the truest sense of the word.

  • We launched our antimicrobial chair range initially to add a genuine USP to our customers, but quickly extended our ranges into tables and storage units. Our products are primarily used in schools where children's immune system has not quite developed fully, so our antimicrobial range not only benefits the pupils, but also the school, too. The expertise and advice given is streets ahead of the other antimicrobial companies that we contacted, plus we especially liked the excellent marketing support and documentation available via the partner portal.

  • We chose BioCote because we wanted the security of working with a company that would do more than simply sell us an additive or give us an unrecognisable trademark to co-brand our product. BioCote made our entrance into the antimicrobial market easy. They seamlessly integrated themselves into our business and have done so ever since, ensuring we have always operated with maximum confidence.
