Antimicrobial Additives for Paper & Board

Any material that is difficult to clean provides an ideal opportunity for microbes such as bacteria to thrive and survive. Therefore, there can be no better application for antimicrobial technology than paper.

Antimicrobial Additives for Paper & Cardboard are specific actives that can be introduced to paper during the manufacturing process to provide lasting protection from microbes. An additive will encompass a specific antimicrobial active, such as silver, and can be formulated to suit the type of paper, the manufacturing process employed and the desired end-use of your product.
