Anti-Bacterial Technology

Preventing the spread of bacteria such as that causing MRSA is very important.  Our products are treated with a unique anti-bacterial technology.  The active ingredient is the element silver in the form of silver ions.  Silver is a natural antimicrobial, which has been used for many centuries for its abilities to aid in preservation, especially in water systems.  Silver is also currently used in the healthcare sector in silver coated catheters and wound dressings.

The silver ions are added to materials at the manufacturing stage. This results in an active concentration of silver ions on the surface of the product.  The silver ions cause functions in the bacteria to break down. This results in the bacteria being unable to reproduce and therefore inhibits bacterial growth.

Extensive independent testing has been carried out on a wide range of bacteria including MRSA and E.coli.  Products have been tested for the simulated life of the product / material with no significant reduction in the antimicrobial performance noted; therefore the silver ions are effective for the life of the product.  For detailed scientific test results click here.

With so many people handling these folders every day, incorporating anti-bacterial technology in our products is essential in the fight against hospital acquired infections such as MRSA.
