Protect Your Print with Our Antimicrobial Coating
We offer a diverse range of different finishes, but one we think deserves a little more spotlight is our unique all-star coating XtraProtect.
XtraProtect is a true all-rounder, ensuring products stay hygienic, durable and long-lasting thanks to its scratch-resistant antimicrobial coating that kills 99.9% of bacteria. It’s ideal for products that will be seeing frequent handling, particularly in retail, operational or public spaces.
We create and apply XtraProtect in-house, with no extra costs and no additional lead times, so it’s no surprise it’s a hit with our clients.
How Does XtraProtect Work?
XtraProtect provides continuous antimicrobial surface protection by binding to the cell wall, which disrupts the bacterial growth. The XtraProtect ions then interfere with enzyme production, stopping the cell from producing more energy.
Bacteria are prevented from replicating by XtraProtect interrupting the cell’s DNA. Without the option to grow, replicate and produce energy, the bacteria is unable to survive, leading to a 99.9% elimination.
We’ve designed XtraProtect to be completely invisible to the human eye, with no effect to the appearance of the product, and it’s completely compatible with all of our recyclable grades.
