ANTIBACTERIAL PRINTING

One of our more recent add-on printing features is our specially formulated PrintProtect antibacterial (anti-microbial) coating.

This is a clear, neutral coating that will have no visual or quality impact on your printing but will prevent the printed surface from harbouring bacteria that can be passed on by touch. This antibacterial coating is proven to remove up to 99.9% of bacteria and microbes.

Our antibacterial printing is active for the lifetime of the coating which eliminates the risk of cross-contamination of thousands of bacteria strains.

This coating is very popular for health, medical, catering and hospitality sectors; uses include for airline/travel magazines that are regularly handled and for information leaflets.

If you choose to use antibacterial printing, you can use the SafePrint logo to prove to your audience that you take a responsible approach to your marketing campaigns.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What exactly is antibacterial printing?

Antibacterial coatings are standard emulsion coatings (which we use in most of our printing anyway) with additional antimicrobial agents. As these agents are active, the coating offers the same protection for life. You can see similar coatings on plastic with Microban technology, which uses a similar principle.

As the additive is transparent, it doesn’t affect the opacity of the print coating and therefore it looks just like any other!

What are the advantages of antibacterial printing?

  • The antibacterial coating will prevent the growth and reproduction of bacteria and fungi, effectively killing it and preventing cross-contamination.
  • This protection lasts for the lifetime of the coating/printing.
  • 100% safe product for contact with humans, animals and food.
  • Successfully tested on organisms such as MRSA, E.coli and Salmonella, to ISO 22196 standard.
  • Allows you use of our PrintProtect logo on your printed materials.
  • Has no impact on recycling properties of printed media.

Does antibacterial printing cost more?

There is a very small difference in cost, depending on quantity. During the coronavirus response period we’ll be offering this antibacterial coating at cost to our customers.

Can antibacterial printing be recycled?

Yes! This coating contains natural ingredients and is suitable for recycling.

Is antibacterial printing suitable for litho and digital?

At the moment it is only available for the litho printing process.

How do I order antibacterial printing?

Simply mention that you’d like antibacterial coating when contacting us for a quote or to place an order and we’ll do the rest! We can supply our PrintProtect logo in multiple formats for your designers.
