What is Antimicrobial Film?
Our Antimicrobial film is composed of transparent cast polymeric PVC of 60 microns, containing antimicrobial agents, coated with a pressure-sensitive acrylic adhesive This is intended for antimicrobial protection of surfaces in areas that require a high degree of hygiene (public areas, agri-food, wet rooms, hospitals, etc.).
During cleaning operations, as well as in the presence of humidity, silver ions are released from the top layer of the film. These ions come into contact with the bacteria blocking their metabolism and interrupting their proliferation mechanism, leading to their destruction.
The Film is a long term solution to reduce sick days and illnesses within the workplace long into the future. With the film relevant in killing sars, influenza, and bacteria . The film can reduce sick days long into the future and pay for itself multiple times over.
Designed to be easily replaced, Antimicrobial Films provide a virtually invisible barrier that protects flat surfaces from permanent damage. They also feature proprietary silver ion technology, which is applied during the manufacturing process of these films.
Silver’s scientifically proven antimicrobial properties protect these films from the negative effects of microbes by inhibiting their growth on the protected film’s surface. With a long history of success as an antimicrobial, silver is one of the most widely used technologies in the world.
Antimicrobial Films reduces microbial activity the moment microbes come in contact with the surface, protecting the film from odor and stain causing microbes to keep it cleaner and fresher for longer.
Antimicrobial films offer a wide range of benefits to healthcare professionals and patients. An antimicrobial film can be easily applied to just about any surface in a hospital or clinic without being toxic to patients or causing damage to the environment. It is easy to stock and maintain, allowing facilities to spend more time and money caring for patients, instead of maintaining high levels of waste. The antimicrobial properties of antimicrobial film offers many benefits when easily used by healthcare professionals and patients.
What is an antimicrobial surface?
Bacteria, yeasts, and viruses are rapidly killed on metallic copper surfaces; the phenomenon is called “contact killing.” The antimicrobial properties of copper and silver have been known since ancient times. Copper can be used to make materials that kill and inhibit the growth of germs, including healthcare equipment. There are a lot of different reasons why bacteria, yeasts, and viruses decay on copper. It’s the most popular and most well-known natural antimicrobial surface on the planet.
Copper is used in health care settings to kill germs that can cause illness. The corrosion process itself is known as contact killing because the copper molecules literally touch the bacteria and viruses at the surface. It is often called rapid contact killing because bacteria die within just a few hours. As a result, copper and other metal alloys are popular additives in antimicrobial film products.
GET ANTI-MICROBIAL PROTECTION
Tests conducted by independent laboratories have proven that this specially-coated surface can offer lasting protection from bacteria, including common bacteria such as Staphylococcus aureus, E. Coli, etc. The advanced coating also contains antiviral technology which reduces the survivability of SARS-CoV-2 virus on glass surfaces in 24 hours. It is suitable for use in hygiene conscious environments where clean-ability, scratch resistance, and the transfer of microbes is a concern.
Anti- Microbial window film is an ultra thin antimicrobial coating on the surface. While the product feels smooth to the human skin, the surface is a nano-islands structure when superimposed. These nano-islands are a durable and stable coating that creates a hostile environment to the microbes and viruses.
Uses for antimicrobial films
The antimicrobial films can be applied to a wide variety of substrates and surfaces as long as the target surface is clean, dry, smooth, non-porous and free from any traces of oil, grease, wax, silicone or other contaminants.
This kind of film can be used on windows, glass doors, screens, display cases, and other flat surfaces. Places such as laboratories, hospitals, offices, schools, and other establishments where a virus could pose a threat to human life are perfect for antimicrobial films.
Like most kinds of films, these can come in transparent filters so as not to hinder visibility wherever it’s used. A more opaque tint can also be used to afford some privacy to certain rooms while offering protection that you need.
