Aqua-Tech (55 Series) Anti-Microbial Emulsions

It has never been more apparent to everyone that printed surfaces can carry bacteria that is damaging to health. Shopping whilst wearing gloves, thinking twice before picking up a box, questioning where the parcel, magazine or envelope has been and what may be on there, is fast becoming a normal daily experience......

IPT have developed a range of anti-microbial coatings; Aqua-Tech Anti-Microbial Emulsions are designed to provide a “safe-to-touch” surface, offering a broad spectrum of activity covering gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria, fungi and viruses.

The coating and additive combinations are designed for the lifetime of the printed work to provide an invisible protection to the printed surface, meaning it can be handled multiple times and microbes of various types will be effectively killed by the protective additive, thus avoiding passing on to other subsequent handlers of the packaging and reducing transmission of microbes between people.

The active substance has a micron size of less than ≤ 5µm and contains a glass carrier which releases silver ions in a controlled manner via an ion exchange mechanism to achieve an antimicrobial effect.

This range of antimicrobial emulsions, which are all formulated using our Low Migration range of coatings, will be available from late April. They are designed for various packaging types, formulated to high end specifications for pharmaceuticals and food packaging, but may also encompass toy packaging and menus amongst many other possibilities:

Aqua-Tech (55 Series) - Anti-Microbial Matt Emulsion

Aqua-Tech (55 Series) - Anti-Microbial Silk Emulsion

Aqua-Tech (55 Series) - Anti-Microbial Neutral Emulsion

Aqua-Tech (55 Series) - Anti-Microbial DS Gloss Emulsion

Aqua-Tech (55 Series) - Anti-Microbial SS High Gloss Emulsion
