PureSafe Antimicrobial Varnishes
PureSafe combines our usual high quality coatings and varnishes with Biomaster’s leading antimicrobial technology.
The end result is a product formulated for excellent adhesion and printability, with fast cure and high chemical resistance, independently tested to ISO 22196 standards (the measurement of antibacterial activity on plastics and other non-porous surfaces).
PureSafe UV flexo matt and gloss varnishes are both foil blockable and overprintable. These high-performance varnishes are suitable for non-direct food contact packaging applications and, with the addition of Biomaster, provide an effective antimicrobial finishing solution for the label printing sector.
PureSafe’s antimicrobial properties inhibit the growth of microorganisms on a printed surface and provide durable product protection against harmful bacteria, fungi, and moulds.
Biomaster technology utilises silver ion technology which provides a release of silver ions on demand, safely inhibiting microbial growth. The incorporation of Biomaster guarantees fast, effective antimicrobial protection for the lifetime of the label or package, keeping the printed surface hygienic and reducing the risk of cross-contamination.
At a time when scrutiny of packaging hygiene is only increasing, PureSafe answers many market demands at a stroke.
PureSafe is currently only available to label printers located in England, Scotland and Wales. It provides fast, effective antimicrobial protection for the lifetime of the label or package
