A Poynton-based print firm is providing as many customers as possible with antimicrobial print and protected paper products to play their part in helping protect businesses and prevent the spread of infections.

Print business from Poynton invests in coating to prevent infection

"All businesses work with printed products so if we can add another layer of protection to all the hygiene and safety measures coming from Government we will do so."
Matt Galloway

Galloways, which celebrates 150 years in business this year, is working with Addmaster (UK), a global leader in the supply of premium quality additives for the plastic, paper, textile, paint and coatings industry, on ramping up the application of its Biomaster antimicrobial technology.

Biomaster protected paper and board provides effective, lasting antimicrobial protection, reducing the risk of cross-contamination and preventing bacterial build-up in storage.

When bacteria come into contact with a Biomaster protected surface, the silver-ion technology prevents it growing, producing energy or replicating – in essence preventing the growth of bacteria and lasting for the lifetime of the product.

Director Matt Galloway explains: “Paper is inherently difficult to clean, which makes it a perfect breeding ground for pathogens and a potential source of cross-contamination. Anything from patient files and folders to food packaging and wallcoverings are possible transmission points for harmful microbes.

“In these challenging times, we are all looking to do everything we can to reduce the spread of infection to protect ourselves and others and broadening its availability to all sectors. We have had a number of enquiries already, including from a company looking at protecting workstations with protective paper coverings so that staff can hot desk safely.”

Addmaster spokesperson Karl Shaw said: “The technology behind Biomaster makes it an effective second line of defence against the proliferation of harmful microbes. In many environments and industries limiting bacteria is absolutely vital and we have the ability to help with that.”

Matt again: “All businesses work with printed products so if we can add another layer of protection to all the hygiene and safety measures coming from Government we will do so.  It’s important to use all the technology available to make workplaces as safe as possible as businesses to return with confidence.”
