GEL-ANTIBAC SafeTouch Self Adhesive Film
SafeTouch is a functional laminate with a matt surface finish and a high level of transparency that contains a highly-effective additive that offers protection from micro-organisms, such as bacteria, fungi and parasites. Whilst antimicrobial products typically incorporate silver agents, this product utilises zinc pyrithione as its active ingredient and it is encapsulated within the film rather than manifesting as a simple coating on top of the film. As such, the antimicrobial effect is stable and long-lasting. When tested independently, the antimicrobial properties were found to be completely unaffected when SafeTouch was fully immersed for 1 minute in 3 different solutions of 70.0% ethanol, 0.1% IPA and 5.0% benzalkonium chloride, before being cleaned and dried and then re-immersed for a further minute, with this cycle being repeated 50 times. In accordance with ISO 22196, the antimicrobial property of SafeTouch has been substantiated via extremely high levels of efficacy (higher than 99.99%) for killing a number of different bacteria. Please refer to "Additional Information" for more detail.
SafeTouch can be used on many different kinds of flat surface, including doors, desks, tables, counters, cupboards, shelves, windows and panels, and it can be used in a wide variety of environments, such as retail spaces, healthcare environments, educational facilities, public transport, lifestyle environments and event business locations.
