 Anti-microbial might
JET Technologies’ new anti-microbial protective film can be used for various print and packaging applications, including the outer layers of food packaging.
The film is effective for 10 years, regardless of how many people come into contact with the product.
The SteriLam film is a safe film based on Silver-ion technology, which is the invisible and odourless ingredient, Biomaster.
According to Jet Technologies, it can inhibit
the growth of microbes by up
to 99.9 per cent, and can provide a barrier against bacteria, fungi, and moulds including antibiotic-resistant bacteria such as Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and Vancomycin-resistant
Enterococcus (VRE).
Sterifilm is durable and does
not wear off or leach out. Jet Technologies director
Jack Malki says the films can
be used in a wide range of applications, with greatest benefit in areas where people may be more susceptible to bacteria, including high traffic locations such as supermarkets.
“Now more than ever before, the cleanliness of products, equipment and the things we commonly come into contact with at work and at home is at the forefront of peoples’ minds,” Malki says.
“While SteriLam is not suitable for direct food contact, it can be used in indirect food contact applications, making
it suitable for outer layers of food packaging.”
used in SteriLam is tested to ISO standards and ongoing quality control tests and environmental trials are being undertaken.
It is also compatible with a product’srecyclability. ✷
