Drytac (Bristol, UK) has announced the global launch of Protac AMP Film with Microban antimicrobial technology – a new product designed to help protect surfaces from microbes that can cause premature product degradation. When bacteria contaminate a surface such as a door or touchpad (as a result of human contact, environmental conditions or simply a lack of cleaning) they can multiply quickly. Similarly, fungi and mold can proliferate on a surface. Regular cleaning with an effective detergent will remove these microorganisms. Drytac’s Protac AMP Film can help maintain cleanliness in between these cleanings. It offers reliable protection from the growth of stains and odour-causing bacteria and mold.
This 150μ (6 mil) self-adhesive polyester surface protection film incorporates Microban technology at the manufacturing stage – so it becomes part of the material’s intrinsic physical structure at a molecular level and will not wash off or wear away. Microban reservoirs in the film disrupt the microbes’ cell walls, inhibiting their growth. The film provides protection 24 hours a day for up to 15 years, and is durable enough to withstand regular cleaning. Protac AMP Film is ideal for protecting doors, keypads, counters, tables and any other flat surfaces. It’s transparent with a hard top coat and provides scratch resistance and chemical resistance. Every batch of Protac AMP is tested for antimicrobial performance “providing the utmost confidence and peace of mind for any application,” said Drytac.
“Our new Protac AMP Antimicrobial Film with Microban technology delivers protection in one easy-to-use product,” said Shaun Holdom, Global Product Manager at Drytac. “It’s prepared with Drytac’s innovative adhesive, so users can simply apply the film to the surface and leave it to do its job – helping reduce growth of microbes on the surface for many years. Protac AMP Film has already been used on drinks machines, tray tables on aircraft, and in healthcare facilities and schools, with literally hundreds of other potential applications. This product can help maintain the highest standards of cleanliness.” Drytac Canada is located in Brampton, Ontario.
