Kernow Coatings is in the process of introducing a new antimicrobial product protection to its KernowPrint Pro for Dry Toner range.

The company says that KernowPrint Antimicrobial can be cleaned with soapy water, bleach or safely disinfected with a wide variety of alcohol and solvent based cleaning agents without removing or damaging the surface. It also reports that the technology used is proven to inhibit the growth of microbes by up to 99.94%, along with inhibiting the growth of common food-poisoning bacteria on treated surfaces.

‘We often overlook how many surfaces we come into contact with on a daily basis whilst carrying out normal tasks on autopilot,’ said Kernow North America president Bosy Colak. ‘If surfaces and counters are not properly cleaned or disinfected, bacteria can grow.

‘KernowPrint Antimicrobial is a hygienic, durable solution over standard synthetic or laminated papers and provides inbuilt antimicrobial product protection, giving 24/7 surface protection for the lifetime of the product. It has a wealth of applications, from military to medical, hospitality to retail and of course within the education sector. Reducing the risk of contaminants on a surface is now a prerequisite for every industry and business.’

Kernow Coatings is currently transitioning its KernowPrint PRO Matt White Dry Toner line to the new enhanced antimicrobial version which is available in a variety of stocked and bespoke sizes and in thicknesses ranging from 95 – 350 micron.
