Vivid Laminating Technologies has introduced Boss Bloc film which - using a formula based around silver ion technology - is said to eliminate 99% of bacteria.
Within the Boss Bloc range, there is OPP film, available in matt and gloss, and a wide-format pressure-sensitive film in matt.
Manufactured in Europe, it is tested and verified by ISO, and Vivid said it has been proven to be effective against antibiotic-resistant bacteria such as Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA).
Vivid MD Martin Evans said: “It’s something we’ve been putting research and development into for a while. With an extended effort over the last few months. We’re aware that many of our customers serve sectors such as leisure, hospitality, health and education which will benefit greatly from an anti-bacterial laminating film. Now more than ever, we need to be conscious of hygiene and protecting ourselves as well as everyone around us, Boss Bloc can be a great contributor to that”.
