Arjowiggins Group Ltd, the global manufacturer of famous brand names in paper, has launched an antimicrobial surface treatment for paper products with Biomaster technology. In independent testing to ISO 21702, the papers saw reduction in human Coronavirus in as little as just one hour. The new antimicrobial solution from Arjowiggins proactively inhibit the growth of harmful microbes for the intended lifetime of the product. The solution is added to paper products during manufacture to ensure particles are more concentrated at the surface of the paper. It then works to interrupt cell growth or deactivate microbes that come into contact with the surface of the product. Testing carried out by the paper manufacturer showed its new antimicrobial technology inhibited bacterial growth, including MRSA and E.coli, by up to 99% over a 24 hour period and a greater than 93% reduction in human Coronavirus, in just one hour.
