Muraspec Wallcoverings, one of the world’s leading manufacturers in wallcoverings, has launched a new antimicrobial coating which, when applied to wallcoverings, creates a surface that guarantees bacteria cannot survive.
Working with Addmaster’s branded Biomaster biocide means that Muraspec can make a significant contribution to improved infection control within healthcare, education and high traffic public environments.
Biomaster is incredibly durable, long lasting and highly active. When added, it is dispersed throughout the entire item and becomes an integral part of the product.
So how does it work?
When bacteria come into contact with a Biomaster protected wallcovering, the silver ions prevent them from growing, producing energy or replicating, therefore they die. Silver is inorganic and non-leaching which means that, unlike organic antimicrobial agents / technologies, it stays within the item to which it is added. The controlled release of the active ingredient provides maximum antibacterial protection, 24/7, for the lifetime of the product.
Launching at The Care Show 2018
As infection control is a very high priority within the Care sector, Muraspec decided to launch this new addition to its offering at The Care Show 2018, taking place at the NEC, Birmingham this week.
To date the majority of Muraspec wallcoverings have a biocide coating, which protects the products against moulds and fungi. This new Biomaster biocide coating actively ensures that harmful bacteria will also not be able to survive on their wallcoverings.
Initially being applied to Type 2, 20oz. vinyls; woven and non-woven, with the first ‘range’ being the Elan range, this coating can be applied to a broader range of products, as a ‘special’.
