Derprosa Antimicrobial: The laminating film proven effective against coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19)

Proven effectiveness against SARS-CoV-2: 84% after 24 hours

Derprosa Antimicrobial is the new designation of Derprosa Bacterstop film which has been widely considered the best film to prevent infection by bacteria for many years. Now, Taghleef Industries set out to verify its effectiveness for viruses by testing with different types of coronavirus. The laminating film was first tested with the feline coronavirus due to availability and capabilities of independent specialized laboratories. Finally, the film was recently tested with the human coronavirus SARS-CoV-2. In both trials, the performance of Derprosa Antimicrobial films has been outstanding.

Test results proved that Derprosa Antimicrobial inhibits proliferation and neutralizes the survival of bacteria and viruses on non-porous surfaces. It has been specifically tested by independent laboratories against the Methicillin-resistant bacteria Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA) and Escherichia Coli (E-Coli), the feline coronavirus (FCoV) and human coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2).

Therefore, Derprosa Gloss Antimicrobial and Derprosa Matte Antimicrobial are the best options to ensure the print integrity, provide a glossy or matte finish, and especially—protect those who come in contact with editorial, packaging, or commercial communication pieces in paper support.

These films provide the same properties, machinability, and technical performance as other traditional films including wet, thermal, and thermal digital lamination versions. Food contact approved (certified in Europe). The antimicrobial effect is long-lasting, odorless, harmless to humans, and totally safe.

Our antimicrobial technology is also available across other Taghleef Industries’ film ranges designed for label applications and flexible packaging. It is, without a doubt, a cross-cutting and versatile solution suitable for multiple applications that puts into practice one of the main advantages of Taghleef Group: the ability to widespread across different industries its most valuable innovations for customers, brands, and our society.

Nobody will tell how long this pandemic will still last but, at least, books, secondary packaging and any paper product laminated with Derprosa Antimicrobial will help prevent the spread of the Covid-19.
