Drytac Protac Antimicrobial has a thickness of 150µ (6 mil), a width of up to 1,200mm and a textured matte finish

Protac Antimicrobial is a clear film, composed of a textured polyester with a hard top-coat, with antimicrobial additives incorporated during the manufacturing process.

According to Drytac, these antimicrobial agents disrupt the microbial cell wall of bacteria and fungus, inhibiting growth for up to 15 years. The film can protect against MRSA, streptococcus, E. coli and salmonella, among other bacteria.

In addition, the film's chemistry provides scratch and chemical resistance, which Drytac says allows for daily cleaning without loss of effectiveness

Shaun Holdom, global product manager for Drytac, comments: “Protac Antimicrobial is ideal for preventing the growth and spread of bacteria from touch surfaces.

“Its applications in environments such as hospitals and health centres are practically limitless, with many more potential sites in retail, education, transport and hospitality.

“For anyone with concerns about hygiene and contamination, this innovative product can help.”
