G-Tec continues Covid-19 fight with Touchshield

G-Tec Paper & Film has revealed details of a new development that could prove to be a major boost in the battle to combat the spread of novel coronavirus (Covid-19).

The new anti-microbial film range includes an easy-apply air release system

Touchshield, its unique new range of anti-microbial protective film products, has been awarded up to 93.41% protection against viruses in accordance with ISO 21702.

The UK-based media manufacturer has been working toward the certification since May, refining the unique formulation to meet the ISO standard. ISO 21702 measures antiviral activity on plastics and other non-porous surfaces of anti-viral treated products.

TouchShield WPVC70 was measured against an enveloped viral strain, and as Covid-19 is identified as an envelope virus, this is seen as a major development for G-Tec and in the ongoing fight against the virus.

Andrew Gartshore, director and head of research and development and G-Tec, comments: “We wanted to produce an anti-microbial range of film products that would be accessible and easy-to-apply to everyday objects.

“Our anti-microbial coating offers up to 99% protection against bacteria and viruses. This tough, germ-fighting, top-coating, partnered with over 35 years of product development experience within the self-adhesive film sector delivers a totally unique range of products for the consumer.”
