Vivid Laminating Technologies has announced the introduction of Boss Bloc. An anti-bacterial addition to its range of Boss laminating films.
Boss Bloc is an OPP film, available in matt and gloss. OPP stands for Oriented Polypropylene film. It is a widely used material in food packaging, flower wrapping and for labels.
Using a formula based around silver ion technology, Boss Bloc eliminates 99% of bacteria and is the perfect product for stopping the growth of bacteria on print. Another benefit is its durability and is designed to last the lifetime of the product it is added. Therefore, you do not need to frequently replace the film for continued anti-bacterial protection. All you need to do is clean it as you usually would.
Martin Evans, Vivid’s managing director says: “We’re aware that many of our customers serve sectors such as leisure, hospitality, health and education which will benefit greatly from an anti-bacterial laminating film. Now more than ever, we need to be conscious of hygiene and protecting ourselves as well as everyone around us, Boss Bloc can be a great contributor to that.”
Manufactured in Europe as well as tested and verified by ISO, you can rest assured that Boss Bloc does what is promised. It has been proven to be effective against antibiotic-resistant bacteria such as Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). Therefore, the scientific consensus is that it will work against other bacteria in the same way.
