InviroShield™ Antimicrobial Surface Protection Film by Athens Paper

What is InviroShield™?

InviroShieldTM is one of the most innovative and scientifically advanced surface protection films ever to be introduced to the Graphic Arts Industry. InviroShieldTM is an adhesive-backed polyester film with an antimicrobial topcoat engineered to inhibit the growth of microbes. The “active ingredient” in the coating is ionized silver in a zeolite carrier that starts to neutralize bacteria, mold, mildew, and viruses on contact. The technology built into the coating allows it to retain its “bio-availability” for a relatively long period of time. In addition, the special nature of the coating technology used to encapsulate the silver zeolite formula allows it to be accessible to, and activated by the moisture from your hands so it can effectively inhibit the spread of microbes that find their way onto its surface.

A 1.0-mil gloss clear polyester over-laminate with a permanent adhesive. The face film incorporates antimicrobial technology into the topcoat to resist growth of microorganisms on its surface for long lasting performance. The antimicrobial technology contains silver in a zeolite carrier which fights the growth of microbes through the disruption of cell metabolism, inhibiting cell division and prevention of respiration. It can be washed with mild detergents without losing efficacy. Non- toxic and non-harmful to human skin.
