Galloways ramps up antimicrobial print offer

A Poynton-based print firm is providing as many customers as possible with antimicrobial print and protected paper products to play their part in creating a more hygienic business environment.

Galloways, which celebrates 150 years in business this year, is ramping up their application of Biomaster antimicrobial technology.

Biomaster protected paper and board provides effective, lasting antimicrobial protection, reducing the risk of cross-contamination and preventing bacterial build-up in storage.

When bacteria come into contact with a Biomaster protected surface, the silver-ion technology prevents it growing, producing energy or replicating – in essence preventing the growth of bacteria and lasting for the lifetime of the product.

Matt Galloway explains: “Paper is a potential source of cross-contamination. Anything from patient files and folders to food packaging and wallcoverings are possible transmission points for harmful microbes. In these challenging times, we are all looking to do everything we can reduce the spread of infection to protect ourselves and others and broadening its availability to all sectors.

We have had a number of enquiries already, including one from a company looking at protecting workstations with protective paper coverings so that staff can hot desk safely.

All businesses work with printed products so if we can add another layer of protection to all the hygiene and safety measures coming from Government we will do so. It’s important to use all the technology available to make workplaces as safe as possible as businesses to return with confidence.”
