A few years ago, Propyplast developed a PP CAST film for IML with the following antimicrobial
- Staphylococcus aureus (Gram +)
- Escherichia Coli (Gram -)
This film is called LMG® C ANTIMICROBIAL.
The development and proliferation of bacteria on the surface of the film are slowed down and the number of microbes and bacteria is strongly reduced and proven according to ISO 22196 :2011.
Recently, independent trials (ISO 21702 standard) using the E229 Human Corona virus (strain virus of Covid-19) have proven that this technology reduces the virus 5 times faster than on normal solid plastic surfaces.
Without any toxic substance nor migration, properties, transparency and recyclability of the film remain unchanged. Our film, complying with the 10/2011 (EU) Regulation, is adapted to direct contact for food applications. In addition, the absence of migration guarantees functionality over time. This virucidal and bactericide solution therefore offers an efficiency not only against adhesion and proliferation of bacteria, but also against viruses.
Tests were carried out with the Coronavirus E229 for the following reasons:
- Tests with the virus causing Covid-19 are prohibited for commercial laboratories
- The Coronavirus E229 presents great similarities with the SARS-CoV-2 virus responsible for
Thus, we can use our experience in the manufacture of our virucidal and bactericide IML film to develop similar solutions in other scopes of application where we can also offer an intrinsic resistance to bacteria, mould, fungi and viruses.
