Biomaster Antimicrobial Additive technology offers protection against the dangers you can't see.
Easily incorporated into any plastic, textile, paper, paint or coating, it becomes an integral part of the manufacturing process and finished product.
Biomaster ensures effective antimicrobial protection for the effective lifetime of the product, helping to keep surfaces clean and hygienic, and reduces the threat of cross-contamination.
In order to guarantee optimum performance, Biomaster takes a bespoke approach to every project. Each formulation is uniquely blended to suit a specific end application, with its effectiveness confirmed by independent laboratories before it enters the production process.
Biomaster pioneered the development of permanent antibacterial protection into new substrates such as plastics, coatings, textiles and paint and continues to create innovative additive technologies that provide long-term defence against harmful bacteria.

In situations where hygiene is critical, a surface with in-built Biomaster antimicrobial protection can inhibit the growth of harmful microbes - including bacteria, mould and fungi.
Bacteria will readily grow on unprotected surfaces, and even with regular cleaning microbes can be spread across a room from transmission by hands, contaminated equipment or dispersed through the air.
Disinfectant sprays and wipes are very effective at removing bacteria from a contaminated surface, however most people don’t realise that these products will only be effective for around 2 hours.
After this time has lapsed, any new bacteria landing on the surface will continue to grow.
Only Biomaster protected surfaces offer 24/7, round-the-clock protection against the growth of bacteria for the lifetime of the product.
Practicing good hygiene in food manufacture environments can not only save companies from expensive recalls due to contaminated food, but it can be crucial to reducing the risk of outbreaks that might affect vulnerable members of the public.
Biomaster has been tested and proven to be extremely effective against Listeria monocytogenes, commonly found in food preparation areas, and can be easily incorporated into preparation surfaces, chopping boards, footwear and pipework to reduce cross-contamination.
Hospitals, care homes and dental surgeries all have stringent procedures for managing hygiene to ensure that healthcare-associated infections, such as MRSA, are not spread across rooms and wards where vulnerable patients are susceptible to further illness.
In addition to cleaning and infection prevention protocols, Biomaster can form a key part in breaking the chain of infection and reducing the buildup of harmful organisms on patient bedframes, side tables, trunking and walls and floors.
Good hygiene starts at home, and preparing food hygienically can greatly reduce the risk of contracting a foodborne illness from bacteria such as Salmonella and E. coli.
Studies from the FSA have found that around 70% of supermarket chicken is contaminated with Campylobacter, the most common form of food poisoning in the UK, which is usually killed off through thorough cooking,
Preparation surfaces and chopping boards can harbour Campylobacter bacteria, which cannot survive on a Biomaster protected surface when combined with targeted cleaning and disinfectants.
Biomaster can be added at any stage of the manufacturing process and is available in masterbatch, liquid or powder formulations for plastics, textiles, paper and coatings.
When bacteria come into contact with a Biomaster protected surface, the active antimicrobial agent prevents them from growing, producing energy or replicating, inhibiting any further growth.
The controlled release of the active ingredient provides powerful, effective antimicrobial protection for the lifetime of the product.
Highly effective at low addition rates, Biomaster has been tested in hundreds of applications to provide up to 99.99% reduction against harmful bacteria.
