Biomaster provides an easy solution for incorporating antimicrobial protection to paper, pulp and cardboard.

For coated, uncoated and size press treatments, Biomaster helps to protect commonly handled paper products from harmful microbes in hygiene critical environments where reducing the risk of cross-contamination is key.


Antimicrobial protection for paper & board

Providing powerful, long-lasting product protection, Biomaster antimicrobial technology is suitable for a wide range of paper, pulp and cardboards for an array of applications.

Biomaster antimicrobial additives provide long-lasting and effective product protection against harmful bacteria, biofilm, fungi and mould for the lifetime of the end product without affecting its structural and physical qualities.

We’ll work closely with you to ensure that you get the right antimicrobial additive technology for your exact needs, taking into account the application of your paper or cardboard, the type of material used and your production process.


Antimicrobial protection for paper

In hygiene critical situations, every step possible should be taken to reduce cross-contamination, particularly as studies have shown that bacteria such as MRSA can survive on paper for up to 38 weeks.

This means that materials as innocuous as patient files, folders and wall mounted posters can become potential transmission points for harmful bacteria to spread.

Biomaster is easily added either during the manufacture of any uncoated paper, or by size press treatment to any coated paper or board (including xerographic paper, file folders, packaging and carbonless paper) to provide effective and lasting antimicrobial paper protection.

Antimicrobial protection for cardboard

Preparing food hygienically can be a crucial way of reducing your risk of catching an unpleasant food poisoning illness as bacteria can be transferred easily around the kitchen from chopping boards, utensils and even contaminated packaging.

Biomaster has been implemented into the outer layer of a range of cling film, baking foil and parchment paper dispensers constructed from cardboard to help reduce the risk of foodbourne pathogens being spread as you prepare food.

The application has become so successful that leading supermarket chain Asda now stock the Biomaster protected dispensers for their own-brand product lines.

How Biomaster works

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.
