Ensure Safe and Hygienic Products using Antimicrobial Additive

In the last 2 years all of us have experienced & continue to experience emotions, thoughts and situations we have never experienced before. It is not that there were no pandemics earlier. But the pandemic of COVID-19 as understood is on a completely different scale, as it was not restricted to any particular area but emerged throughout the world and created global panic. As COVID-19 initially creeps in and subsequently spreads at a very rapid pace, it has been spreading from country to country and as per the scientists the spread is not only human to human but also from various surfaces to humans.

In today’s times it is a fact that disinfection has become a critical part of everyday lives; as we are surrounded by a multitude of bacteria, fungus, viruses & other microbes, as well as stories of new strains of those microbes, leading to serious illnesses and, in some cases, even death. Under ideal conditions, it is known that many types of bacteria can double itself every 20 minutes. Potentially, one bacteria on untreated surfaces can multiply to more than 30,000 in five hours and to more than 16 million in eight hours.

Understanding the importance of this issue, customers today are giving a higher valuation on products that addresses the issues related to microbial contamination. In the middle of the pandemic, surface disinfection has become critical and all product buying decisions are now given preferences based on hygiene as an important factor. Therefore, it is understood that antimicrobial Surfaces are not just the need of the hour but also the way forward.

It has also been understood that it is not always possible to disinfect or use strong chemicals on surfaces to prevent the growth of microbes therefore a permanent & 24*7 inherent Antimicrobial is required to keep the surfaces free from these decease causing microbes. An antimicrobial additive for plastics & polymers like our GermGuard enhances the performance of a surface by impregnating it with lasting antibacterial, anti-fungal and antiviral properties. This enables you to offer your finished products cleaner and more hygienic to use, giving them an instant competitive advantage.

Manufacturers of many reputed brands in the furniture, sanitary, flooring, paints, packaging, textiles, furnishing besides other industries have taken a conscious decision to incorporate Silver Ion based Antimicrobial Technology into their products, which ensures that the product has antiviral, antibacterial & antifungal properties, ensuring all contact surfaces safety from microbial contamination. These microbes can include a variety of organisms such as bacteria, mold, fungi, algae, and viruses. The result of using antimicrobial additives will not only ensure safer product surfaces but will also minimize degradation of the product due to microbes thereby extending the functional lifetime of the products.

Silver-ion based GermGuard is developed by the extensive R & D done by Prism Johnson Ltd and the R&D centre is recognized by the Department of Science & Industrial Research, Ministry of Science & Technology, Govt. of India.  Germguard is an active silver ion based multi-functional antimicrobial composite which when incorporated in any product or surface, inhibits and destroys the growth of deadly micro-organisms giving the end product a permanent antimicrobial activity. GermGuard can be used in all the plastic processing techniques like rotational, injection, blow, extrusion, etc. 

GermGuard has been tested at many leading microbiology laboratories, adhering to the strictest testing norms laid down as per International testing protocols.

Features of GermGuard :

*Highly Safe


*Control Release Mechanism

*Inorganic in Nature

*Reduce Odour
