What is an Antimicrobial Water-based Coating?

An antimicrobial is a substance that will destroy the presence of microbes such as bacteria, virus, fungi, and protozoa.

While a water-based coating that we supply is a layer of coating that most packages have to provide an appealing effect and protect the packaging.

Hence, an antimicrobial water-based coating essentially means a water-based coating suitable for paper/cardboard materials with an active antimicrobial purposes.

How does it work?

SafeTouch coating uses silver-ion technology, which is a natural antibacterial. This advanced technology eliminates the opportunity for microbes to convert nutrients into energy, thus inhibiting their ability to grow and colonize.

Why use Antimicrobial Coating?

The risk of disease transmission from surfaces is real, yet it took a global pandemic for us to realize the true vulnerabilities of high touch surfaces.

Your popcorn box and french fries packaging that you constantly come in contact with may not be as clean or bacteria-free as they seem. However, disinfecting them will risk having disinfectant chemicals contaminating the food.

OMM's Antimicrobial water-based coated packaging however will ensure 24/7 protection against those harmful microbes, providing consumers additional protection without jeopardising anything else.
