A sustainable solution to make high-contact surfaces low risk situations

What is SafeTouch by OMM?

SafeTouch is an antimicrobial coating that provides protection on the surface of paper/cardboard products by reducing harmful microbes. The coating utilises the latest silver technology proven to eliminate bacteria and viruses. 

How does it protect your customers?

When microbes come into contact with OMM’s SafeTouch protected surface, the active antimicrobial agents disrupts the growth of microbes, stopping the cell from producing energy, inhibiting any further growth, and ultimately they die.

What is Antimicrobial?

An antimicrobial is a substance that will destroy the presence of microbes such as viruses, bacteria, protozoa, and mould. It differs from the term antibacterial that we see more frequently as that specifically prevents the growth of bacteria only. 

Why Not Just Disinfect?

Disinfectants can be a good idea to kill bacteria and viruses, but they won’t work all day. Disinfectants is only effective up to 2 hours, while our antimicrobial agents work for 24 hours everyday! In addition, over use of disinfectant can cause damage to finished surfaces 


Yes, SafeTouch is Effective

SafeTouch coated products have been proven to reduce the growth of bacteria such as E.Coli, Salmonella and Staphylococcaceae up to 99.99% and works 24 hours a day, every day.

Feel Protected, Worry Less

With the emergence of COVID-19 in today’s world, people are becoming more cautious about where they go and what they touch to prevent transmission of the virus. A new normal that shifts consumer’s attitudes and behaviors has been formed. This includes disinfecting groceries and delivery boxes, leaving parcels under the sunlight for hours, and wearing gloves to protect your hands from touching surfaces that might be contaminated.

For most of us, we learned that the risk of disease transmission from surfaces is there, but it took a global pandemic for companies and consumers to realize the vulnerabilities of high touch surfaces, specifically packaging. Just because our naked eyes couldn’t see, doesn’t mean it isn’t there! 

While this coating should not change consumers’ habit of practicing good hygiene, it essentially provides an additional protective layer of protection to consumers for a lifetime!
