Why choose SteriTouch?

There are other antimicrobial options, so why should you choose us?

You can trust us to understand your materials and processes

Many companies in our sector focus on marketing, but have no real understanding of the materials their customers are working with. Our team has over 150 years experience of injection moulding & extruding plastics, formulating resin systems and developing specialist solutions.

We only use active substances with solid regulatory support

The regulations for biocides in UK, Europe and the USA are strict and compliance is essential. The active substances we use are all well supported, including EU BPR, UK BPR, EPA, FDA and EFSA.

No minimum annual commitments, no stocking orders, no onerous contracts

We like to make it as easy as possible, irrespective of the amount of material you need. You’ll never be obliged to buy any more than you need and we won’t turn you away because you, or your project, is too small.

SteriTouch is a meaningful, established brand, with no licensing fees

The SteriTouch trademark is the perfect way to endorse the antimicrobial properties of your product. It is available to our customers without any licensing fee.

Our products are developed and manufactured in-house, by us

All our masterbatches are conceived, developed and manufactured at our facility. They are not another company’s product relabelled, or something developed and made by a third party. We know them intimately because we make them. This also means we can change them. With our in-house capabilities we can formulate and manufacture an entirely masterbatch, run material trials and conduct physical testing (tensile, impact etc), all in just a few hours.
