Antimicrobial Plastics

Solutions for injection moulded, extruded & rotationally moulded polymers

From commodity materials including polyethylene and polypropylene to engineering polymers such as polyamide, PC/ABS & polysulphone, we have masterbatches suitable for most plastics. Even if we have never worked with your material before, our in-house capabilities mean we can formulate a new masterbatch.

Whether you are injection or compression moulding, extruding or calendaring, our additives & masterbatches require no changes to your manufacturing process and provide excellent protection against bacteria, biofilm, fungi and mould.
