SPANDEX PRESENTS ITS NEW ANTIMICROBIAL FILM
IMAGEPERFECT™ SAFETOUCH – HIGHLY EFFECTIVE PROTECTIVE LAMINATE
The exhibitor during the last editions of C!Print, SPANDEX, presents its new transparent film of 80 microns, available in glossy and matt finishes. The film incorporates the highly effective antimicrobial agent zinc pyrithione and offers over 99.99% proven protection against the growth of a variety of common bacteria, fungi and parasites.
The film incorporates the highly effective antimicrobial agent zinc pyrithione, which inhibits the growth of micro-organisms such as bacteria, fungi and parasites on the surface. The active agent works by depriving microbes of the conditions they need to survive and spread. The film delivers over 99.99% proven protection against growth of specific microbes, guaranteed for 3 years.
HOW IS THE PROTECTION APPLIED TO THE FILM?
The ultra-effective antimicrobial agent is encapsulated within the structure of the film, rather than being applied as a coating. This preserves the protective properties against regular abrasive cleaning, delivering stable, long-lasting performance.
Thorough independent tests show that ImagePerfect SafeTouch is fully resistant to frequent cleaning with solvents such as 70.0% ethanol, 0.1% IPA and 5.0% benzalkonium chloride.
In addition, it offers superior removability with clean-peel properties and no adhesive transfer. This allows the surface to be easily restored to its original state after film removal.

Stefano Nigrone, Director of ImagePerfect™ at Spandex, explains: “ImagePerfect SafeTouch offers customers an excellent new option – a maximum level of antimicrobial protection, guaranteed for three years, with the application flexibility of a PVC material and a solvent-based adhesive, at a competitive price. In addition, this will help more companies to protect their staff and customers by adding bacterial protection to a variety of surfaces, at a time when public sensitivity to hygiene has never been so high.
ImagePerfect SafeTouch has been independently tested by 3A Laboratori (UNI CEI EN ISO / IEC 17025 accredited and UNI EN ISO 9001 certified). The product will be available in stock from July 2020.
