Southside Print are pleased to announce ‘SafeLam’, our new, antimicrobial lamination for printed products. It’s just like standard lamination, except it kills bacteria and viruses on contact. This is obviously very timely and will be a massive boon to those who need printed sales, marketing or informational literature while coronavirus is still at large.
“SafeLam makes sharing printed documents safer”
Southside Print is committed to keeping staff and customers as safe as possible during these unprecedented times. As part of the fight against COVID-19, we have been working hard to find ways to make printed products as safe as possible in view of the pandemic. SafeLam’s antimicrobial coating does exactly that, killing 99% of bacteria and viruses that come into contact with it. It means printed products laminated with SafeLam proactively kill the coronavirus — and that’s a game-changer!
- The antimicrobial laminate is available in a matt or gloss finish.
- It eliminates 99% of harmful microorganisms that come into contact with it.
- It has the same, high quality finish as standard lamination.
- Just like ordinary lamination, SafeLam looks great and protects documents from wear and tear as well as from moisture ingress.
- No matter how many hands touch the surface, SafeLam’s surface retains its antimicrobial properties.
- It’s independently tested and approved to ISO 22196, an international benchmark that recognises SafeLam’s antimicrobial properties (more about that below).
SafeLam makes printed documents safer
SafeLam is an ideal finish for printed documents, particularly those used in schools, hospitals, healthcare organisations, restaurants, bars & workplaces. For example, it makes brochures, school books, folders and medical documents much safer to handle and to share. It’s also incredibly useful as a protective, anti-virus coating for things like printed menus in bars and restaurants where multiple people will handle the same printed item. Here are just a few examples of printed items that are safer when laminated with SafeLam antimicrobial laminate — the possible applications are almost endless!
- Brochures & booklets
- Annual Reports
- Medical documents
- Documents for schools & uni’s
- Business cards
- Tent cards
- Table talkers
- Manuals & bound documents
- Point of sale graphics
- Signage & display graphics
- Exhibition graphics
- Greetings cards
- Calendar covers
- … And much more.
About ISO 22196 accreditation
To quote ISO, the International Organisation for Standardisation:
“ISO 22196:2011 specifies a method of evaluating the antibacterial activity of antibacterial-treated plastics, and other non-porous, surfaces of products”
It’s accepted that the ISO 22196 accreditation confirms the ability of plastics to kill microorganisms and also to inhibit their growth over time. They therefore keep surfaces hygienically clean, safe and sanitary without the need to keep wiping the surfaces with agents and chemicals.
Antimicrobial means that it kills all microbes, including bacteria and viruses. That’s not only hygienic, but also incredibly important for people’s health and wellbeing while coronavirus and COVID-19 are still present within parts the population.
