UK manufactured bins with antimicrobial protection
Leafield Environmental are pleased to announce that an antimicrobial protection can be added to their internal and external bins to inhibit the growth of microbes by up to 99.9%*.
Leafield Environmental joined forces with Biomaster, the recognised leader of antimicrobial technology for polymers in 2015 when they launched a new bin designed for the health sector. Following its successful launch many customers across different sectors have been ordering their bins with the antimicrobial additive.
The Biomaster antimicrobial additive is added during Leafield’s manufacturing process and is dispersed throughout the entire bin. It is durable, it will not wash off and will last its active lifetime. Tested on over 50 different bacteria species in over 2,000 applications. It has been proven to remove over 80% of bacteria in as little as 15 minutes.
The active ingredient in the Biomaster antimicrobial technology is Silver which provides an antimicrobial protection without allowing bacteria to develop resistance.
*Tested by Europe’s top independent microbiology laboratories to ISO 22196:2011.
