Antimicrobial Materials

Valumail’s new range of antimicrobial material is a major breakthrough within the medical and retail sector, protecting you with an antibacterial technology that actively reduces the presence of microbes that lead to the colonisation and spreading of bacteria. We can now give you an option to purchase our full range of bags across a range of colours using antimicrobial technology which actively reduces bacteria on the surfaces within 1 hour.

Colour Range – Blue, Red, Yellow, Green and Orange and Purple.

Valumail’s new antimicrobial range can be used for many different transport needs, the technology is suitable for all hospital environments including pharmacy, medical records, medical apparatus, documents, cash handling and anything that could pose a risk from being transmitted through contact.
Products protected by the antimicrobial technology are easier to keep hygienically clean

Antimicrobial protection for the expected lifetime of the product

Antimicrobial technology can help reduce the risk of bacterial/microbial cross-contamination

Tests performed on our products prove that the antimicrobial technology reduces bacteria by 99.5% after two hours and by 99.99% after 24 hours. In fact, it can significantly reduce microbes including MRSA and Ecoli within 15 minutes

What does Antimicrobial mean?


Pronunciation:

[an-tee-mahy-kroh-bee-uh l]

Medicine/Medical, Pharmacology

Antimicrobial is defined as something that can resist, inhibit and prevent the growth of microbes including bacteria and mould.

Valumail introduces active ingredients into the material during the manufacturing process, Once infused into the material, The antimicrobial additive will work continuously to make a product more hygienic, minimising the potential for cross-contamination and extending a product’s functional lifetime.
As the world becomes increasingly more hygiene-conscious, research has shown that 9 out of 10 consumers are now searching for products containing a proven and trusted antimicrobial technology. Antimicrobial additives work 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to reduce bacteria by up to 99.99%, reassuring end-users that their product is permanently protected and therefore less likely to harbour illness-causing bacteria. The technology’s ability to minimise microbial colonisation also reduces the potential for staining and unpleasant odours, meaning a protected product will stay fresher for longer and have an increased functional life cycle- offering a significant cost benefit to the consumer.

The antimicrobial additives will also never wear off or leak from the surface they are manufactured into, making them safe for use in a variety of products.
