Formica Group Launches Protec+ Antimicrobial High Pressure laminates in Asia -- Available for Customization in 400 Varieties

Formica Group announced the launch of Protec+(TM) by Formica Group, a high performance antimicrobial laminate product. While health hazards continue to threaten public health, an increased awareness of the problems associated with microbes has led Formica Group to introduce this high performance and more hygienic product to its range. This new product has been tested against a number of standards including ISO22196:2011, JIS Z2801, ASTM G21 and it is capable of reducing microbe count on a surface by up to 99.5%. Working closely with the world's leading antimicrobial Technology Company, BioCote®, Formica Group has harnessed the power of silver and introduced it into the manufacturing process, providing the surface with enhanced protection. Effective against a broad spectrum of microbes, Protec+TM by Formica Group reduces the growth of bacteria and fungi, providing a more hygienic surface and protecting consumers against their potentially negative effects. When properly maintained, the protection will last for the expected life of the treated product and will help to reduce cross-contamination.
