The use of antimicrobials in food packaging is a rapidly developing technology, and represents one of the strategies for reducing the growth of bacteria and fungi (molds) on food contact surfaces.

Hygienists and healthcare providers actively seek ways to create protection barriers against the spread of human pathogens.
Which offers durable, built-in protection for your product against bacteria, fungi, molds, and yeasts, and actively challenges organisms that may try to establish themselves in or on your treated product.
Odors from textiles and footwear are caused by bacteria while staining is usually the result of fungi or mold.
against both bacteria and fungi, resulting in products that are fresher for longer. And thanks to its low solubility in water, SANAFOR™ does not easily come out of treated products.
Microorganisms are all around us. We seek to protect ourselves from exposure, for example, by using antibacterial soaps and wipes or by putting bleach in our laundry water to kill the bacteria that causes stains and odors.
The use of antimicrobials in items found in our homes is already widely accepted, sparing us from fungi, molds and odors caused by bacteria.
Just as we want to be protected from bad odors and moldy surfaces at home,we also want to be protected when we are in our automobiles and elsewhere.
Whether you are a manufacturer of automobiles, agricultural film or ventilation pipes, SANAFOR™ can be used to prevent odors caused by bacteria,protect against discoloration, staining or disfiguring caused by fungi, or to avoid growth of algae on surfaces.
