Medical Paper Products
Another important initiative for Paperlogic is the development of antimicrobial, antibacterial papers for the medical and homecare markets. Several approaches are under consideration, most of which involve adding nanoparticles of specialized chemicals like silver or zinc oxide to the paper during manufacturing. This non-toxic, naturally occurring antimicrobial technology creates a material that inhibits the growth or spread of bacteria, fungi, molds and mildews that can cause stains and odors.
Some of these antimicrobial technologies may also have applications beyond the medical and healthcare fields. Besides health centers, one of the greatest problems faced by libraries and document storage facilities is the susceptibility of paper to fungal infections. The difficulty these organizations face maintaining temperature and relative humidity to create environments that are not conducive to fungal growth, make paper with antimicrobial properties a smart answer.
