From the moment they touch the door handle to enter to the time they grab it again to exit, your visitors face countless contamination hazards via the many surfaces in your space that they touch. And while you can’t prevent everything, you can mitigate your customers’ risk of exposure to viruses including corona-virus as well as surface bacteria.
ProtekFILM is designed to address messaging, identification and protection.
The antiviral and antimicrobial nature of the film will work to eradicate and disable the microbes and viruses that are on the surface and help improve the safety of everyone.
It allows you to communicate that you have taken steps to make your establishment safer for you, your staff and your visitors.
ProtekFILM is an antiviral, antimicrobial PVC coating that can be easily applied to a variety of surfaces in the office, gym, school, home—anywhere. Its antimicrobial properties resist viruses bacteria for 5 years, providing a safer surface for everyone who comes into contact with it.
ProtekFILM protects against Coronavirus and other viruses. And while you may not have heard of the many bacteria that ProtekFILM can protect you from, you’re probably familiar with the many illnesses these bacteria can cause.
ProtekFILM is a great way to show your customers you take their health very seriously and have created a ProtekZONE in your place of business.
Film consisting of a 60-µm, transparent, cast PVC containing antimicrobial agents and coated with a pressure-sensitive acrylic adhesive. Intended for antimicrobial protection of surfaces in areas that require a high level of hygiene (hospitals, agribusinesses and food industries, wet rooms, public places, etc.).
Active strains (according to ISO 22196):
Reducing > 99.99 % of bacteria ascertained for:
Antiviral activity on the Human coronavirus HCoV-229E strain according to the ISO 21702 standard):
Tensile strength (N/25 mm)
Elongation at break (%):
Shrinkage 168 hours at 70 °C (158 °F) (mm)
• Silicone-coated PE paper with HEXIS print.
• Stable under hygrometric variations.
(Measured average values at the publication of the technical datasheet)
Peel strength test 180° on glass (N/25 mm):
after 20 minutes of application
after 24 hours of application
Initial tack (N/25 mm)
Release (N/25 mm)
Resistance to solvents: the adhesive is resistant to most chemicals (alcohol, diluted acids, oils).
• Solvent-based acrylic adhesive.
• Immediate and permanent adhesion.
Under normal usage conditions, harmless when in contact with human skin (skin compatibility study carried out under dermatological control).
Active compound: silver ions, < 0.3 % w/w of the entire product.
Antimicrobial activity maintained after 365 cleanings with water, alcohol, chlorine bleach and Aniosurf® (respect the dilution recommended by the manufacturer).
The film can be cleaned/disinfected by all conventional cleaning methods, using non-abrasive accessories, cleaning products, detergents or products currently used in healthcare environments.
The disinfection levels achieved are compatible with common usage in the most sensitive areas in terms of infectious risks (surgery wards, immunocompromised wards, neonatology, etc.).
Before applying this laminate to a ProtekFILM digital printing film, which has been printed with solvent inks, it is recommended to respect the following optimal drying time for the inks:
For more information on the application method of the ProtekFILM film, please refer to the Application Guide on the "Professionals" pages, category "Laminates" on the site www.ProtekFILMgraphics.com.
Shelf life (before application):
The shelf life of this film is 1 year when stored upright in its original packaging in a dust-free environment at a temperature ranging from +15 °C to +25 °C (+59 °F to +77 °F) with a relative humidity of 50 %.
Vertical indoor exposure: up to 5 years (in areas not subject to frequent handling or high visitor frequency).
A film applied in areas of frequent handling (e.g.: handles) or high visitor frequency will be subject to repeated abrasion which will reduce its durability (change of appearance, lifting, etc.). The film durability
depends on the intensity and frequency of the mechanical stress to which it is exposed.
