Antimicrobial Wallcoverings

Muraspec Wallcoverings is helping in the fight against harmful micro-organisms! Many Muraspec Wallcoverings patterns already contain two types of antimicrobial protection: Biocide and Biomaster.

Patterns containing Biocide have a protective finish that prohibits the growth of fungi and bacteria.

Biomaster is an inherent characteristic that eliminates up to 99% of bacteria on the wallcovering’s surface.


How Biomaster Works

Biomaster guarantees fast, effective antimicrobial protection for the effective lifetime of the product, helps to keep surfaces clean and hygienic, and reduces the risk of cross-contamination. Biomaster is easily incorporated in to any plastic, textile, paper, paint or coating.

When bacteria come into contact with a Biomaster protected surface, the silver ions prevent them from growing, producing energy or replicating, therefore they die.

Unlike some antimicrobial agents, Biomaster is incredibly durable, long lasting and highly active. When added, it is dispersed throughout the entire item and becomes an integral part of the product. 

Silver is inorganic and non-leaching which means that, unlike organic antimicrobial agents / technologies, it stays within the item to which it is added.

The controlled release of the active ingredient provides maximum antibacterial protection for the lifetime of the product.

How is Biomaster added?

Biomaster can be added at any stage of the manufacturing process. Our antimicrobial technology is available in masterbatch, liquid and powder formulations and we will work with you to find the best solution for your application. 

Unlike topical treatments, Biomaster is incorporated IN the product not ON it, providing permanent product protection.
