Nekoosa Coated Products Introduces Antimicrobial Carbonless Paper

"We recognize the need for a product that can help reduce the spread of MRSA infection." —Paul Charapata, CEO, Nekoosa Coated Products.

Oct. 10, 2012 - Nekoosa Coated Products announced that it has created the world's first antimicrobial carbonless paper by adding Biomaster® silver ion technology, a non-toxic, naturally occurring antimicrobial technology to protect against the spreading of bacteria.

Biomaster is manufactured by BiomasterUSA, LLC.

According to Nekoosa, Biomaster silver ion technology will not affect the paper's properties such as dry toner/laser compatibility or carbonless image permanence, and does not cause product degradation, discoloration or deterioration.

Nekoosa's carbonless and bond papers protected with Biomaster silver ion technology are suitable for any high traffic environment such as hospitals, classrooms, exam rooms, offices, clinics and daycares, the company said.

"We recognize the need for a product that can help reduce the spread of MRSA infection," said Paul Charapata, CEO of Nekoosa Coated Products. “This is an exciting new product launch that we feel will make an impact in reducing this emerging problem.”

With a legacy dating back to the 1960's as 3M, and later the Imation Specialty Paper division, Nekoosa Coated Products is the leading carbonless technology innovator in precision coating, microencapsulation and imaging chemistry. The company also offers a full line of specialty papers including magnetic papers, synthetic substrates and pressure sensitive films. For more information visit: www.nekoosacoated.com.
