Anti-microbial plastic



Symphony Environmental Technologies developed a range of anti-bacterial and anti-fungal formulations called 'd2p' which can be put into plastic products during manufacturing and which could help prevent the spread of infection in healthcare settings.


d2p (AB) is an anti-bacterial formulation successfully tested against over 50 common organisms including dangerous bacteria such as MRSA, E.Coli, Salmonella, Listeria, Pseudomonas and Aspergillus Niger.  d2p (AF)additionally  inhibits the growth of fungi, bacteria, mildew and algae that can cause discolouration, staining and odours, and which are a danger to human health. It can also increase the shelf-life of bread and other foods, and reduce the need for preservatives, whilst maintaining the aesthetic and functional properties of plastic products. 

For further information see d2p.
