Antimicrobial Label for Marking

These came in response to customers concerned about limiting the spread of microbes and bacteria while handling marking pens.

U Mark

U-Mark (Belleville, IL) is introducing a new Label Guard antimicrobial coating on marker labels, answering requests from customers concerned about limiting the spread of microbes and bacteria while handling marking pens. Label Guard uses a copper and silver nanoparticle coating that inhibits the growth of bacteria on labels. When bacteria come into contact with the label, copper and silver ions penetrate the bacterial cell wall, interfere with enzyme production and prevent the cell from producing energy, interrupt the cellโ€™s DNA, and prevent replication. The copper and silver ions are incredibly durable and long lasting.
