More than ever, people are looking for easy ways to fight the spread of germs — and one of their biggest concerns is keeping surfaces clean. Around homes, hospitals, schools, sports clubs and beyond, the growth of bacteria and fungus can cause health hazards.
Already known for its wide range of on‐trend colours and patterns and its easy clean nature, the Formica laminate collection now offers further benefits with Protec+, its antimicrobial surface. The active ingredient in Protec+ is silver, providing enhanced antimicrobial efficacy for the lifetime of the product while the antifungal elements assist with preserving the aesthetics of the surface, preventing the growth of mould and inhibiting the growth of odour forming bacteria.
