MatX Smart Materials has developed a biocide-free technology with anti-microbial, anti-mould, anti-fungal and anti-viral properties and ensures a >99.99% effectiveness against bacteria and that with only natural ingredients. This technique is applicable to a wide range of polymers for various production techniques, including injection moulding.
MatX works with different masterbatches for different polymers, for example: ABS, PE, PP, PS, PVC (soft), TPU, TPE, LSR and more. Adding 3% of the anti-microbial masterbatch from MatX Smart Materials gives the injection moulded object anti-microbial, anti-mould/fungal and anti-viral properties. The power of the technology is that it does not migrate and fade, which makes it 100% safe for humans, animals and nature, including for medical purposes. The material does not contain any harmful or toxic substances, silver, copper or nanomaterials. Bacteria that come into contact with the biocide-free material have hardly any chance of survival and the material inhibits the growth of microbes continuously.
After a lot of research and tests, MatX has incorporated this technology in their own filament which is called AMBX PLA. Click here to read more about or buy AMBX PLA.
