In a season that has been ripe with flues and common colds, Domtar has released the first antimicrobial office paper available in North America.
Designed to protect paper against the growth of bacteria, odours, fungus, mold and mildew, the paper is treated with a silver compound that kills most bacteria that come into contact with it. Although the paper is intended for general office use, it can also be used for the healthcare, laboratory, hospitality, education and governmental sectors.
“The development of this paper presents an opportunity to help reduce the proliferation of bacteria in office environments,” Steve Barker, senior vice president, pulp and paper sales and marketing for Domtar said.
The paper works to inhibit the growth of bacterial odours, mold, mildew and fungus, and holds onto its antimicrobial features throughout its shelf life, making it ideal for archival purposes. The paper also retains these features after printing and varnishing.
