Exercise Books are one of the most commonly and frequently handled items in a School, and with studies suggesting that up to 85% of junior pupils do not wash their hands effectively, they can be a major exposure pathway for bacteria including E. coli and MRSA.
When bacteria comes into contact with The Exercise Book Company ‘anti-bacteria’ protected book, silver ions prevent them from growing, producing energy or replicating, therefore they die.
Silver, which is inorganic and non-leaching which means that, unlike organic antimicrobial agents / technologies, it stays within the item to which it is added.
Unlike some antimicrobial agents, we use the internationally recognised ‘Biomaster’ product, which is incredibly durable, long lasting and highly active. When added, it is dispersed throughout the entire book and becomes an integral part of the product.
The controlled release of the active ingredient provides maximum antibacterial protection for the lifetime of the product.
Biomaster is proven to inhibit the growth of bacteria by up to 99% and lasts the lifetime of the product!
As a proud UK Manufacturer, the Exercise Book Company is here to help Schools and teachers, protect cross transmission and the forward spreading of harmful virus’s.
The incremental cost of a few pennies per book for bacterial protection, provides constant peace of mind, which we feel, is worth it.
