Project Description

PaperGard™

Designed for use in applications where surface protection is a priority reducing risk from bacteria or viral contamination.

This James Cropper paper innovation means there need not be a compromise of hygiene over beauty in the production of paper and packaging products.

PaperGard™ is proven to be effective at reducing the presence of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes Covid-19, on the surface of paper.

2020 test results show that the PaperGard™ protected papers reduced the viability of the viral strain by over 95% in only 15 minutes, and by 99.9% within 2 hours when tested against ISO 18184*. Learn more here.

How PaperGard™ works

PaperGard™ incorporates Biomaster® antimicrobial technology from the UK’s leading additive specialist, Addmaster.

Biomaster® is highly effective against the growth and proliferation of bacteria and enveloped viruses on porous surfaces such as textiles and paper.
