The technology

Polygiene: your perfect protection partner

Our most widely used application for hospitality is Polygiene BioMaster™, industry-leading antimicrobial protection that stops microbes from growing. Totally food safe, BioMaster™ significantly lowers the risk of microbial and bacterial growth in hygiene-critical areas such as work surfaces, cutting boards, storage containers, menus and even wall coverings like wallpaper and paint.

Many brands also use our powerful garment freshness technologies Polygiene StayFresh™ and Polygiene OdorCrunch™. When combined, they eliminate odors through prevention and absorption – perfect for chef jackets and staff uniforms.

Yes. Polygiene additives can be incorporated into any part of the production process. And because they’re available in masterbatch, powder and liquid form, they can be applied to almost any type of polymer, coating or material. Polygiene BioMaster™ delivers exceptional and invisible protection 24/7 and can be used particularly effectively in conjunction with other cleaning products.

Polygiene technology is thoroughly and independently tested to ISO standards. Polygiene BioMaster™ has been shown to inhibit the growth of bacteria including those linked to MRSA, VRE and Acinetobacter baumannii. Polygiene has REACH compliance, ensuring that our products have been approved under European legislation covering the manufacture and use of chemicals.

On the freshness or textile offering, our driving principle is to convert consumables to become durables. In recognition of our achievements, we’ve been bluesign® accredited for consumer safety and low-impact manufacturing techniques and have also achieved Oeko-Tex® Eco Passport verification for our work in creating sustainable manufacturing processes and supply chains.

Polygiene technologies are built-in to your product during the manufacturing process. So a simple tin of paint can have all the benefits of Polygiene technology but look no different from any other brand. What you and your customers get is total peace of mind that everything from mats on the floor through to menu cards or the walls in your kitchens are protected by Polygiene. Our additives are also resistant to the high temperatures used in the manufacture of most polymers and can be added to polymer-based products effectively, giving you integrated protection for the lifetime of the product.

“A significant objective of our products is to increase the safety of food production. Millions of working hours are lost annually due to food poisoning, and whilst diligence in temperature control is paramount, there is also the need to ensure that equipment is kept clean to avoid cross-contamination. The inclusion in our products of Biomaster provides added protection from cross-contamination and gives us a marketing advantage over many competitors.”
David Carter Commercial Manager, Electronic Temperature Instruments Ltd.

“The inbuilt surface protection is effective for the lifetime of the product. And since our products are designed and manufactured for high traffic areas, any scuffing or marking will not trigger any leaching of the product. There is no trade-off on aesthetics when specifying a wallcovering with Biomaster antimicrobial technology. You simply get the best of both worlds; stunning quality wallcoverings, plus peace of mind.”
