American Eagle launches Eagle Armour with Biomaster

American Eagle Paper Mills based in Tyrone, Pennsylvania, USA introduces their new product, Eagle Armour Copy. New to the market, this recycled, multipurpose copy paper is treated with Biomaster antimicrobial protection, a silver ion technology to guard against the growth of unwanted bacteria on the papers surface.

“American Eagle Paper Mills is proud to have successfully manufactured this paper to incorporate an antimicrobial agent within the paper without sacrificing its performance or appearance,” said John Ferner, President of American Eagle Paper Mills.  “The Rochester Institute of Technology performed laboratory tests on the print quality and found no noticeable difference on the treated paper versus the untreated control paper,” Ferner continued.  

According to Biomaster USA LLC, supplier of the EPA registered Biomaster antimicrobial silver ion technology used in the Eagle Armour Copy paper, silver is an element found naturally in the environment and has long been regarded as a versatile antimicrobial agent.  The silver ions in Biomaster interact with a wide range of molecular processes within microorganisms resulting in a range of effects from inhibition of growth, loss of energy production, and prevention of DNA replication and new cell formation, thereby accounting for the high efficacy of Biomaster as an antimicrobial agent.  

“Additional testing  performed at an independent microbiology laboratory on the antimicrobial copy paper demonstrated a 99.9% reduction in the growth of bacteria versus untreated paper and that Biomaster lasts for the lifetime of the paper,” said Ferner.  “This copy paper is ideal for use in hospitals, clinics, doctor offices, dental offices, long term care and assisted living facilities, restaurant and food service facilities, schools, offices and more.”

The copy paper is 92 Bright and is manufactured using recycled 50% and 100% post-consumer & industrial waste content.

Biomaster can also be incorporated into all of American Eagle Paper Mill’s product lines, which include uncoated commercial printing papers, along with wove and Kraft envelope converting grades.
