Primasil silicone rubber compounds with antimicrobial protection

Primasil, the leading supplier of silicone rubber compounds, have launched a range of antimicrobial grades incorporating Biomaster.

Tested for antimicrobial effectiveness to ISO 22196:2011 standards, these grades can be further customised by Primasil technologists to satisfy your requirements.

“From medical devices to mass transit applications, these grades will provide a clear competitive advantage to our customers”, comments Steve Wheeler Managing Director of Primasil.

Wheeler continues, “Biomaster are rapidly marking themselves out as the leader in antimicrobial technology, with success already in the medical, food hygiene, construction and consumer markets. It is a natural progression for us to partner with them for a range of antimicrobial silicone rubber grades”

Primasil’s Biomaster antimicrobial silicone compounds provide protection against unwanted bacteria such as E.coli, Salmonella, Listeria, MRSA and Campylobacter.

Primasil will be using the Biomaster branding on their new compounds to reinforce the benefits of having the pre-compounded ISO tested grades.

The use of Biomaster branding is a growing trend in polymer applications and having the technology readily available in Primasil’s silicone rubber compounds gives the customer an easy way to incorporate the technology into their products.

Paul Morris, Managing Director of Addmaster, producers of the Biomaster range of additives, comments, “we are delighted to enter into this agreement with Primasil, who are recognised as the market leaders in silicone compounding. We already have several live projects with Primasil and expect the growth from this sector to be very strong in 2013 ”.

*Please note that Addmaster was acquired by the Polygiene Group AB in January 2021, so all news articles prior to that date will still be branded as Addmaster.
