Manufacturers of medical and pharmaceutical products now have the assurance that that they can benefit from the substantial advantages of an antimicrobial over conventional additives while meeting critical standards of biocompatability. Available as a powdered additive for plastics and textiles and as a masterbatch supplied by RTP Co., the antimicrobial has been found to meet ISO 10993-1 and USP bio-compatability standards. Tiny loadings of Biosafe additive, ranging from 0.1 to 1.0%, are sufficient to keep product surfaces clean and protected from the staining and degradation caused by bacteria, mold, mildew, and fungi.
