Inhibiting the growth of odor and stain causing microorganisms

Formica’s Protec+™ laminate was created following an increased awareness of the problems microbes can cause for a product, such as foul odors, irreversible staining and material degradation. Protec+™ incorporates BioCote® to provide a high performance, premium laminate with an additional feature of antimicrobial surface preservation. Protec+™ is used in a wide variety of environments including healthcare, leisure, food and catering, and education.

Introducing the Formica® Laminate Antimicrobial Collection with surface preservation

The fruitful partnership between Formica and BioCote® has further expanded in autumn 2021 to introduce a curated collection of laminates available in 20 highly usable colours and patterns. These surfaces were developed to work in conjunction with regular cleaning practices to protect against the negative effects of odor causing and staining microbes, namely bacteria and mold.

Where good cleaning practices are of paramount importance, BioCote® can help. The antimicrobial technology inhibits the growth of microbes on a protected surface, is invisible to the naked eye, and has been proven to last within a product for 25 years.

*BioCote® technology is built into products to inhibit the growth of microorganisms that may affect Formica products. The antimicrobial properties do not protect users or others against bacteria, viruses, germs, or other disease organisms. This technology is not a substitute for good cleaning practises.
