Discover our new antimicrobial surface treatment

In response to the global pandemic, we have launched new antimicrobial surface treatment, available across our full range of uncoated creative papers.

We've partnered with Biomaster™ creators, Addmaster. Our antimicrobial solution inhibits the growth of bacteria and viruses, including human Coronavirus, in as little as just one hour and prevents the growth of microbes for up to 10 years.


The surface treatment is particularly beneficial where papers are handled by multiple people or where there is a risk of microbial propagation, in hygiene critical environments such as hospitals, classrooms and hospitality venues. It also offers added value for numerous applications, including packaging, delivery notes, medical prescriptions, restaurant menus and business cards.

In addition to inhibiting the growth of microbes, the surface treatment does not take away from the attributes of our papers, which print with the same precision and quality that our products are known for without affecting colour, appearance, recyclability or shelf life.

Arjowiggins’ new antimicrobial solution is already available across our Security Papers range and is now available on demand across our full range of uncoated Creative Papers, including HP indigo and dry toner products for digital printing. It is also compatible with all print techniques, including hot foil stamping.

The minimum order quantity is set at just two tons to help ensure it is accessible to those who need it most. This new on-demand service is part of our extensive custom-made offering that includes other specialist services like bespoke watermarking and embossing, colour development and matching, to name a few.
