Paper News: Nekoosa Creates World’s First Carbonless Paper with Added Antimicrobial Protection

NEKOOSA, WI – Nekoosa Coated Products’ creates the world’s first antimicrobial carbonless paper by adding Biomaster® silver ion technology, a non-toxic, naturally occurring antimicrobial technology to protect the paper’s surface from bacteria.

“As the cost of health care continues to rise, more and more antimicrobial treated products are being offered that are protected against non-pathogenic bacteria, producing cleaner product surfaces. For the first time, Nekoosa Coated Products brings a superior level of product protection to carbonless and copy paper products,” says Charlie Matthews of BiomasterUSA, LLC, the distributor of Biomaster®. Biomaster® silver ion technology will not affect the paper’s properties such as dry toner/laser compatibility or carbonless image permanence.
