ARAUCO's InCopper™ Antimicrobial Technology, an Enhancement to its PRISM TFL Collection

ARAUCO has announced that proprietary InCopper™ antimicrobial technology is now available as specified on Prism TFL exclusive designs.

InCopper is registered by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) - Reg No. 93650 - and consists of a mixture of copper salts that acts as an antimicrobial agent, continuously protecting the laminate surface against mold, fungi and other microbes that can stain the panel or cause odor. It is introduced at the time the decorative sheet is saturated with resins, prior to lamination to the substrate.

Prism TFL with InCopper is ideal for interior applications with humid conditions, high traffic flow or settings that may be susceptible to mold growth. It is effective in eliminating many fungi by inhibiting the formation of spores, thereby inhibiting reproduction of the fungi. In technical terms, InCopper reduces the metabolic and reproductive (sporulation) mechanisms of filamentous fungi. Protecting surfaces, not people, from contamination, the antimicrobial attribute remains for the life of the panel, as long as the decorative surface remains intact. Office spaces, healthcare facilities, restaurants, community centers, retail locations, schools, closets, bathrooms and locker rooms are a just a few fitting applications.
