Stamps that stay cleaner for longer

Posted on 2nd August 2022 by Get Set Stamps

Reduce the risk of cross-contamination

Like most office stationery products, rubber stamps can be handled by many different people throughout the day.  Multiple handling can present a risk in terms of cross-contamination of bacteria such as E. coli, S. aureus, MRSA and Salmonella.

Stamps with antibacterial protection

COLOP Microban® antibacterial stamps inhibit the growth of bacteria on the stamp’s surfaces by up to 99%.  Built in during the point of manufacture, the Microban® protection will last for the expected lifetime of the stamp and will not wash off or wear away. 

Why choose Microban® stamps?

Like all custom stamps, our COLOP Microban® stamps are completely customisable with your own text, logos, and more!  Available in a range of sizes, these self-inking stamps are perfect for the workplace and home.  

The addition of Microban® antibacterial technology also means that your custom stamp will:

·         stay cleaner and fresher in-between cleaning

·         be less likely to facilitate cross-contamination

·         be easier to keep clean

·         be less likely to degrade prematurely

·         be perfect for use in high-traffic environments such as schools and healthcare

How does Microban® technology work?

COLOP Microban® stamps utilise Silvershield® technology that is harmless for health.  The technology is used in the handle of each stamp where the potential cross-contamination is at its highest.

How it works:

1.       Silvershield® is infused into the hard surface, which then means it’s fully integrated

2.       Microbes transfer to the treated hard surface

3.       Silver ions penetrate microbes and stops their ability to reproduce, make food, or eliminate waste.  Therefore, inhibiting the growth of microbes

The image below shows the difference between an unprotected surface and a surface protected with Microban® Silvershield®.

As you can see, on an unprotected surface bacteria multiplies significantly over a period of 24 hours, whereas a protected surface sees a decrease in bacteria, meaning that the risk of cross-contamination is significantly reduced.
