Roll-to-roll production system for cost-efficient manufacturing of extensive antimicrobial adhesive films

From bed rails, tray tables, telephones and alarm buttons to furnishings, door handles or taps: Hospitals are hotbeds for bacteria, which can lead to life-threatening infections in fragile patients. The EU project “FLEXPOL” brings together a consortium of research and industry partners from Italy, Spain, Portugal, the United Kingdom and Germany to develop a pilot line for the manufacturing of cost-efficient antimicrobial adhesive films. These films are applied to large-area surfaces around patients in order to reduce the risk of contamination. The combination of material and surface structure can kill various germs and inhibit bacterial growth with a targeted efficacy of 99 percent – this will not only ensure the health protection of both patients and medical staff but also yield a considerable economic benefit due to reduced expenditures for detergents and sanitizers.
