Securing purity and hygiene in healthcare

It goes without saying that in the medical sector extreme hygiene is of the essence. Premix is already working in the medical sector with its electrically conductive PRE-ELEC® and dielectric PREPERM® materials. Now, we believe that our antimicrobial PREXELENT solutions could offer additional benefits for the healthcare industry.  

Premix has a 40-year history of modifying polymers and extensive experience in the diagnostics and healthcare sector. We have researched the possibilities of PREXELENT technology for some years already, in co-operation with many esteemed research institutes. According to the verified test results, the technology has over 99 % efficacy against MRSA, as well as other harmful microbes, including listeria and salmonella. The antimicrobial efficacy against MRSA has been shown in a test carried out by VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland: Antibacterial efficacy of plastic samples. Test method modified from standard ISO 22196:2011(E) “Measurement of antibacterial activity on plastics and other non-porous surfaces”.

We believe that the active antimicrobial PREXELENT technology can be of great use in the healthcare sector. How would your business benefit from this new technology?

Protecting people by ensuring high hygiene

In the healthcare sector, there are many touchpoints that require utmost purity - surfaces, protective clothing, cleaning equipment. The list is endless. The patented PREXELENTtechnology could offer one possibility to solve hygiene and purity issues in a sustainable way. 

We have strong, scientific proof showing the technology's effectivity against MRSA and other harmful microbes (VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland: Antibacterial efficacy of plastic samples. Test method modified from standard ISO 22196:2011(E) “Measurement of antibacterial activity on plastics and other non-porous surfaces”.). Although being highly effective against bacteria and viruses, PREXELENT™ is a sustainable choice. It is based on a true natural active agent - the pine tree resin. Resin is abundantly available in nature, and at the end of its lifecycle, does not bioaccumulate in the environment.

PREXELENT™ is manufactured in a so-called melt compounding process, in which an active antimicrobial agent is processed straight into the plastic. The resulting material can be further processed in the same way as plastics in general, including injection molding or extrusion, into different shapes and forms. With PREXELENT™, the active agent migrates to the material’s surface at a chemically controlled rate. The effectivity of the agents is activated by humidity or liquid.

PREXELENT™ was released to the press in spring 2020 and we believe it has huge, global potential. Our research work continues and evolves, and we are initiating several industrial-scale application development projects and inviting cooperation inquiries from organizations interested in leveraging the patented technology to tap into new business opportunities.
