Armor your surfaces.
Not just one, but two
Tactigard contains both silver and copper nanoparticles throughout its layers, which release ions to destroy harmful microorganisms.
advantages of Cu + Ag
While other antimicrobial films on the market contain only a single metal—either copper or silver—Tactigard employs a combination of both for unparalleled protective properties.
Silver has been proven to kill microbes in just 2 hours. However, high amounts of silver can be harmful to humans, and its effectiveness may also be reduced in low-humidity environments.
That’s where copper comes in. Studies have shown that copper films eliminate microbes in about 4 hours, compared to a maximum of 3 days on unprotected surfaces. And, unlike silver, the antimicrobial properties of copper are more likely to remain stable regardless of its environment.
So, silver or copper? We chose both—and with the perfect ratio, Tactigard boasts unmatched practicality and protection.
Buttons, rails, handles.
Light switches, keypads, desktops.
Tables, chairs, cabinets.
With Tactigard, there’s always more.
how cu + ag works
Unlike conventional protective films, which include antimicrobial agents only in their top coatings, Tactigard contains large amounts of both copper and silver throughout its layers. These metals constantly release ions that destroy the membranes and genetic material of harmful microorganisms, keeping your surfaces germ-free.
Protection for all
To best fit each unique application, Tactigard comes in both sheet and roll form, as well as in a convenient antimicrobial case.
Scratches? Not a problem. With its 3H hardness, Tactigard boasts exceptional resistance compared to other antimicrobial films on the market.
