Calgary-based on-demand print and information solutions provider WCD recently used Drytac Protac AMP film with Microban antimicrobial protection on a specialist project to help prevent the spread of Covid-19 among workers at a local distributor’s warehouse.
WCD was tasked by planning, design, and construction business WII Projects Calgary to create a café/kitchen experience for the business, with the aim of not only overhauling the look of the facility but also ensuring maximum protection for staff using the refreshment area.
The primary challenge for WCD centered around the protection element, with the company having to source a material that would help cut the risk of the virus spread among workers using the facility, while at the same time not impacting the look of the new images or surfaces underneath.
WCD opted for Drytac Protac AMP, a unique clear textured polyester surface protection film with Microban antimicrobial protection, which significantly reduces the chance of mold growth and bacterial contamination on higher-risk touch surfaces such as counters in food preparation areas.
Drytac Protac AMP functioned as a laminate and was applied to surfaces throughout the kitchen area. The clarity of the film meant the graphics design underneath was clearly visible. Additionally, Protac AMP did not impact the performance of the graphics, or the food preparation surfaces.
WCD Signage Solution Specialist (National) Stacy Underhill explained, “With Drytac Protac AMP, WCD was able to provide added protection against viruses and harmful germs. Thanks to its matte finish, we were able to protect the surface’s graphics, without light washout to the graphics."
She Continued, “The antimicrobial qualities of Drytac Protac AMP also means that the area requires less cleaning, which in turn ensures that the vinyl-covered areas are much less susceptible to damage from constant wiping and scrubbing."
Underhill Concluded, “Products such as Drytac Protac AMP enable us to address any interior decor or signage antimicrobial protection needs.”
