The important role packaging plays in preventing bacterial transmission:

Packaging, and particularly food packaging, plays a huge role in the spread of foodborne illnesses and diseases more generally. Packaging can be easily contaminated with harmful bacteria such as E. coli, Salmonella, Campylobacter, and Listeria monocytogenes. Together, these bacteria are responsible for thousands of cases of disease and hundreds of millions of dollars in lost value.

rep-L® offers an effective defense against contamination in packaging. rep-L is a bio-based antimicrobial additive that halts the growth of disease-causing bacteria on contact surfaces, including where food meets packaging. This antimicrobial works across a broad spectrum to eliminate not just bacteria, but also mold, mildew, and fungi. More importantly, rep-L® is effective even against numerous strains of antibiotic-resistant bacteria that are notoriously hard to get rid of.

Having an antimicrobial additive you can rely on is increasingly important as food recalls become more common and food safety regulations are tightening around the world. For other types of packaging, antimicrobial activity is just as critical for cutting down on the spread of germs into people’s homes and offices.

rep-L® is an extremely trustworthy solution when it comes to preventing the proliferation of microorganisms. Broad-spectrum antimicrobial activity is rep-L’s promise, day in and day out. No matter what type of packaging you produce, rep-L® can halt the growth and spread of germs on contact.

rep-L® works for almost any packaging.

The advantage to using rep-L® as an antimicrobial compound in packaging is that it works with a huge variety of materials. rep-L® is available as either a water-based or oil-based solution, and it can be incorporated into virtually any material used in food or other packaging. For example, rep-L® can be added to:

  • Paper and all paper-based materials
  • Some plastics and polymers
  • Wood
  • Metal (via coatings)
  • Fibers, fabrics and meshes
  • Many types of coatings for packaging materials

rep-L® can defend the contents of any package against mold and bacteria, making it the antimicrobial solution of choice for keeping food and other products safe and healthy. The additive works with your existing manufacturing process, too, so you don’t have to worry about changing your products or workflow.

On top of that, rep-L® is more affordable than traditional antimicrobials. Our additive is bio-based and doesn’t rely on expensive metals like zinc, copper, or silver for its antimicrobial activity. That’s important when working with packaging, which needs to be produced at scale in a way that’s both safe and cost-effective. Just as important, the lack of metals in rep-L® also cuts down on the amount of metals that make it into consumers’ bodies and the environment.
