rep-L® is easy, inexpensive, and effective when applied to paper and paper products, either during the manufacturing process or after.

Humans come into contact with a LOT of paper

For centuries paper has been a precious commodity, being used as currency, packaging, wound care solutions, books, drywall sheathing, toilet paper, etc. Everyday, nearly everyone on the planet interacts with paper is some form or another. Unfortunately, paper is a favorite home to microbes, especially when humidity levels increase, causing mold and mildew to growth at accelerated rates.

Affordable Antimicrobial Protection is Here

Current solutions for paper are very expensive, and while these expensive solutions may be common practice for the healthcare industry, industries such as packaging are looking for additives to enhance their bottom line and not price them out of their respective markets.

Why rep-L®

The following are just several of the reasons why paper manufacturers and processors are now turning to rep-L® antimicrobials for their products protection:

  • Bio-Based – rep-L® is almost 90% bio-based.
  • Price – rep-L® is a fraction of the cost of Silver and other prolific toxic solutions.
  • Efficacy – rep-L™ is a broad-spectrum (eliminates both gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria including many of the most deadly bacteria known as “Superbugs” including MRSA, VRE, CRE, E. coli, etc.
  • Value – rep-L® adds significant value to both the health of the environments in which they are utilized, and secondly in the value that it adds to the product with enhanced capabilities.
  • Wet & Dry – rep-L® has excellent efficacy in both wet and dry environments. 90% of currently available antimicrobials are only when activated by moisture / humidity.

rep-L® can be easily added to materials during their production:

  • At the wet end – directly into the pulp
  • At the dry end – directly onto the sheet in the form of a coating.

rep-L® will eliminate bacteria on paper, creating safer environments for the people who use it. As populations come together in denser environments, and sharing of spaces, transportation and commercial goods becomes more commonplace, it is important for manufacturers to offer built in antimicrobial protection to their paper products.

Both methods of addition add value to existing products in the form of greater safety to users of the products and greater return for the manufacturers that have created them.

rep-L® is a bio-based, broad spectrum, innovative, inexpensive solution to microbial problems encountered throughout the world. We invite you to experience the benefits rep-L® can provide to your products and materials. We are here to enhance your products and the lives of those that use them.

rep-L® is the clear solution for both commodity and non-commodity based paper applications.
