Keeping you safe, whatever you touch.
Tactigard is a powerful protective film designed to help mitigate the spread of infectious disease. Containing both copper and silver throughout its layers, our PVC film can be applied on virtually any surface, allowing it to protect an extensive range of facilities and environments.
Germ-free. All the way through.
Unlike conventional protective films, which include antimicrobial agents only in their top coatings, Tactigard contains large amounts of both copper and silver within each of its layers. These metals release ions that destroy the membranes and genetic material of harmful microorganisms, keeping your surfaces germ-free.
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 can 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.
Scratches? Not a problem. With its 3H hardness, Tactigard boasts exceptional resistance compared to other antimicrobial films on the market.
Tactigard was designed to resist fingerprints, smudges, and other undesirable marks. This keeps surfaces clean, even with frequent contact.
Tactigard boasts excellent resistance to ethyl acetate and other sources of chemical damage.
Tactigard is composed of PVC—a material that is easily moldable with heat on any surface. Additionally, the air-free structure of Tactigard’s adhesive provides greater ease of application.
