Why Antimicrobial Cards
An ID badge or credit card is a surface that is not cleaned every day. We hold it close to us, our hands, swipe in wells, hand to others. An antimicrobial surface contains an antimicrobial agent that inhibits the ability of microorganisms to grow on the surface. In 2010, an inventor identified the employee badge as a means of cross-contamination while on a site visit to a Veterans Affairs hospital, and patented the process of manufacturing an antimicrobial badge to inhibit and discourage the growth and replication on badges and cards. Antimicrobial agents are added to plastic during manufacture of the badge to inhibit germs, viruses and bacteria regeneration such as E. Coli and Staph. The effect long-lasting with no adverse reactions to anyone interacting with antimicrobial surface.
