As we continue to fight the pandemic, consumers are growing more conscious about the products they use on a regular basis. They want to ensure that antimicrobial and antiviral properties are built into their plastic products and surfaces, but also that they are safe for consumption use. In order to protect consumers, it’s important to choose plastics with non-leaching, antimicrobial, and antiviral properties that resist bacteria growth and are not harmful to a person’s health.
