neutraSil™ antimicrobial silicone rubber – for medical, pharmaceutical, food & beverage sectors.
The covid-19 pandemic has caused an unprecedented increase in hygiene measures being implemented across the world.
neutraSil™ antimicrobial silicone is an example of how hygiene levels can be increased due to its proven formulation to actively combat bacterial strains growing on its surface.
How neutraSil™ silicone rubber works
Silver ions present in neutraSil silicone rubber absorb bacteria and microbes by breaking down their cell walls and inhibiting development of the micro-organisms.
The silver ions provide ongoing protection by preventing further contamination and colonisation on the surface of the silicone.
Innovative silicone rubber technology
A proven ‘silver’ technology is at the core of neutraSil™’s highly efficient inhibition of bacterial growth. neutraSil™ silicone rubber works by releasing a stream of silver ions, inhibiting the growth of bacterial cells by disabling their proton pumps.
This interferes with the sulfhydryl proteins required for their functioning and disrupting cell wall synthesis.
FDA Compliant Material
neutraSil™ has been tested to and complies with the requirements of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulation 21CFR177.2600 for rubber articles in repeated contact with food, and EC 1935/2004 on materials and articles intended to come into contact with food.
neutraSil™ has also been tested to the Japanese Industrial Standard JIS Z 2801:2010 standard (equivalent to ISO 22196:2007) which measures antibacterial activity in hydrophobic materials.
