Antimicrobial Card



In times of unprecedented uncertainty, we must all do our best to make the environment we live in a safer place. While we adapt to a new normality, all sectors are taking steps to provide their customers with new and better products in order to continue operating with higher safety standards.

Consumers are careful to touch surfaces for the possible transmission of pathogens. Every surface can represent a breeding ground for bacteria and viruses, and cards, especially if they are frequently used such as bank cards or loyalty cards, are no exception. The frequent use and continuous passage from hand to hand can facilitate the transmission of pathogens, and some of them can remain on surfaces even for a long time.

In order to meet the growing need for a higher level of hygiene and safety even in the world of cards, Publicenter has created antimicrobial cards. This card is one of a kind in Italy and is realized with a new material that contains specific agents that help to counteract the growth of microorganisms on its surface. The agents inside the card have an antimicrobial effect which facilitates the elimination of bacteria and viruses (Coronavirus) that are present on its surface.

These new antimicrobial cards are ideal for any field in which the use of cards is frequent, for example, bank cards or loyalty cards, or where hygiene plays an important role, such as cards used in healthcare or schools. Or, more generally, for those who want to offer their customers a higher level of hygiene and safety.

Their efficacy is continuous, 7 days a week, 24 hours a day and on both sides of the card. The antimicrobial agents are inside the PVC, and this allows the card to keep its properties unaltered over time, even in case of frequent use and contact with abrasive surfaces.

The new technology of our antimicrobial cards has been tested by prestigious laboratories to certify its effectiveness, following the rigorous international standards: ISO 22196 and ISO 21702.
