- Symphony Environmental Technologies confirms the registration of Santaform PO-5 by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and also the further expansion of Symphony's d2p product range.

The Santaform PO-5 masterbatch is part of Symphony's d2p anti-microbial product range and is marketed under a Distributorship Agreement between Symphony and Janssen PMP (a Division of Janssen Pharmaceutica NV).

Santaform antimicrobial technology, was developed by Janssen PMP (as experts in anti-microbial formulations) and introduced into plastics by Symphony (as experts in plastics).

Santaform antimicrobial technology is included in the production process for plastic products for the automotive, industrial, healthcare, catering, textiles, footwear and home and leisure sectors - from building materials and appliances to food storage containers and chopping boards, toilet seats, and many other applications where anti-microbial protection is needed.

It is easily added during manufacture and has no impact on the strength or durability of the plastic.

Symphony's d2p anti-microbial range of Masterbatches and Additives has been developed to resolve the issues relating to most types of bacteria whether gram positive or negative.

These d2p technologies have also been proven effective against algae, mould, mildew, yeast and some viral strains in a diverse range of product applications. These include many different types of plastic resins, paint, rubber and silicone, in addition to liquid formulations that are presently being trialled in post-harvest applications for fruit and vegetables.

The d2p family also includes a suite of insecticide masterbatches for uses mainly in the tropics for protection against mosquitoes and other dangerous insects.
