Polyfuze Graphics® Corporation announces antimicrobial safety products in support of healthcare associated infection (HAI) control and inhibition

Polyfuze Graphics® Corporation, the global manufacturer of the world’s only polymer fusion technology products for Safety Labeling and Graphics based in Clarkdale, Arizona has announced the introduction of their new proprietary line of polymer fusion products with antimicrobial blocking agents designed to exceed the rigid labeling standards of the medical, food service, reusable packaging, and health services industries.

Polyfuze Fusion Technology has unique applicability across all Olefinic Thermoplastic Polymer materials where safety, health and warning labels are required. Utilizing our unique molecular fusion technology, a Polyfuze label with proprietary antimicrobial additive unites permanently with the polymer substrates of critical products like Sharps Containers, Biohazard Waste Containers, Medical Beds, Medical Carts, and Hospital Laundry Carts to create seamless, permanently integrated labels with antimicrobial properties right at the surface where it’s needed most.
This exclusive process eliminates sanitary and quality issues of other labelling methods that use surface applications where label edges, layers and adhesives create shelters where microorganisms can thrive and grow despite cleaning with sprays and cleaners.

According to the CDC, “The prevention and reduction of healthcare-associated infections is a top priority for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).”(1)  The Center for Disease Control states that healthcare-associated infections (HAIs), many of which are caused by antibiotic-resistant bacteria, impact one in 25 patients – approximately 722,000 people – in the U.S. each year.(2)

With the integration of propriety Olefinic Polymer anti-microbial agents into the Polyfuze molecular fusion technology, Polyfuze® Graphics helps manufacturers create “label-free” products that are easy to clean and disinfect. “Ingenuity is one of the great components of America. Taking an established technology and adding key components of another can create great opportunity. Matthew Stevenson, Polyfuze® President/CEO. States; “The cost of HAIs range between $28 billion to $45 billion every year. By preventing just one with the combination of these technologies, Polyfuze can offer its contribution to the protection of human life and help reduce the costs associated with healthcare-associated infections.”(3)

Polyfuze Graphics Corporation is a global supplier of molecular fusion products for safety labeling and graphics, based in Clarkdale, Arizona. Polyfuze Graphics labeling technology for olefins is custom made from pigmented polymer creating permanently fused labels for products in many industries.
