Silver Antimicrobial Materials and Applications

Affordable, effective, durable

The new power of silver antimicrobials

Silver is a naturally occurring element that provides effective antimicrobial protection in:

  • fibers
  • films and coatings
  • injection molded components
  • adhesives
  • sealants
  • laminates


A century of Kodak expertise available to you

As a world leader in silver technology, Kodak researchers have manipulated the design of silver crystals so they can be applied to nearly all categories of textiles and plastics benefiting from an antimicrobial product.


A great business opportunity

From apparel that remains fresh to deck furniture that resists mildew, products that reduce the growth of microorganisms are selling at a premium. And since silver is one of nature’s elements, you can position these products as one of nature’s gifts—eliminating the concern inherent to many man-made antimicrobial chemicals.
