NEW Antimicrobial TuffSkin

Smart Flat Surface Protection Film

Introducing our new surface protection product:

TuffSkin is a 4 mil film combined with a silver-based top coat and hard coat that makes it antimicrobial, etch proof, stain proof, and scratch resistant. The film can be applied to surfaces in order to inhibit growth of microbes, which may also cause odors and stains. TuffSkin’s topcoat continuously kills microbial contaminants and resists microbe growth on the surf ace of the film, providing the film with built-in protection without releasing toxic substances into the environment. The active ingredient in the topcoat is EPA-registered and FDA listed. TuffSkin can be replaced as needed based on the degree of wear and traffic.
