KernowPrint – supporting the healthcare industry

With the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak now officially declared a pandemic by the World Health Organisation (WHO), an overwhelming pressure is mounting on healthcare professionals within hospitals to help fight the deadly virus and prevent the spread amongst themselves as well as the public.

As part of this daily battle in hospitals around the world, healthcare professionals are constantly cleaning their hands with hand sanitizers and then touching hospital documents as well as washing down emergency room and in-room printed materials with alcohol and cleansers. For this reason, durability, chemical and alcohol resistance will be of priority when it comes to the use of print applications within the healthcare sector.

The use of dry toner synthetics is a great choice within the healthcare sector for the use of a variety of durable print applications that are typically laminated but not all synthetics can pass a critical print durability test.

Standing up to the challenge, KernowPrint is the most tested and trusted material and is also the ONLY alcohol and chemical resistant solution in the market. KernowPrint has become the healthcare’s print partner, delivering durable, economic and alcohol-washable print solutions through a variety of applications including medical charts, name tags, signage and medical laboratory logs.

What’s the difference? The difference is all about the coatings. Utilising a unique coating that provides resistance to most liquids including anti-bacterial cleaners, rubbing alcohol, hospital grade cleaning materials and contaminants, no other material matches the engineered surfaces of KernowPrint’s range of dry toner synthetics.

To show the differences, we printed on a common dry toner platform and did the Alcohol Rub Test in which we left hand sanitizer for one minute. The difference is obvious. If diluted with water at a 1:1 ratio, you can even soak KernowPrint in a bleach solution to remove stains!
