Bacteria Resistant Laminate


Bacteria! Our constant companion

Bacteria Resistant Laminate

It is estimated that the overwhelming majority of living organism on earth are bacteria. They are our constant, invisible companions and many of them are pathogenic. The consequences are infections and allergies that are passed from organism to organism. The more efficient the transmission, the faster the pathogen spreads and unfortunately, our globalised world also facilitates the movement of bacteria.

Protection thanks to our antibacterial laminates [ HPL ]

Our Bacteria Resistant Laminate,  GETALIT® bacteria ultra resistant & GETALIT® bacteria resistant guarantee additional effective protection in the fight against bacteria


They allow a 99.9% reduction in the number of bacteria


We specialise in surfaces and offer you excellent panel materials for almost any application,  and for interior design in particular. And you do not need to forego basic antibacterial
properties.  That’s because almost all of our laminates (HPL) meet the GETALIT ® Bacteria resistant quality standard.

Here’s how the antibacterial effect is achieved


Silver’s antibacterial properties have long been recognised [ silver treatment of drinking water ]. Silver ions [ Ag⁺ ] bind with certain components of the bacteria and block their functioning, so the bacteria die off. Silver ions are added to our laminate products during the finishing process. This results in outstanding properties: the product is effective, non-toxic and does not harm humans or the environment.
