Antimicrobial cardholder: Biomaster antimicrobial agent is based on silver ion technology and has three modes of action. When bacteria come into contact with a Biomaster protected surface, the silver ions prevent them from growing, producing energy or replicating, therefore they die.
Unlike some antimicrobial agents, Biomaster is incredibly durable, long lasting and highly active. When added, it is dispersed throughout the entire item and becomes an integral part of the product. Silver is inorganic and non-leaching which means that, unlike organic antimicrobial agents / technologies, it stays within the item to which it is added.

Biodegradable cardholder:  Biodegradable range of holders are made using standard Polypropylene with a Oxo-degradable additive, which once it has been exposed to Sunlight and Oxygen will start to degrade. Once the holder has started to degrade and is no longer usable in normal use, it can be disposed of in general waste. The degrading process continues until micro-organisms have complete eaten away the entire holder and it disintegrates. The Oxo-degradable additive Enables the holder to degrade in 5-10 years of normal use.

Metal detectable cardholders: metal Detectable Holders have a much higher rate of Stainless Steel than other brands, makign them more detectable, as little as a scape can be detected. They have been tested by leading Food processing factories to achieve this.
