An antimicrobial additive is now being used in both the bottle and the label of products from blow molder M&H Plastics in Suffolk, U.K. Ionic silver can be used in both bottles and film labels to kill fungi and a wide range of bacteria. Silver is said to be food-safe and can be used in SAN, PP, PET, and HDPE. M&H worked with Royston Labels of London to create antimicrobial labels for personal-care bottles. +44 (0) 1502 715 518 • www.mhplastics.com
