Illiterate? Domtar Unveils Antimicrobial Office Paper

Company says it's first of its kind in North America.

Wite-Out has nothing on this.

Domtar, the big paper manufacturer, has launched what it’s billing as the first antimicrobial office paper in North America, designed to protect against the growth of bacteria, odors, fungus, mold and mildew.

The paper is specially treated with a silver compound that kills most bacteria that come into contact with it. Similar products exist in Europe and Asia, and Domtar says that while the paper was conceived for general office use, its unique characteristics make it ideal for the healthcare, lab, hospitality, education and governmental sectors.

The paper is manufactured under a licensing agreement with SilverCo, a developer of antimicrobial-patented technology.
