Stickers That Prevent Mold From Factory To Retail

A close up image of mold One of the biggest problems with mold is that it’s everywhere: There are literally tens of thousands of types of mold , and it doesn’t take much besides a moist environment and a food source — like textile, paper, or leather — for it to thrive and take over. Microscopic mold spores exist everywhere including the air. This means that a mold problem can happen at any time during production, storage and shipment as long as the conditions are favorable to mold growth and your products are not adequately protected.

An "Invisible" Solution to Mold
A gentlemen named Martin Berman  spent several decades trying to help retailers understand the massive consequences of mold and how they should avoid it all costs. After working for various companies across Asia for more than twenty years and noticing that mold kept cropping up on handbags, shoes, and other consumer goods from the production process through to the retailers, he established Micro-Pak LTD® in 1998.

Anti-Microbial Stickers
Since the risk of mold can vary greatly from the time a product is manufactured to when it arrives in the stores, these Micro-Pak stickers provide protection against mold when it’s needed the most. Small but powerful, the product is designed so that a certain level of humidity activates the sticker and causes it to create and release an anti-microbial atmosphere that eliminates mold spores.

The stickers are designed to be better than silica gel bags, which often fall out of boxes, require warning labels, and aren’t always effective at keeping mold away. Unlike silica gel bags, Micro-Pak’s paper-thin adhesive stickers aren’t intrusive; they blend right into the box. Most consumers don’t even notice them — and that’s the point.

Anti-Microbial PE Sheets
Versatile, simple and powerful, Micro-Pak® PE Sheets can be used together with your polybag-packed goods. Ideal for items of all sizes—from handbags and equipment to furniture and footwear—PE sheets will eliminate mold spore growth as soon as relative humidity begins to near unsafe levels. They are designed to work faster in high humidity and slower in low humidity conditions. This unique humidity-based activation ensures your goods are fully protected from the threat of mold growth for extended periods of time.

While it started off with stickers, the company has since expanded to other mold and moisture-related products.
