Ritek produces antibacterial coated media

Optical media are still the storage media most commonly used by medical institutions to record and transmit patient information. Ritek is therefore the first manufacturer in the world to offer antibacterial optical storage media in order to prevent the spread of pathogens via the transfer of data carriers.

Rarely has health and hygiene awareness been sharpened more than during the Corona crisis. Doctors' surgeries and hospitals in particular naturally come into contact with many germs and can quickly become distributors, so that special attention should also be paid here to the storage media which patients are given to take home with them or go directly to referrers.
Tests conducted according to the Japanese JIS Z2801 standard confirm that the antibacterial formula can inhibit the proliferation of bacteria on the disc. The waterproof printing surface, which absorbs ink when printed by an Epson Discproducer or Rimage system but allows water to bead up, also inhibits the settling and reproduction of bacteria due to its water-repellent properties. In addition, the ingredients of the organic, antibacterial formula have passed the EU RoHS test and have been classified as safe for humans.
