CLINTON, Tenn., June 29, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Techmer PM, a Clinton-based compounder and materials design specialist, is proud to announce its latest innovation – CupronColor. This cutting-edge solution is the result of Techmer PM’s successful collaboration with Cupron®, combining Cupron’s copper technology with Techmer PM’s dispersion capabilities to create high-quality materials.

CupronColor now offers customers a broad portfolio of vibrant colors. This exciting development allows customers to leverage revolutionary color and odor-protecting antimicrobial technology while enjoying enhanced flexibility in product styling.

“We were originally only able to produce Cupron® masterbatches with specific colors due to the inherent reddish hue of copper,” says David Turner, Techmer PM’s vice president of design and business development. “No longer having this limitation allows customers to deliver comprehensive color offerings for all their key markets and product applications.”

In addition to offering a wide array of colors for antimicrobial products, Techmer PM can help customers ensure they meet the EPA requirements for being a non-public health claim or assist customers if they want to register with the EPA for a public health claim. Public health claims can only be made with EPA registration. All claims provided are for protecting the plastic parts themselves and are not to be construed as public health claims.
