Bio 5 antimicrobial pencils now available to schools through YPO

We are proud to announce that our antimicrobial pencils are now available to schools and other public sector organisations through the YPO website.

The humble graphite pencil has been with us since the 1500s and our new antimicrobial pencils represent probably the biggest advance in pencil technology for the best part of five hundred years… and that is all down to the rather special lacquer coating that we have developed.

We use patented Biomaster technology in our lacquer that means microbes, like bacteria, simply cannot live on the pencil surface. The Biomaster additive also reduces SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19 by 99.7%. Something that has been independently ISO tested and accredited.

Improving classroom hygiene in post pandemic Britain

The recent pandemic, which is still affecting the world, has taught us a great deal about the importance of good hygiene practices and we all want to do our bit to help stop the spread of microbes and bacteria.

The school environment is our main area of focus in this regard and it is why we are busy developing a range of antimicrobial stationery products. Our new antimicrobial pencils being the first of those products to be available after months of development and rigorous testing.

We hope that stationery buyers in schools and other public sector organisations will share our vision and consider using our antimicrobial pencils, which we make here in the UK. This country has a proud history of pencil making and we are honoured to be part of its continuation and future development.

Available now to YPO users

We would like to thank YPO for having confidence in a new stationery brand, particularly in the wooden graphite pencil sector, where there are so many well established and recognised brand names such as Steadtler, Faber-Castell and Bic to name just a few.

Our antimicrobial pencils are available in handy 144 classroom pack sizes and you can find them on the YPO website right here.

There's a lot more to our pencils than simply their incredible antimicrobial properties, so if you are interested in learning more about them, you'll find plenty of information here.

As always if you are someone who shares our values and appreciates quality British made stationery products then we would love to hear from you. Contact us here.
