The World's First & Only Playing Cards Enhanced with Microban® Antimicrobial Technology

AMPC Global (Antimicrobial Playing Cards Global) is a leading manufacturer and supplier of playing cards. With a worldwide distribution network, the company consistently aims to push the envelope in the entertainment industry, creating quality playing cards that facilitate enhanced gaming experiences.

AMPC Global was the brainchild of Greg Wolfenden, CEO of accessories company Silvermoon Creations. After working with several antimicrobial technology companies who failed to deliver on expectations, Greg approached Microban International. Microban’s team of experienced scientists then developed a durable and effective antimicrobial treatment that is added to the playing cards at the stage of manufacture. The result - one of the biggest innovations in plastic playing cards since their invention in the 1930s.

Don't Play Dirty

Unlike disinfectants, Microban® remains active 24/7 and for the expected lifetime of the treated playing card. The technology works by penetrating the cell wall of any contaminating bacteria, and inhibits their ability to grow and reproduce. The result is a playing card that stays cleaner, fresher and looking better for its expected lifetime.

The addition of Microban® antimicrobial product protection serves to enhance the quality of AMPC Global playing cards. It also helps to minimize the risk of cross contamination and delivers peace of mind for the people that use the cards.

Commitment to Safety & Sustainability

By choosing to incorporate Microban® antimicrobial technology into its plastic playing card range, AMPC Global is demonstrating its commitment to safety and sustainable product development.

  • Contain regulated technology: The biocidal active components of the Microban® antimicrobial additives utilised by AMPC Global are notified with the EU Biocidal Products Regulation (BPR) No 528/2012 and are registered with the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Microban® antimicrobial technologies have undergone extensive independent laboratory testing and have a long history of safe use.
  • Have an extended functional lifetime: Built-in Microban® technology extends the functional lifetime of the playing cards by providing an additional degree of protection against odor-causing and staining microbes. This offers consumers better value for money and lowers the risk of premature product disposal.
  • Easier to keep clean: Built-in Microban® product protection may allow users to clean the surface of the playing cards with 'greener' cleaning solutions, as opposed to harsh chemical disinfectants. This benefit ultimately lends itself to higher levels of water conservation.

Redefining the Future of Plastic Playing Cards

AMPC Global officially opened on June 1st 2019 and the company has already started working with several casinos, a TV network, and major retailers. Greg Wolfenden is confident that casinos worldwide will see the immense benefits of using antimicrobial-protected playing cards, especially in an age where antibiotic resistance and infection prevention are such prominent themes. In his recent interview with Casino Life, Greg commented:

"Not only do Medicus playing cards resist the growth of harmful bacteria, but they also offer added protection for your reputation. The rise in antibiotic-resistance means we all have a responsibility to help reduce the presence of harmful bacteria. Casinos understand this and are taking steps to be proactive."
