The visors are made of 470mic gloss clear Viprint by Welsh firm Lexon, with the material supplied by Premier Paper

Premier Paper supplied Welsh print firm Lexon with 470mic gloss clear Viprint, which it was able to turn into the batches of protective face masks for NHS workers fighting against the coronavirus pandemic.

Viprint is easy to clean and provides solid impact resistance and is also known for its good folding and fabricating capabilities, which makes it the idea choice of material for the personal protective equipment (PPE). 

Maintaining our service levels is difficult in these uncertain times, however these difficulties pale into insignificance when compared to the work that is being done by our NHS staff

Dave Jones, marketing director for Premier Paper, comments: “We are a key supply chain partner to the NHS, government departments, pharmaceutical companies, police forces, local authorities and the food packaging industry, where print media and paper-based systems are a critical part of their day to day operations.

“Maintaining our service levels is difficult in these uncertain times, however these difficulties pale into insignificance when compared to the work that is being done by our NHS staff. We are playing our small part in ensuring that the supply of paper and print media continues, but when the call came in from Lexon for direct support to help protect our NHS workers who are on the front line of fighting COVID-19, then we were delighted to be in the position to offer help.”
