Polygiene plays a happy tune with Warwick Music’s new pCorder
Polygiene® partners with Warwick Music’s new pCorder to bring music to the children of Wales, with antimicrobial product protection
Groundbreaking Polygiene BioMaster™ technology will hit the music rooms of Welsh schools this year. In 2022, Warwick Music won a tender from the Welsh Government to produce a new type of recorder – the pCorder. As school recorders are shared among multiple users, the Welsh Government wanted a way to provide antimicrobial recorders that reduce microbial growth.
To tackle this problem, Warwick Music has joined forces with innovative technological creative Polygiene and is manufacturing the pCorder with Polygiene BioMaster™ incorporated into the plastic body of the instrument. The instruments are injection molded in England and assembled in Wales, promoting work locally for people with disabilities or who are socially challenged.
Polygiene BioMaster™ – Antimicrobial technology for the 21st century
Although the pCorder may be a standard version of the recorder we all know and love from childhood, the inclusion of Polygiene BioMaster™ is innovative. Polygiene BioMaster™ is an effective antimicrobial agent that can be added to plastics, textiles, paper, paints or coatings at any stage of the manufacturing process. Because it is not damaged by heat (like the high temperatures used in injection molding), it can be integrated into the material as an additive, providing powerful antimicrobial protection for the product’s lifetime. This is a perfect solution if you have musical instruments that are used by many children.
Warwick Music is all set to supply 53,000 instruments to schools in Wales. “Music plays an important role in many cultures and can open up new worlds for children,” explains Steve Greenall, chief executive of Warwick Music. “Recorders are a great way to introduce children to playing musical instruments, and pCorders made with Polygiene BioMaster™ antimicrobial technology will reduce microbial growth on instruments shared between children in schools. This means they share the joys of of a story through music can discover and go to be inspired,” he adds.
pCorder tools will be available on Amazon in the UK from January 2023.
Polygiene will also be supporting Warwick Music on Make Music Day on Wednesday, June 21, across social media channels, encouraging people to come together and create music.
