Eco-friendly & efficient innovations

20 May 2021

MAPA SPONTEX Professional is a worldwide leader in the production of cleaning tools and hand protection products, committed to offering an innovative service and effective solutions.

With more than 80 years of experience, the company's expertise covers the production of tools for wiping, scouring, washing and floors.

Innovation and guaranteed hygiene have always been the focus of Spontex. But today, the company’s goal is also to disseminate and share its environmental commitment with its customers. Customers who, without wishing to renounce the effectiveness of the products, are increasingly attentive to their sustainability.

As part of its Corporate Social Responsibility initiative, Mapa Spontex Professional has launched a new green range of products for 2021 : www.spontex-pro-green.com

The Sponrex range of bifunctional sponge scourers has been extended with the introduction of the new Sponrex 100. With 100% plant based, biodegradable cellulose sponge and abrasive top made from 100% recycled polyester fibres and walnut shells. This product is made completely free from additional colourants, further increasing its sustainable credentials.

This same manufacturing process, of using polyester fibres and walnut shells is applied to the Mercury 100 abrasive range. There are two products available in this range, the Mercury Roll 100 which comes in 6-metre rolls for cutting to size, and Mercury Pad 100 in standard industry size. The new Mercury 100 products exceed even Mapa's own previous standards for scouring efficiency and tensile strength, lasting longer and cleaning easier.

Finally, MF Pro Recycled is a range of microfibre cloths, each made from five recycled plastic bottles. Effective against dirt and grease; available in four colours to avoid cross-contamination having used limited colourant to minimise their environmental impact, they can remove up to 99% of bacteria. Ultrafast drying, has excellent absorption capacity and, according to Mapa Spontex wipes faster than other microfibres on the market. The product can be used with ethanol and has very good resistance to bleach.

This range fully reflects the corporate philosophy of social responsibility. Mapa Spontex initiative focuses on continuous improvement to develop more responsible sourcing, reduced environmental impact and improved social standards, supported by concrete actions with specific objectives set for 2025.

Bertrand Genuyt, Mapa Spontex president & CEO, affirms that: “Manufacturing everyday products on an international scale is a huge responsibility and we must do our part to protect our surroundings. Since every effort matters, we make sure that our actions are focused on protecting our users, our teams and nature.

"Today, we commit to going even further by adopting a process of continuous improvement: ‘Our Caring Actions’.”
