Cromwell Polythene launches scented, antimicrobial tiger sack for clinical waste
21 January 2020
Cromwell Polythene, a specialist in sacks, bags and speciality products for the capture and containment of waste and recyclables is launching a scented and antimicrobial tiger stripe sack. The new product is part of its Sansafe and clinical waste management range.
The tiger stripe sack incorporates Biomaster silver antimicrobial technology, added during the film extrusion process. Silver ion-based antimicrobials inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria, including E. coli and Legionella. This saves time, money and resources, as the bacteria which causes unpleasant smells is unable to grow in contact with the liners. Pine Scentmaster fragrance also helps mask unpleasant odours, both inside and outside the liners, helping visitors to have a positive impression of facilities. These features eliminate the need to add separate antimicrobial products and intoxicating fragrances during waste collection and disposal.
The efficacy of each production run of Cromwell’s Sansafe liners is regularly tested to ISO22196. The 10kg medium duty tiger stripe sack holds the Cleaning and Hygiene Suppliers Association (CHSA) certification mark for plastic refuse sacks. This gives end users certainty that they meet quality assurance standards, are ‘fit for purpose’ and that they are getting what they paid for, including the minimum net weight and the number of sacks in the pack.
The bags are designed for the collection and disposal of offensive/hygiene waste collection, which can be disposed of through Energy from Waste (EFW), incineration or deep landfill. Typical examples of this type of waste include non-infectious used gloves, masks, dressings, incontinence waste, soiled nappies, and sanitary products. The sacks are packed in rolls, ideal for distribution and portion control. 500 pieces are contained by box, with a minimum guaranteed net box weight of 7.43kg.
James Lee, managing director of Cromwell Polythene, said: “We are constantly developing and introducing innovative products to our comprehensive range to aid the recycling process. We’re pleased to introduce this product into our clinical waste family, to help minimise infection risk, whilst ensuring facilities are cleaner, greener and more resource efficient.
“Details of our full, high quality portfolio are available on our recently redesigned website. We have also introduced separate product information sheets, available in bespoke packs depending upon the nature of individual customer enquiries. These are designed to make our response more tailored and more sustainable.”
