PVA UNIQUE APPLICATIONS
The technical properties of PVA allows to create new solutions by taking full advantage of its nature.
LAUNDRY BAGS - INFECTION CONTROL BAG
PVA laundry bags reduce the physical handling of laundry with hot water soluble bags that leave no trace and no plastic waste to be disposed of.
100% safe for the environment and the waste-water stream
Avoids direct contact with dirty or contaminated laundry
Bags dissolve completely in the washing machines
No need for waste management and cost saving
Such as for hospital or commercial laundries, where it requires larger and stronger bags for the transportation of the linen and a more rigorous wash cycle is used.
For smaller amounts of contaminated or soiled clothing from a hospital or care home into a domestic environment, where it will disappear completely in a lower temperature wash cycle.
There is no need to double-bag as it is much stronger and more puncture-resistant than hospital standard water soluble laundry bags, with less blocking, odour etc.. Laundry can be processed safely, quickly and efficiently with less handling.
‘Hot water soluble’ and ‘warm water soluble’ grades available and unlike many conventional water-soluble bags, those are free from sodium alginate and starch – which have been reported widely to cause residues which block filters and contaminate clean linen- and proven to have complete solubility, without residue.
WHY USE PVA FOR LAUNDRY BAGS?
PVA is a based biopolymer that is water soluble, biodegradable, compostable, recyclable, marine safe and edible by all wildlife. It does not create micro-plastics and degrades safely once disposed. It can be used for the production of many products to replace traditional harmful plastics.
