Personal protective equipment (PPE) provides the crucial barrier between our healthcare heroes and their dangerous working environments. Following use, all PPE must be disposed of, placing our custodial and sanitation professionals in harm's way. We must leave no stone unturned in order to mitigate the risks that our essential workers face every day.
GARD™ antimicrobial is here to help.
While the ergonomic design of PPE is key to ensuring the health and safety of our healthcare workers, we need to use every tool available to protect them. The same goes for those that handle and transport the dangerous PPE waste. Our SPTek GARD™ polymer additive provides up to 99.999% antimicrobial protection (a '5-log reduction') and is proven highly effective against major health threats, including dozens of dangerous both 'gram-positive and gram-negative' organisms.
This sustainable polymer additive has a wide range of PPE applications, including but not limited to:
- Face shields
- Glasses and goggles
- Head covers
- Shoe covers
