Award-winning hygiene manufacturer, Vectair Systems Ltd has launched a unique, heavy-duty, antimicrobial liner made from 100% recycled white polythene that fits all sanitary units up to 23 litres.
The new Femcare® antimicrobial liners are the result of an exclusive partnership with Addmaster®, Europe’s leading supplier of innovative additives, and benefit from Biomaster®, an antimicrobial additive added during the manufacturing process that uses silver ion technology. This actively reduces the growth of bacteria both inside and outside a normal bin liner by up to 99.99% for its life making it extremely safe to handle.
“We believe our use of Biomaster® powder in a sanitary bin liner is an industry first, so this is a very exciting addition to our product range,” says Paul Wonnacott, Vectair Founder and Managing Director. “Silver has been used as an antimicrobial for centuries. It has low toxicity and works round-the-clock to reduce the growth of microbes and prevent them from reaching dangerous levels. Biomaster® actively protects against bacterial build up from harmful species such as MRSA, E. Coli and Legionella for the life of the liner and also stops the growth of bacteria that causes unpleasant odours, helping to keep washrooms fresh and clean.”
“The Femcare® antimicrobial liners can be used in our popular one-piece Femcare® sanitary disposal system but also fit all other units with a capacity of up to 23 litres, which means customer can benefit from their unique properties without having to buy new equipment. And, because the sanitizing agent is already added, using a Femcare® liner can save them time and money. ”
Paul Morris, Managing Director of Addmaster comments “We are delighted to be working with Vectair, a company which shares our commitment to research and development. Our collaboration has created an innovative new product for the washroom market and we look forward to working together on future products.”
