Manufacturer of water soluble bag manufacturers
A wide range of hot and cold water-soluble bags are available in various sizes to meet customer specifications. These bags are ideal for medical equipment, bed linens and garments, as well as for containing waste materials. They are resistant to various organic solvents, greases and fats, impervious to gases and do not generate static charge. They are also suitable for use in healthcare & hazardous waste facilities, laundries and hospitals.
The key feature of this type of packaging is that it dissolves in cold or hot water, which makes the contents easier to remove from a container and reduces the need for manual handling and sorting. This is particularly important in the case of toxic chemicals or soiled laundry, as it minimises human contact and the chance of infection. It also means that the container can be safely flushed down a drain or into a sewage system without the need for any special disposal arrangements.
Several different water-soluble bags are available, from simple, single-use polyethylene (LDPE) versions to heavy duty, multi-use PVA-based options. Often, these are promoted as an alternative to traditional plastic polybags, with the claim that they do not harm marine life. However, this is a claim that requires further scrutiny, as most sources indicate that PVA-based bags have a significantly higher carbon impact than those made from Low-Density Polyethylene (LDPE), which is what polybags are traditionally made from.
One of the most popular uses for these types of bags is as laundry bags, which are designed to contain dry linens and absorb liquid from spills. This allows the linens to be washed, disinfected and dried without contaminating the rest of the washing cycle. They are an environmentally-friendly and hygienic solution, especially in hospitals where patients are more likely to be infected by bacteria or other contaminants that may be present on soiled linens and bedding.
This type of bag is particularly effective for medical waste disposal, as it provides a safe and hygienic way to collect contaminated linens and treatment appliances for washing and disinfection. It also ensures that the contaminated items are not exposed to staff during transport, storage or cleaning, which can lead to infection. These bags are also useful in maternity wards, where wet linens and clothing can be stored away from clean items. This helps to prevent the spread of germs and other potential hazards to the baby and its mother. Several manufacturers are now producing these types of bags, which are available in a variety of sizes and colours, including clear and red. They are available with or without a printed BIOHAZARD symbol and can be sealed or taped closed. They can be stored in dispensers to make dispensing them simple. These bags are also compatible with a range of reusable and disposable laundry bins, making them an excellent choice for hospital and home use.
