COVID-19 has meant an ever-changing market for our customers. At HellermannTyton we pride ourselves in providing solutions to meet our customers’ needs and this current situation has been no different.
At the start of the pandemic we worked with our key suppliers to produce material ranges that are resistant to bacterial growth, to provide the safest products possible.
What does that mean?
Our product ranges including Spiral Binding, Helawrap, FCT and Grommet Strip are now available with an additive that provides the plastic with anti-bacterial properties. Lab tests have demonstrated that these products are 99.9% more likely to prevent the growth of bacteria. Specific tests were carried out on MRSA and E. Coli which are well known pathogens.
By adding this additive to our products we are able to guarantee that bacteria will not be able to survive on the product surface, this is ideal for areas that are hard to reach and clean – for example in factories, schools and hospitals where surfaces may become contaminated on a regular basis.
