Why choose silicone mask

The main advantage of silicone masks is that they can be "reused" and different from ordinary fiber filter masks. They are disposable products. Although they are slightly more expensive than disposable masks in price, they are better for no masks at present. The original intention of silicone masks is anti-virus and some special environments. Therefore, many old-fashioned silicone masks are buChinay and not suitable for wearing And in the process of normal use, it is estimated that the anti-virus effect can not reach the best effect. Now, with the improvement of product function and design, the function will naturally focus on the prevention of epidemic virus.

From the material understanding, liquid silicone rubber has been used in medical necessities for a long time, and the medical equipment accessories are outstanding. It not only has good biocompatibility and physical advantages, but also has good service life in the process of use. Its tear resistance is relatively high. As an ear band, it has a high survival rate, soft material, and long-term wear comfort. Therefore, the mask is made from However, it is suitable.

 

 

 

Medical grade silicone mask is produced in a clean workshop and qualified according to the standard of medical silica gel. It is copolymerized with high molecular weight polydimethylsiloxane and chain stop agent tetramethyldivinyldisiloxane under the catalysis of catalyst. It has clear appearance, high transparency, good yellowing resistance, not easy to deform and high tear strength, which is suitable for the production of products with high strength requirements.

It is a comprehensive mask body made of food grade high-quality silica gel. The double-layer silica gel edge is used to make it closely fit around the face. The corrugated nose mask can meet the needs of different face types. The five point headband with quick plate buckle and the edge of double-layer silica gel can precisely fit the face without hypersensitivity. The silicone material can seal most harmful gases, and it will not be aged and hardened, so it is easy to clean, Very durable.

    Selenis supports waste reduction pact

    Materials firm Selenis is supporting the Business Call for a UN Treaty on Plastic Pollution.The Business Call is a report co-authored by the World Wildlife Fund, the Ellen MacArthur Foundation and Boston Consulting Group. In a news release, officials with Portugal-based Selenis said that the call outlines why a global treaty is needed to help stop 11 million metric tons of plastic flowing into the ocean each year.They added that Selenis operates in different areas to decrease plastic pollution, developing products with high recycled content and recyclability, as well as promoting recycling and circularity through different associations they are part of, including the Association of Plastics Recyclers. The firm is currently focusing innovation on developing solutions that are fully recyclable in the PET stream. Selenis also is in the final development stage of WEEZEN CE-brand resins, which will supply the heat-shrink sleeves market with a solution that can be recycled together with the standard PET stream classified as 1 in terms of recyclability.Officials added that Selenis contributes to solving the world’s problem of plastic waste, by taking what would otherwise be discarded and turning it into the building-blocks of their products for applications such as packaging, cosmetics, personal care and durable goods.Earlier this year, Selenis reached full production on glycol-modified PET (PETG) resins with recycled content. Selenis began limited production of recycled-content resins at its plants in Portugal and Italy in late 2019. Those materials — under the ECO Series — can have up to 50 percent recycled content. Selenis is owned by investment firm IMG Group of Portalegre, Portugal. IMG also owns global polyester film producer Evertis and is a 50-50 partner with Alpek Group of Mexico in a PET bottle resin plant in Montreal. Alpek handles sales and marketing of material made at that plant.Do you have an opinion about this story? Do you have some thoughts you’d like to share with our readers?

    What are the advantages and protective effects of silicone mask 1

    However, with the consumption of medical materials and protective equipment, the demand and quality of masks have become a hot topic. At present, many people can't buy masks, and some people buy inferior masks. As for the silicone products industry, they also know that relevant enterprises are developing and producing silicone masks, which can be used repeatedly, compared with disposable masks It has a longer service life.

    How to distinguish masks: from which standards?

    From the current situation, of course, the higher the dust-proof level, the better. Now the dust mask must implement the gb2626-2006 standard. Dust masks are divided into kn100, kn95 and Kn90. Among them, kn100 can achieve nearly 100% (more than 99.97%) protection effect on ultra-fine dust. Kn95 grade can be selected for large particle size. The protection effect depends on two aspects.

    One is the filtration efficiency of filter cotton.

    The other is the air leakage rate after the mask and the face match. Therefore, the mask must be divided into size, and the air leakage rate of the mask and the face varies from person to person.

    Dust removal: scientific selection of dust masks certified by gb2626-2006 standard is helpful to prevent lung injury.

    1. Choose compound half mask type. The disposable mask is not suitable for long-term or occupational protection due to its high air leakage rate.

    2. Select kn100 grade. High dust environment and low protection rate will lead to body injury.

    3. It's extremely important that the masks be sized. It is not recommended to buy those so-called universal masks, which are prone to air leakage.

    4. There are two kinds of masks covering the mouth and nose, covering the mouth and nose and mandible. It is recommended to use the latter, which is relatively comfortable.

    5. It is recommended to choose the respirator with smooth breathing. Some masks are designed with double filter cotton and double filter surface, which is relatively smooth in breathing and has a long service life.

    6. It is suggested to evaluate the quality, grade, comfort and economy of occupational protection, and choose a good mask to effectively prevent pneumoconiosis.

    Kickstart: It's a hot M&A market for … labels?

    One trend we’ve noticed at Plastics News is an usual number of ownership changes for label making companies, a niche of the plastics film and packaging industry that usually doesn’t see a lot of attention.Private equity firm just announced a deal to buy two label suppliers — Multi-Color Corp. of Cincinnati and Elk Grove, Ill.-based Fort Dearborn Co. — merging them into a $3 billion business it says will be “the world’s largest label solutions company.”In June, it was investment firm Mason Wells doing the buying, closing an acquisition of and its sister company, I-Graphics LLC. KDV is a label converter for a diverse set of consumer end markets including beverage, food, household cleaning and personal care with a headquarters plant in Waukesha, Wis., and another facility in Loveland, Colo. of Buffalo Grove, Ill., picked up Target Labels & Packaging LLC of North Salt Lake, Utah, in May for an undisclosed price. The company makes flexographic and digitally printed, laminated and converted packaging labels, as well as rollstock and pouches.Also in May, picked up Singapore’s Lux Global Label, providing it $7.5 million in new business in Asia.In April, Virginia-based , part of Main Post Partners, acquired Total Label, with locations in Whitefish, Mont., and Memphis.Granted, there are other parts of the plastics industry that have seen more M&A activity, but the rising interest in label makers stands out.Also of note, if you’re a big fan of M&A reporting, the July 12 issue of PN will include Frank Esposito’s coverage of the big deals and trends of the first half of 2021. The plastics industry, of course, isn’t the only one out there having problems recruiting workers.Our sister paper Crain’s Chicago Business has a story about Midway Airport’s job fair at the end of June seeking people to fill openings at shops, restaurants and other sites within both Midway and O’Hare airports.It expected about 100 people to show up. Instead, it drew five.”It’s horrible,” Robert Kenney, manager of Nuts on Clark, told Crain’s Chicago. The snack food business needed 10 workers for its facilities at both airports. Instead it is operating with a “skeleton staff” while it struggles to hire more. A student at Brunel University London took home the top award with a simple polyproypylene shield that will help farmers treat crops for pests without impacting nearby plants.Pol Blanch said his D-Shield was inspired by his interest in agriculture and the rural issue of how to apply pesticides safely to vital crops.The shield is semitranslucent and foldable. When attached to the nozzle of a backpack sprayer, it helps to block pesticides and other agricultural chemicals from spreading to neighboring rows.Other top awards went to a hand-held system to check for water safety and a polycarbonate gas cannister for outdoor camp stoves. Do you have an opinion about this story?
