New biobased nonwoven cloths support CSR cleaning policies
Wecoline has launched an environmentally-friendly range of biobased nonwoven cloths. Available in four colours, the cloths are made from a combination of PLA and viscose, which makes them ideal for fitting in with a Corporate Social Responsibility cleaning policy.
PLA (Poly Lactic Acid) is an environmentally-friendly material, made from organic resources such as sugars from food crops (corn, sugar beet, sugar cane) and wheat or cellulose.
Poly lactic acid complies with the European industrial composting standard EN-13432. Spun-bonded nonwovens, made from starch-based synthetics and produced according to this European standard, are biologically degradable.
The cloths are supplied with the 'OK biobased' TUV Austria (previously Vincotte) logo. This logo has four levels, indicated with stars. The products are rated based on the established percentage renewable materials (% biobased). The Wecoline cleaning cloth has been awarded the maximum four stars and consists for 100% of biobased materials.
Thanks to increased environmental awareness of customers, the market for products based on renewable resources is growing. The Wecoline nonwoven cloth with its 'OK biobased' quality label offers an excellent answer to this growing demand.
"While developing our product range, we take into account optimal cleaning results and minimal pressure on the environment," says the manufacturer.
