With medical technology advanced, the range of healthcare and hygiene application innovation grows exponentially. Typically they are used either on the hospital ward or in the operating theatre for safety, care and the hygiene of staff, and patients. Infections have estimated to have thousands of preventable healthcare-associated deaths in the world each year. It is a matter of severe concern and is continuously rising pressure on the hospitals to find, better, innovation, sustainable and human friendly solutions.
Fashion always starts with a piece of fabric that is one of the important components. Fabric is the basic of making the outfit determining the overall style and beauty of your dress. A designer picks out the fabric according to the type and purpose of the outfit. Now, Compo-SiL® announces we have been selected to be on the platform by international online database MatériO.
While aircraft and railway vehicles are designed, safety for staff and passengers is the top priority. Safety levels have been increased continually over the years and today all materials used must fulfill the highest passenger safety requirements.
The average yacht is replaced every ten to twenty years. Yacht Upholstery gets exposed to sun, wind, rain, and other weather elements. It’ll probably start to crack, tear or fade in time and need replacing. Deciding which material to use on the yacht can be hesitating, but with the eco-friendly material Compo-SiL®, you can find a marine upholstery that is ideal for both your demand and sustainability. If you’re wondering what marine upholstery is environmentally friendly, here Compo-SiL® vegan leather can help.
Being a parent is one of the most rewarding jobs, but it can also be one of the most difficult. Many new parents are worried about newborns can be infected by bacterial especially during oral stage. Oral stage occurs between birth to about 18 months and an infant gets most of their pleasure from their mouth during this time. This is associated with behaviors like eating and thumb-sucking. However, both of these behaviors are high risk of infection. If parents neglected to clean the environment, the infant might be infected by bacterial. Therefore, parents need to keep the infant environment clean and reduce the risk of transmission of germs that can cause infection is to practice standard or universal precautions during the oral stage.
Now, parents don’t need to worry about infecting anymore. This is because Compo-SiL® provides baby product companies a safer application technology. Compo-SiL® is an antibacterial activity of silicone rubber that provides great protection from E .Coli and MRSA. It shows various applications when it comes to baby products and medical environments. Compo-SiL® technology can be applied to baby mats, changing tables, and highchairs. If you are baby product manufactures, you should be followed Compo-SiL®.
Compo-SiL® also has applications in some of the babycare products. It would not have been easy to bind a silicone sheet directly on the various materials due to the inertness of the silicone. However, it is possible now with Compo-SiL®.
Following the globally ethical and sustainable trend, Compo-SiL® Vegan Silicone Leather is a harmless and cruelty-free alternative materials. The manufacturing of cruelty-free Compo-SiL® Vegan Silicone Leather is sustainable and it doesn’t make any harmful chemical to nature.
Environmental Problems Cause by Leathers
Leather production emits toxic gas and causes environmental problems like water overuse or deforestation. Animal leather products release toxic chemicals during the manufacturing process, and hence bring massive pollution to the environment. Besides, workers are exposed to toxic chemicals, which cause health problems including cancers.
One of the replacements of the animal leather, faux leather, is also harm to the environment. Faux leather products are composed of petroleum-derived materials, which include polyvinyl chloride (PVC). PVC contains toxic materials that are harmful to human health as well, while the widespread use of chlorine causes environmental pollution.
The production of leather hurts not only animals but also the environment and the workers. Afterwards, people find that there is another material choice for the leather products: vegan leather.
Vegan leather is a material that is created from artificial or plant products instead of animal skins. That means there’s no animal during the manufacturing process. It looks and feels like real leather. However, much vegan leather is composed with polyurethane, which has actually raised the same concerns as animal leather about the safety and environmental impact.
Coefficient of Frication (COF) of silicone material is quite high which makes it ideal for anti-slip and gripping applications. Along with high and tunable COF value, silicone versatile, non-plastic, eco-friendly, bio-compatible synthetic polymeric material made from natural silica. It is a sustainable material being less intruding on environment with reduced CO2 emission, with nominal use of electricity, raw material, and water for production in comparison to other plastics. Silicone products are incredibly durable, flexible, stain-resistant, easy-to-clean, and able to undergo extreme temperatures with the other properties intact, gives them potential for long life reusability.
Eco-friendly: Silicone generates energy savings and reduces CO2 emissions 9 times greater than the impacts of production and recycling.
Natural Source: Silicone is a synthetic polymer derived from natural silica, in which its major silicon constituent is the second most abundant element in the Earth’s crust, after oxygen.
Non-toxic: Food-grade silicone products are made without petroleum-based chemicals, BPA, BPS, or fillers.
Durable: Silicone is long-lasting and endures extreme temperature fluctuations without melting, cracking or otherwise degrading.
Harmless: Silicone will convert back into inorganic substances like amorphous silica, carbon dioxide, or water vapor when disposed or incinerated.
Recyclable: Silicone has been proven to be recyclable.
Solvent-free: Silicone manufacturing and production processes are solvent-free, thus ensuring negligible VOCs emissions.
Certification: ISO 14001, RoHS, REACH certifications for silicone raw materials and silicone-based products.
Compo-SiL® is an innovative patented technology invented by General Silicones, making a breakthrough in solving the surface inertia of silicone with other substrates. The modified layer on silicone surface enables further processing including printing, laminating, and foaming, etc particular for various applications.
For examples, Compo-SiL® can be widely applied in textile, automotive, anti-slip products, and other markets nowadays.
Compo-SiL® is committed to the environmental protection mission, and endeavors to promote the environmental management system based on our mission of “Helping improve our life quality and creating a pollution-free environment for our next generation.”
