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.
With the demand of car interior comfort increasing, automotive interior features are becoming the main differentiating element influencing buying decisions. According to authoritative research, car interior comfort will be seen as the second important factor when consumers choose new cars. The results of the research also show an expanding need towards interior surfaces with further functions, adding to the overall driving experience. Asked about additional functions of the seat covers and surfaces, 49% of all respondents see a benefit in antibacterial properties.
Leather is the quintessential material of fashion scene. Because of high cost and craftsmanship involved in leather processing, leather represents "luxury." However, the production process of leather will have a great negative impact on the environment. For example, during the production and dyeing process, the main animal leather of cattle and sheep must be made by many chemicals, organic solvents and paints which not only poisons the human body but also produces high-concentration wastewater and organic pollutants. As a result, people turn to choose alternatives eco-friendly products. With the rise of environmental awareness, people found vegan leather is a material that mimics leather but is created from artificial or plant products instead of animal skins.
For example, animal leather is unfriendly to the environment, as it shares responsibility for all environmental destruction caused by meat production and pollution.
Faux leather is pretty bad for the environment, too. Faux leather makes use of petroleum-derived materials, which might include polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and chlorine. PVC containing toxic additives such as lead is harmful to human health while the widespread use of chlorine causes pollution.
Because of this ethical issue and environmental impacts of using animal skin for leather, people turn to choose alternatives eco-friendly products.
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.
We believe to satisfy todays’ needs without endangering the capacity of coming generations, silicones are one of the sustainable biocompatible man-made polymer materials derived from silica, which is the second most abundant mineral on Earth.
