Antimicrobial performance verified by SGS
The SGS laboratory in Shanghai has performed several ISO22196 antimicrobial tests on samples produced with the addition of the proprietary technology of Parx Plastics. Samples had been produced via different blow moulding process and proof an excellent antimicrobial performance reaching as high as Log5 and Log6 reduction.
Food-contact compliance, Migration and antimicrobial performance verified
Guangdong Detection Center of Microbiology has been designated as a recommended testing institution for the detection of anti-microbial properties of anti-microbial products and knitwear by the China Industry Association for Anti-Microbial Materials and Products, China Knitting Industry Association and China-Japan MRA. The Guangdong Detection Center for Microbiology has performed ISO22196 and Migration tests on samples produced in China with the addition of the Parx Plastics technology. The migration tests show a perfect compliance with the food-contact standards for Chinese and for international markets. Plus the ISO22196 antimicrobial tests proof a very high antimicrobial efficacy of the products.
