At the ISSA/Interclean - held from 10 to 13 May in Amsterdam - Wecoline will introduce the complete range of Wecoline by Americo floor pads. Every item in this range has been made of the unique Americo Full Cycle base material, so all pads benefit from enhanced bio-degradation.
The Full Cycle material is unique in the world. It makes the floor pads decompose as soon as they arrive in an active microbial environment, such as a refuse dump. This happens in only a fraction of the time needed by the regular, standard floor pads.*
* ASTM D5511 tests show that 90% of the pad decomposes within 14 months, compared to less than 7% of the standard floor pads.
The addition of this innovative formula is on top of the fact that the base material is made of recycled PET material and water-based resins, making the floor pads extra ‘green’. Adding the Full Cycle formula completes the recycling process from start to finish.
Base material crowned with two awards
In 2014 and 2015, the Full Cycle base material has been rewarded with Innovation Awards, presented at the ISSA / Interclean in North-America and The Cleaning Show in London. Now, in 2016, Wecoline can proudly announce that all colours Wecoline pads by Americo are being produced from this high-quality Full Cycle material.
