PDI Launches New Disinfectant Products – Nonwovens Industry Magazine https://continentalmag.com/pdi-launches-new-disinfectant-products-nonwovens-industry-magazine/ Tue, 08 Mar 2022 15:14:48 +0000 https://continentalmag.com/pdi-launches-new-disinfectant-products-nonwovens-industry-magazine/ PDI has announced the dual launch of innovative new disinfectants to help infection prevention professionals in the fight against the increase in hospital-acquired infections (HAIs) as well as the ongoing battle against Covid-19.

PDI has announced the dual launch of innovative new disinfectants to help infection prevention professionals in the fight against the increase in hospital-acquired infections (HAIs) as well as the ongoing battle against Covid-19. As part of a tiered approach, the new products, Sani-24 Germicidal Disposable Wipes, Sani-HyperCide Germicidal Disposable Wipes and Sani-HyPerCide Germicidal Spray, further support PDI’s commitment to help prevent infections and to promote health and well-being.

The Sani-24 wipe is the first and only EPA-registered disinfectant that uses Continuously Active Disinfectant (CAD), a breakthrough technology developed by a leader in antimicrobial solutions, Microban. CAD provides protection against a wide range of pathogenic organisms in one minute of contact time, while leaving a protective layer of disinfectant on the surface as it dries. This antimicrobial shield will continuously kill ESKAPE pathogens, which are responsible for more than 40% of HAIs in healthcare settings, as well as SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes Covid-19.

“With ongoing challenges to control and prevent infections in healthcare settings, the Sani-24 wipe is an important addition to our innovative portfolio of disinfectants that help maintain a clean and safe environment,” said Jake Watts, vice- President, Upstream Marketing, PDI. “Given PDI’s long tradition of pioneering infection prevention solutions, we are proud to offer healthcare facilities a solution that protects surfaces and equipment from recontamination around the clock.”

Sani-HyperCide Sanitizer, available in wipe and spray formats, is a new, powerful, ready-to-use cleaner with a bleach-free hydrogen peroxide formula effective against more than 20 HAI-causing microorganisms, including highly contagious and difficult microorganisms – to eradicate pathogens, Clostridioides difficile (C. diff4), Candida auris (C. auris) and norovirus, as well as SARS-CoV-2. Designed as an alternative to bleach-based disinfectants, the Sani-HyperCide Wallet offers easy-to-use and effective one-step cleaning and disinfection used for daily, terminal and epidemic cleaning, compatible with most materials and surfaces, and requires no mixing or dilution. Its innovative formulation and versatility improves overall time effectiveness and reduces the risk of uniform fading as seen with whitening products.

Recently, hospitals and healthcare facilities have experienced an alarming increase in serious and emerging pathogens. In fact, a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) report showed that after years of decline, US hospitals saw a significant increase in HAIs in 2020, largely due to the Covid-19 pandemic. . The CDC has also considered superbugs such as C. diff and C. auris as urgent threats to the US healthcare system due to their highly contagious nature, high mortality rate and resistance to treatment.

“Today’s vulnerable healthcare environment has created an urgent need to strengthen infection prevention programs to better protect patients and staff,” says Watts. “Multiple layers of defense, including effective and easy-to-use disinfectants, will continue to be essential to help prevent infections, reduce costs and improve care.”

As part of its ongoing commitment to developing sustainable products that meet the needs of its customers, Precision Textiles, a leading supplier of coated fabrics, nonwovens and laminations to the bedding, automotive and health, launched a new product called PurLoft to help manufacturers meet consumer demand for natural, more sustainable mattresses.

PurLoft is an eco-friendly alternative to 100% synthetic fire barriers for bedding products. It is offered in different weights and made with renewable wool fibers, which are naturally flame retardant. Incorporating wool directly under the sleep surface provides a durable, high-performance alternative that not only meets FR standards, but also creates air pockets, which act as natural insulators to help regulate body temperature. PurLoft also offers superior moisture management as well as odor and allergen protection. Additionally, the naturally crimped wool fiber helps the products retain their shape longer, making them more durable.

“We have always been at the forefront of sustainable development. Our R&D team continues to work with this goal in mind and has once again developed an innovative solution, backed by service and quality, to demonstrate our continued commitment to the environment with products that help meet the needs of our customers,” said Scott Tesser, CEO. precision textiles.

“Wool’s inherent flame retardant properties make it a very effective and environmentally friendly solution for an FR barrier product,” says Keith Martin, vice president of Precision Textiles. “Wool helps to wick moisture away from the body. Unlike many synthetic fibers where the buildup of sweat can become a breeding ground for bacteria, the natural breathability of wool reduces the risk of the mattress giving off unpleasant body odors. We not only developed a more natural FR solution, but also a more comfortable sleeping experience.

Time to grow up?

For every successful small business, there comes a time when decisions must be made about the best path to funding growth.

Whether your business needs a cash injection, a new location, an equipment upgrade or is ready for expansion, there are a range of options to help you get you where you need to be financially. However, each company’s needs may be different, requiring its own strategy and approach.

Here’s how you can match your small business’ financial needs with options to fund its future.

Focus on your business needs

While this seems like an obvious first step, it’s easy to lose sight of what your small business really needs to take the next steps. Take a step back and look at your business plan and finances from a broad, long-term perspective, and not just here and now.

Having a long-term plan in place will help you and your lender determine the best loan options for your specific needs. Ask yourself how this loan will make you more profitable, better positioned relative to your competitors, and give you the agility to grow your customer base or your product or service line.

Avoid the one-size-fits-all trap

Once you have your plan ready, it’s time to figure out which type of loan is right for you. It’s important to remember that it’s okay to have more than one loan for your business, as long as you have the sources of income and cash flow to repay them.

Talk to your lender about all of your options based on your plan, and don’t just focus on one or two loan types that may be less favorable to you in the long run.

Find the right partner

As mentioned, there are many options for financing your small business. Look for lenders who will work with you and advise you on the different options. Your first option may be the best, or some additional discussions may lead to loans you may not have considered before that help you execute your plan more effectively.

Do your homework

While your lender should provide details of your loan options and help you choose the best solution(s), I recommend that you have at least a basic understanding of common small business financing options, including:

• Small Business Term Loans — Term loans offer fixed or variable rates for up to 10 years and can be used for a variety of needs, including working capital, vehicle purchases, debt refinancing and more. Additionally, some lenders offer “express” loans that can be approved quickly with lower amounts borrowed and shorter terms, a great option for busy entrepreneurs and small businesses that need quick and easy access to finance. ‘silver.

• Small Business Lines of Credit — Lines of credit are ideal for providing cash flow if your business experiences seasonal shifts in working capital, as well as unexpected changes or fast-moving business opportunities that you want to take advantage of.

• Small Business Administration Loans (SBA) – SBA 7(a) loans are a popular option due to their low cash outlay, long repayment terms, and government backed support, allowing for flexible credit requirements for borrowers who have difficulty obtaining a loan. traditional bank financing. SBA 7(a) loans can be up to $5 million and offer repayment terms of 10 to 25 years at modest rates.

• Equipment finance loans — Whether your small business needs equipment or sells equipment, effectively financing these purchases and transactions is essential. There are even tax advantages to using the financing to purchase equipment or software for your business!

• Small Business Home Loans — Buying the property where your business is located is an attractive option for many small business owners because it establishes cost certainty, can generate revenue and reinvest in your business. Additionally, these loans have fixed rates of up to 20 years and terms of up to 25 years, facilitating long-term growth plans while building equity and value.

Wherever your small business is on its growth journey, stay connected with your lender and business support system, including tax and legal professionals, to build a cohesive team ready to help when the time comes. came for you to seek financing.

Ontex, a leading provider of personal hygiene products and services in over 110 countries, has officially submitted its climate targets to the Science-Based Target Initiative (SBTI), an initiative supported by the Belgian Alliance for climate action (BACA). BACA is a community of organizations based in Belgium who choose the path of scientific objectives. These goals provide companies with a clearly defined path to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, helping to prevent the worst impacts of climate change.

Ontex is committed to achieving carbon neutrality by 2030. The company will reduce its own greenhouse gas emissions (also known as scope 1 and 2 emissions) by 50% by 2030, compared to the baseline year 2018. Ontex aims to achieve these goals through energy savings, on-site renewable energy generation, purchasing energy from renewable sources, and carbon offsetting through reforestation projects.

The Belgian personal hygiene group also aims to reduce emissions from its global supply chain (scope 3 emissions) by 25% by 2030, compared to a baseline year of 2020. Ontex aims to reduce carbon emissions in its supply chain by cooperating with its suppliers and focusing on sustainable product design and more efficient transportation. For example, suppliers are asked to indicate how they reduce their emissions to Ontex on an annual basis. Ontex will report on this combined supply chain progress as part of its annual report.

Ontex’s 19 factories on five continents currently run on more than 70% renewable energy. This includes its own energy production with rooftop solar installations in Spain, Belgium, Mexico and a new solar installation in Italy, which is the country’s largest solar installation for on-site electricity consumption.

Ontex also seeks to reduce the impact of emissions caused by the incineration of used diapers (scope 3), by carrying out projects on the compostability of its diapers. Energy savings and other measures reduced Ontex’s own carbon emissions (scope 1-2 emissions) by 15% in 2020 compared to 2018.

“Climate change threatens to disrupt every aspect of our lives, creating negative environmental impacts, strains on food supplies and socio-economic instability. We consider achieving climate-neutral operations by 2030 and reducing carbon emissions through our supply chain to be critical to our long-term business success,” says Annick De Poorter, Executive Vice President of ‘Ontex for sustainability and innovation.

Ontex submitted its targets in December 2021 and expects them to be validated by the Science-Based Target Initiative in 2022. Ontex regularly discloses its company-wide emissions and transparently reports progress towards its objectives on an annual basis. The next update will be given in April 2022, when Ontex’s 2021 annual report is published.

Housing finance companies will closely monitor all-in-one real estate players through 2022 as they continue to gain momentum, according to one recent Arizent survey.

More than half, or 54%, expect one-stop shops, in which the purchase of residential real estate is centralized with associated services included, to be the biggest potential disruptor to the industry over the past three years. coming years, and residential real estate finance companies are in the process of determining how to position themselves in light of this change.

The mortgage industry respondents to the Arizent survey came from both non-banks (29%) and banks (42%) and also included mortgage brokers (15%), mortgage insurance companies (7% ), mortgage technology providers (5%), and government and title insurance professionals. (2%).

“Some mortgage companies don’t have the capacity to offer multiple products, but what they will increasingly do is offer multiple ancillary services around their core offering that these companies can use.” said Allen Price, senior vice president of BSI Financial. “These are the matches that we will see in 2022, the central point being a one-stop-shop. Everyone is moving towards this kind of model.

Other potential disruptors include cash buying programs (25%) and “iBuyer” companies that offer algorithm-based instant deals for real estate online (21%).

However, since the time of the survey, one of iBuying’s biggest players, Zillow, has announced his departure from this market due to valuation issues this year. But some mortgage professionals interviewed for this article said they expect iBuying to rebound next year. In light of Zillow’s failure, the iBuyers still in the game are likely to make adjustments that address algorithmic pricing issues and bring them back into full force in 2022, Price predicted.

“I think they are going to solve this problem and solve the question of the evaluation,” he said.

If this were to happen, the likelihood of real estate companies becoming trading partners in the mortgage industry could increase in cases where the former do not have internal financing units. In the years to come, they could increasingly serve as referral partners for lenders and look to service providers to help them manage their housing-related cash flow, Price said.

“It remains to be seen how big it will be in the market, but the iBuyer model is definitely a disruptor and it’s here to stay,” Price said.

The extent of growth that will emerge among real estate innovators over the next year may depend on how public policy affects the market, supply, and financing conditions for low-cost housing.

Newsmax has been criticized for describing Vladimir Putin as the “ruler of the world” on the cover of its magazine.

The December issue of newsmax magazine puts the Russian president on its cover, with the line “Vlad the Great” and a claim that he is the de facto leader of the world now that Donald Trump is no longer in the White House.

The magazine, which was published as President Joe Biden spoke with Putin on Tuesday about fears that Russia is planning to invade Ukraine, was met with criticism online.

Rep. Adam Kinzinger, a Republican from Illinois, tweeted: “If this is true then Newsmax should really admit this is new Russia Today propaganda.”

Ron Filipkowski, the Republican attorney who resigned from a Florida state commission to protest a police raid on the home of data scientist Rebekah Jones in December 2020, wrote: “For anyone who thinks Newsmax is anything but Russian disinformation, here is the cover of Newsmax Magazine‘s December issue.

“Hundreds of thousands of MAGA receive news from Putin every day.”

Political pollster Josh Jordan wrote: “Newsmax going all out on Putin is…exactly what you’d expect from a publication aimed at the MAGA base.”

In a statement to promote its December issue, Newsmax said, “He’s evil, he’s cunning and he’s the most powerful man alive.” The magazine also promised to portray the Russian president as “you’ve never seen him before – and it will change the way you view one of the world’s most feared superpowers.”

The cover story, written by investigative journalist Kenneth R. Timmerman, would describe Putin’s goal of “exploiting every opportunity to weaken the United States and its allies,” as well as discussing his private life. and her alleged love children, according to the statement.

Talk to Newsweek, a spokesperson for Newsmax, which runs the monthly magazine as well as a cable news channel and website, said: “Newsmax MagazineThe December report is titled “Putin’s War on the West: Russian Leader Exploits Every Opportunity to Weaken the United States and Its Allies.” This investigative report paints a disturbing portrait of a dangerous leader and regime.

newsmaxThe cover of ‘Vlad the Great’ is a modern Russian czar who, after Trump, finds no world leader to hold him in check.”

After the Biden-Putin talks on Tuesday, Jake Sullivan, the president’s national security adviser, said he warned Putin that the United States might take more drastic action than seven years ago when Russian troops annexed the territory of Crimea to Ukraine.

The incident, which occurred while Biden was vice president under Barack Obama, led to the imposition of a number of sanctions against Russia. Moscow, however, refused to return the territory.

“I’m going to look you in the eye and tell you, like President Biden looked President Putin in the eye and told him today, the things that we didn’t do in 2014, we’re ready to do. do now,” Sullivan told reporters after the two leaders met. virtual meeting.

“Now, in terms of details, we would prefer to communicate this directly to the Russians, not negotiate in public, not telegraph our moves. But we are laying out in detail to the Russians the measures we have in mind.”
