1. Is Non woven Fabrics degradable?

In terms of environmental protection, most of the current use is Polypropylene Spun Bonded Non Woven Fabrics, and the raw material of the plastic bag is polyethylene. Although the two substances are similar in name, they are far from the chemical structure. The chemical molecular structure of polyethylene is quite stable and extremely difficult to degrade. Therefore, it takes 300 years for the plastic bag to be decomposed. The chemical structure of polypropylene is not strong, and the molecular chain can be easily broken, so that it can be effectively degraded. In general, it can be completely decomposed within 90 days. The reason for the decomposition is that the polypropylene fiber has poor light resistance and is easily embrittled into dust under ultraviolet irradiation.

2. Are all non-woven fabrics suitable for low temperature plasma sterilization?

All-plastic non-woven fabric (PP material) can be used for low-temperature plasma sterilization of hydrogen peroxide; it contains plant fiber non-woven fabric. Because plant fiber absorbs hydrogen peroxide, it cannot be used for low-temperature plasma sterilization. The manufacturer's instructions and test report shall prevail.

3. Can I use non-woven fabric under the vented sterilizer?

The non-woven fabric is suitable for the lower venting sterilization, but it is necessary to do the drying work, because the humidity of the lower venting sterilization is difficult to control, and the non-woven fabric is extremely easy to wet.
