Face shield – bioplastic
Face shield that covers the face and protects against droplets and splashes. The protection is suitable for use in healthcare as protection against drip infection. The visor is type tested and certified according to EN166, as a category II PPE. The visor is intended for personal use, there is a name field to mark the visor with a name or other designation.
The shield can be cleaned with alcohol or surface disinfectants. Lower CO2 footprint – made from bioplastic. Delivered in a multipack, non sterile.

Improved construction that can be cleaned and can be reused many times. The product is made from several materials, which makes material recycling complicated, the product is well suited for energy recovery. Protective materials in health and care are normally sent for incineration due to the risk that they may be contagious. To reduce emissions of fossil carbon dioxide, the protection is as much as possible made of bioplastics produced from renewable sources. This technology is constantly evolving and improving as the use of bioplastics increases. Over 30% of the product is derived from renewable sources. The use of bioplastics is the best way to reduce the contribution of this product to the increased content of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.
Low product weight and soft foam that breathes
- Reduced risk of irritated skin or heat rash
- Reduced risk of pressure marks or abrasions
Adjustable rigid headband
- The shield stays in place even during rapid movements
- Reduced need to adjust the cover during use
Good optical properties
About plastic and bioplastics
Plastic is not one material but many different materials with different properties. Plastics are hence divided into groups and have designations such as PP, PE, PET etc. Plastics can be hard, soft, tough or brittle. Some plastics can degrade in nature, others are very resistant and durable. Common to all plastics is that it consists of hydrocarbon compounds that are connected in long chains by polymerization. These hydrocarbon compounds traditionally come from oil or natural gas. As we pump up fossil material from the ground, which is then incinerated, the content of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere increases. This applies not only to petrol and diesel but also to plastics made from fossil materials, used and then incinerated. Simplified, there are two ways to reduce the amount of carbon dioxide that plastics contribute with; a) Reduce combustion by reusing plastics b) Make the plastic from biological material Biological material comes from plants that through photosynthesis convert carbon dioxide from the atmosphere into dextrose and oxygen as nutrients for their cells. Different types of plastic have different possibilities for being made from biological material. Some plastics can be made entirely with biological raw materials while others can use biological material for certain parts. Technology is constantly evolving, as the demand for bioplastics increases.
