We are making Dental Practice more environmentally friendly by supplying barriers made from degradable plastic. Plastic barriers have become widely used in dental practice and the health industry to assist with infection control. They are an effective way of protecting equipment and surfaces to prevent cross infection, minimising the use of surface detergents and disinfectants.In our experiences, the only disadvantage to the use of barriers is the amount of plastic used and thrown out into landfill. This is a concern voiced frequently by many practitioners and staff, so we have sourced a manufacturer to make barriers from a more environmentally friendly material. Our products are plastic with TDPA’s (Totally Degradable Plastic Additives) added. TDPA’s accelerate the break down process, once in landfill. The product breaks down within 1-2 years as opposed to 100s-1000s years. We have expanded our product range to include other plastic single use items from the same material. These harder plastic items take 3-5 years to break down. Our barriers have the same look and durability as other plastic barriers used, whilst being less expensive and much better for the environment.

We sell direct to Dental Practices throughout Australia. On average, one patient dental treatment visit uses 12 – 15 pieces of plastic barrier. That equates to a lot of plastic per day, in one dental surgery, going into our landfill.
We provide cost effective, degradable plastic barriers at very comparable prices. The 100% oxo-degradable material used will biodegrade into non toxic end products within 1- 2 years when discarded in landfill as opposed to conventional non degradable plastic products taking hundreds to thousands of years to degrade.
