Covestro and Metrex collaboration doubles down on powerful disinfectants in healthcare settings

Excerpt: Covestro materials are used to form numerous life-saving and life-enhancing medical devices, while Metrex’s disinfectants are widely used throughout the healthcare industry.

The two companies jointly tested a variety of materials and disinfectants to demonstrate the compatibility of Covestro polycarbonates with common disinfectants, including Metrex’s CaviCide™, CaviWipes™ Bleach and CaviWipes™ 2.0. CaviWipes 2.0 is the latest surface disinfectant offering from Metrex and it fully qualifies for the EPA’s rigorous Emerging Viral Pathogen Claim[1]. More information can be found here.
