Bindatex’s new Slitting and Sheeting business says that it has shipped its first orders of cut protective film to be used on furniture to help minimize the risk of Covid-19 transmission.

According to the company, the material is durable, non-absorbent and can be easily replaced after each use. It provides a barrier to contamination and there is no requirement to quarantine the item, Bindatex says.

‘We began this shift in capacity in March when we die-cut disks to be used in ventilators to help in the UK wide effort to supply the NHS, so to help the nation get back to work completes the circle after these hard few months,’ said Chris Lever, MD.
