in a recycled plastic bucket: sustainable SCRUBS® innovation at the Interclean

Circular economy is an important part of many sustainability strategies. The hand cleaner wipes brand SCRUBS from ITW has now presented its own contribution at the Interclean in Amsterdam: From now on, all buckets of the popular SCRUBS IN-A-BUCKET product line will be made from recycled plastic – immediately recognisable by a new design. After last year’s market launch of the plastic-saving refill pack, this is the next sustainability innovation from the manufacturer which produces the wipes in their German facility in Eislingen/Fils.

In the field of professional consumables and cleaning agents, environmentally friendly, resource-efficient, and climate-friendly products are gaining momentum because sustainability is increasingly becoming a decisive procurement criteria. In the segment of professional grade wet wipes, SCRUBS® showed an important sustainability innovation at the professional cleaning trade show Interclean in Amsterdam: All buckets of SCRUBS IN-A-BUCKET® with 72, 30, and 15 wipes are completely switched over to recycled plastic in the coming weeks, which will also be fully recyclable.

SCRUBS® sets the benchmark for sustainability
Users automatically benefit from the sustainable innovation now the entire production is switched to the new buckets and can be easily recognised with their new design.
“For circular economy to work, three conditions must be met: firstly, the basic material must be recyclable, secondly, the recycled plastic must find buyers, and thirdly, the product made from recycled plastic must itself be recyclable again – we have taken all this into account with our new SCRUBS® buckets,” says Dr. Lisa Marholt, product manager at SCRUBS supplier ITW Industrial Solutions in Eislingen/Fils, Germany. “By converting our total production, we make it particularly easy for our customers, as everyone then automatically benefits from the increased sustainability.” Since last year there has been a refill pack for the bucket with 72 wipes that saves more than 90% plastic when refilled. The refill pack is compatible with the new bucket as well.

Plastic tax savings and reduced bureaucracy
Italy introduces it in a very complex form from July 1, Spain and the UK already have it: Taxes on single-use plastic packaging made of synthetic fresh plastic. Since the new SCRUBS® buckets are made of recycled plastic, they do not fall under these taxes or no longer do so.

The ultra-strong wipes for hands, tools, and machines
The pre-moistened hand and universal cleaning wipes SCRUBS® are a cosmetic product and are professional grade helpers in many industrial and craft businesses. They remove and trap dirt and soil such as oils, grease, tar, paints, lubricants, adhesives, inks and dyes, soot, and asphalt without the use of water from hands, tools, and machines. One side of the blue wipes with orange scent has a rough surface for optimised cleaning of embedded soils without scratching; the other side is soft for gentle hand cleaning. With their NSF E4 certification, the SCRUBS® hand cleaning wipes are preferred for use in the food and drink industry on machines located in the immediate vicinity of food production lines.

Improved Rocol EASYLINE® EDGE line marking paint slahes downtime, reduces waste and gives even sharper lines

EASYLINE® EDGE has long set the standard in professional line marking – available in a rich palette of nine vibrant colours, from high visibility yellow to opaque white, the unique traffic-grade epoxy formulation is durable enough to resist the challenges of general chemicals and cleaning agents, ensuring that it maintains integrity even in demanding environments.

The new quicker drying formulation, developed by the chemists within the innovation team at ROCOL, has a higher output spray, which makes it touch dry within eight minutes, and traffic-ready in 30 minutes. Dramatically cutting downtime when essential line marking is required.

The team has also increased the capacity of their cans to hold up to 100% more paint without increasing the size of the can – this means that there is less waste and requires less frequent purchasing.

Improved EASYLINE® EDGE now offers even greater precision when applied using the innovative line marking machine. The machine creates straight and curved lines of outstanding definition without the need for tools and offers customisable line widths, advanced masking plate design and adjustable rear stabilisers to help in tricky corners all ensure a flawless finish.

Phillip Clarkson, Senior Development Chemist at ROCOL said: “Line marking inevitably causes disruption. From factory floors to playgrounds, staff car parks to interior waymarking – maintenance teams need to work quickly, accurately and be confident that the job will be right, first time and downtime can be kept to a minimum.

“EASYLINE® EDGE has always been the best – but our team continues to strive to make it even better. Its creation is testament to the relentless dedication our innovation team places into solving real world problems for our customers.”

The ROCOL team will be hosting a webinar to demonstrate EASYLINE’s enhanced formula to their customers. You are invited to attend the demo to experience first hand the incredible quality product that’s setting a new benchmark for aerosol line marking paints.
