Caerphilly, Wales, United Kingdom, 2008/08/20 - Sterilin Limited, the established leader in single use laboratory plastics for life science applications, presents BenchGuard, a highly absorbent paper ideal for protecting benches and surfaces against liquid spills.
BenchGuard has a strong polyethylene coating to one side and when placed paper side up it quickly absorbs hazardous spills, protecting the benchtop, the user and also helping to reduce contamination risks. Conveniently packaged and designed for use as a dispenser, BenchGuard simplifies both cleaning and disposal regimes.
BenchGuard is available in two absorbencies: BenchGuard 400ml/m² and BenchGuard Extra 800ml/m² offered in packs of 50 or 100 sheets and also in roll form. BenchGuard can be used in laboratories across various markets including life sciences, microbiology, radiochemistry and animal research where laboratories are keen to minimise the effects of liquid spills. With its excellent absorbency, the added advantage of larger sheets and an extremely competitive price, BenchGuard outperforms most of its competitors.

Formerly part of Barloworld Scientific, Sterilin Limited comprises of four established product brands: Sterilin single use plastics; Iwaki tissue culture products; Sterilin Silicone Devices (formerly Esco Silicone Rubber); Sterilin Packaging Products (formerly Azlon Packaging).
