Keeping surgical instruments sterilized is one of the most challenging part of the sterilization process in all CSSDs.
By using the Sterdoc Crepe wrapping papers, hospitals can maintain the shelf life of sterilized instruments. Lint and Memory free Crepe Papers prevent any risks of infections.
*. What is the definition of Memory in Crepe Papers?
Usually when wraps or papers are folded, after a while the folded part remains the same. During an operation the tray should be fully opened so the surgeons have access to the sterilized instruments. By using a Memory Free Crepe Paper, hospitals can prevent any contamination during a surgery. On the other hand, the low quality papers have a strong Memory on a tray, and therefore they always return to their original shape (closed). In the CSSD packaging industry, it’s very important to use wrapping materials with NO Memory.
Important features of Sterdoc Crepe Papers:
Sterdoc Crepe Papers are made of 100% cellulose fibers and can be used as either inner or outer wrapping. Crepe wraps are suitable for steam, ethylene oxide, formaldehyde and radiation sterilization methods and are a reliable solution for preventing cross contamination with bacteria.
*. Why we can not use Crepe papers in H2O2 Gas Plasma sterilizers?
H2O2 Gas Plasma Sterilizers utilize Hydrogen Peroxide as sterilant material to create Plasma inside of the chamber. Cellulose based materials, absorb injected H2O2 and the remained concentrated H2O2 cannot create a suitable Plasma phase to sterilize the instruments. For H2O2 Gas Plasma Sterilizers it’s not allowed to use cellulose based materials such as wrapping .
