Virus decontamination alcohol wipes to control the spread of COVID-19

Image of Alcohol flyer

Clydesdale’s cleaning wipes are individually packaged in foil pouches that remain sealed and sterile until they are required.

These products are more relevant than ever in the current climate as all our wipe styles exceed the European Centre for Disease Control’s alcohol content guidance for successful disinfection of encapsulated viruses such as those that cause COVID-19 infections*

Offering between 85% and 99.8% alcohol saturated wipe these wipes can be used to decontaminate surfaces where their is potential for infection.

Both wipes are compatible with cleaning insulated equipment such as hot sticks as well as being used for general decontamination of company assets and equipment before and after contact. Always test a small area of any painted surfaces or plastics to check the alcohol does not damage or remove the surface treatment.

The high alcohol content of these wipes means that it is not advised to use them for hand cleaning as they contain no moisturiser to replace lost oils from the skin unless moisturising is provided from another source separately to the wipe

Each wipe is available as an individual sample, a box of 50 or a box of 144, please contact us for details and pricing.

Flame Retardant or Arc Resistant?

Clydesdale Arc Flash belt
Given the astonishing amount of energy that can be released in an arc flash and the resulting intensity on the receiving surface Clydesdale have always insisted that our products are Arc tested first and foremost.

Flame retardancy is a secondary risk that we always assess when required but, when dealing with electric arcs, always match the type of testing to the risk in hand.

Even the Clydesdale arc flash belt has been tested using an EN61482-1-2, class 2 arc (7kA, 0.5s) to ensure that the Flame retardant material maintains its integrity under the toughest of arc flash conditions.

Team PLF - Extramile 2018 Auvergne Challenge - We made it to the end!

Friday’s ride spent the whole day sat under the great French autumn monsoon and was definitely character building to have to spend just short of 180 miles battling trench foot and hypothermia alternately.

Saturday’s ride where all the hill climbing happened obviously then got really hot and clear and we had a tough but very scenic days cycling.

Sunday’s ride was a time trial against the clock to cover 166 miles and get to Dijon before a predicted thunderstorm arrived in increasingly windy conditions. 

Officially a very mixed bag but we completed it and this year’s challenge was exactly that. The event medic earned his keep this year but fortunately Team PLF didn’t need his services. 

We’d all be eternally grateful if there was anyone who had thought of sponsoring us but didn’t find the time to have a look at our virgin giving account which will remain open for a while yet.

And big thanks again to all those who donated to our causes, Bedfordshire Cerebral Palsy Society and BLISS baby care.
