PORCARI, Italy , May 19, 2020 (Press Release) -Sofidel, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of tissue paper for hygienic and domestic use, continues to innovate and diversify its solutions for personal hygiene and cleaning public spaces and the workplace, with new products developed specifically to guarantee proper hygiene thanks to the antibacterial, antimicrobial and sanitizing features of the active ingredients used.

Sofidel’s Papernet product line – dedicated to the Away-from-Home market – offers a “Hygienic Closed Loop”: Papernet Defend Tech, the complete range of solutions for improved daily hygiene standards in public spaces and workplaces (including offices, hospitals, restaurants, cafés, hotels etc.).

The hygiene issue is one of the Group’s key concerns, especially now, when the Covid-19 pandemic has focused the public’s attention – thanks to the efforts, among others, of the World Health Organization (WHO) and public health authorities worldwide – on using disposable paper products to ensure proper personal hygiene and cleanliness in the workplace and at home.

Papernet Defend Tech is a system of specifically designed products: hydroalcoholic gel with over 70% alcohol, antibacterial dispensers, antibacterial plastic bins, antimicrobial soap, disposable tissue paper with antibacterial active principles (hand towels, interfolded toilet paper, wiper rolls). The product range also includes door tissue hand towels to protect freshly washed hands when touching surfaces like door handles and taps.

Papernet Defend Tech offers a fully-fledged “hygiene system” for communities, workplaces and public spaces to best maintain the hygiene of Away-from-Home spaces and protect users who use them.
