The Importance of Face Masks and Sterilization in Medical Packaging

The United States and many other parts of the world are seeing a shortage of face masks. As a result, many businesses are unable to provide their employees with the appropriate face coverings to protect the virus’ spread. At Pioneer Packaging, we understand how important it is to maintain a sterile environment, especially when working so closely with medical packaging. That is why we have teamed up with a seamstress in San Diego, CA to provide our clients with CDC recommended masks to ensure their safety..

Studies have indicated a large portion of people with coronavirus don’t show symptoms and those who eventually do will have a higher chance of spreading it to others. This could be from coughing, sneezing, or simply speaking to someone close to you. Considering this new evidence, the CDC recommends wearing a cloth face covering in public settings where social distancing procedures are difficult to maintain (such as work environment, grocery shopping, etc.).

As our clients know, we are determined in delivering the best products any way we can. That sentiment holds true with using these newly made face masks. They were constructed with an antimicrobial top fabric that includes the addition of a filter fabric behind it making it machine washable. They also include a pinch wire sewn into the nose bridge for perfect fit. One of the reasons we made these masks was to ensure our clients remain safe during their every day operations. 

Sterilization in Medical Packaging

The importance of sterilization in the medical and scientific industry is vital. That is why there are strict regulations in place to protect those who utilize the medical products. Packaging design is an integral part of the development process and must be taken seriously when working closely with medicinal items.

When designing medical packaging you must consider the right materials and must show a high level of sterilization. The package must demonstrate that it is effective in creating a sterile barrier to maintain shelf life, easy removal and use in the medical field, and that it physically protects and contains the product itself. In order to meet these requirements constant testing is essential.

If your company is short on antiviral masks and you want to protect your employees from catching or spreading the virus, do not hesitate to contact us.

When times change, Pioneer can be there for you. No matter what. Imagine it… Done.
