KIMBERLY-CLARK PROFESSIONAL* offer a wide variety of Washroom products and systems designed to control usage and reduce waste, Slimroll Hand Towels, Folded Toilet Tissue and Foam Soap all offer cost saving opportunities.
THE HEALTHY WORKPLACE PROJECT* is a comprehensive office hygiene programme which helps engage employees and reduce sickness. For more information please visit: www.kcphealthyworkplace.com/uk.
All Hand Towels and Toilet Tissue are recyclable. However, recyclability only applies to unsoiled product. Contaminants have to be disposed of per local regulations.
We are pleased to confirm that all KIMBERLY-CLARK PROFESSIONAL* paper products (Hand Towels, Facial and Toilet Tissues) are biodegradable, as indeed are all paper products made from normal papermaking fibres (i.e. cellulose fibres).
The speed of degradation is dependent on the conditions under which it is biodegraded.
Evidence shows that paper towels are by far the most hygienic form of hand drying, in 2009 the University of Westminster, conducted a rigorous study into hand drying practices and concluded that while hand towels dramatically reduce the levels of bacteria on the hands after drying, warm air dryers result in a marked increase.
Yes, to reduce risk of blockages we offer SCOTT® Performance Flushable Folded Hand Towels, ideal for areas with drainage issues.
KIMBERLY-CLARK PROFESSIONAL* Facial Tissues are very similar to those we offer to the consumer market, but available in different packaging formats. The Toilet Tissue products do vary some, depending on the product and brand.
Yes, all our toilet tissues are designed to break down quickly in water, avoiding potential drain blockages.
Our Folded Toilet Tissue system is our most hygienic format, with its effective single sheet dispensing, touched only by the user. The associated dispenser is fully enclosed and offers full protection to the tissues, until they are used.
Soap products have a 3 year shelf life before opening, once opened the PAO (period after opening) is 12 months.
The fragrances we use are supported by the material safety data sheets and from RIFM. Where allergy potential has been identified, the use levels are set below this threshold.
Induction of allergy to these fragrances would not be expected. While we would feel that the reaction rate of allergy to the fragrances is low and acceptable, this is based on the general population.
If there are individuals with specific fragrance allergies, please contact our Infofax Technical support team who will be able to support and provide recommendations for allergic or asthmatic patients.
KIMBERLY-CLARK PROFESSIONAL* Aircare products should be used within 2 years from the date of manufacture.
KIMBERLY-CLARK PROFESSIONAL* Hand Sanitising products come in various dispensing formats, including a 50ml handy pocket sized bottle, 480ml pump bottle and 1 or 1.2 Litre cassettes, suitable for use with wall mounted dispensers.
KLEENEX* Hand & Surface Sanitising Wipes, dispense from a mobile canister with flip up lid, from a handy pocket sized pack or a higher capacity wall mounted dispenser.
Both our gel and foam Hand Sanitisers are formulated to be kind to skin, without drying it out. Our KLEENEX® Moisturising Alcohol Instant Hand Sanitiser contains a fast-drying formulation, with no sticky after feel and includes Aloe Vera, Vitamin E & B, leaving skin feeling soft and smooth.
KLEENEX® Moisturising Alcohol Instant Hand Sanitisers are well placed in general healthcare and hospital environments. The only area where it may not be acceptable is in critical areas, such as operating and surgical rooms, where use of higher concentrated alcohol sanitisers maybe required (80-85% vs.75 for our product).
Non-alcohol products are ideal for general public high-footfall areas (with cost in use benefit of foam formulation) and alcohol restricted environments (mental health wards, children’s wards). For use in critical areas, an assessment by Infection Control staff would be required.
The amount per pump/shot is as follows:
The amount per pump/shots is as follows:
2 years from date of manufacture.
Hand sanitisers are considered as ‘leave on’ products which can be used in the absence of water. Dependent on the segment and the protocols in place - they are complementary to hand cleansing and drying.
In less stringent segments hand sanitisers offer the convenience of sanitised hands in the absence of water. The sanitiser is dispensed on the hands and the product rapidly kills bacteria and microorganisms that are present. They do not clean hands. They are used to prevent cross-contamination of physically clean hands.
KIMBERLY-CLARK PROFESSIONAL* WYPALL* X and WYPALL* L Cloths are designed to be used in a variety of environments and applications; in terms of manufacturing areas, the products are very well suited for the transportation and the aviation sectors, as well as general metal manufacturing.
Many of our products have been certified for food contact purposes and we have a special colour coded range of products which work particularly well in Horeca (Hotel/Restaurant/café) and Healthcare.
For further information, please view/download our Wipers brochure.
Wipers guarantee the same quality each time, providing health and safety benefits, with no danger of contaminants, helping to deliver an optimum cost in use. Wipers tend to be presented in handy formats, offering reduction in required storage space, convenience for the user and help reduce waste disposal costs.
Our unique Power Pockets technology provides better absorption, improved cloth like feel and better scrubbing power. Built in pockets help trap dirt and grime quicker and more effectively, leaving surfaces cleaner and reducing waste. Available in WYPALL* X60, X70 and X80 Cloths.
All of our Wiper products are made of fibre or a mixture of fibre & polypropylene. These substances generally would not deteriorate if stored in an appropriate manner. As the raw materials used in the finished product are inherently stable the product will be stable as well, if stored at normal temperature under normal conditions.
We have a new range of antistatic wiper products designed for the aviation industry, which presents the same benefits as our specific cleanroom products KIMTECH * Pure CL4 Codes 7605 and 7646.
Up to 300 times without any chlorine and softeners. We suggest they are washed at 60°C; however 40° is better for the cloth and the environment.
Yes, they can. We suggest 40°C.
WYPALL* X is composed of approximately 85% paper fibres (for absorbancy) and 15% polypropylene (plastic) fibres (for strength). The exact percentages change slightly depending on the grade of WYPALL* X Cloths.
Method of disposal depends on what has been wiped. If they have been used to wipe hazardous material or material which requires special disposal procedures then these must be followed.
Disposal of contaminated waste differs depending on where you are located, so you should dispose of them in accordance with the local laws. WYPALL* X Cloths NOT used with hazardous materials do not require any specialised disposal methods.
The official suggested sterilisation method for KIMBERLY-CLARK PROFESSIONAL* WYPALL* X range cloths is by a 1 hour autoclave cycle at 134°C.
G60 Cut Resistant, G50 Mechanics and G40 Mechanical Protection Gloves are all washable and suitable for reuse. The performance characteristics of these gloves are based on results obtained after 5 wash cycles, in accordance with ISO 6330: Procedure 5a. The test confirms 5 cycles of washing in a domestic machine with standard cleaning agents at 40°C.
EN374-3:2003 (Protective Gloves Against Chemicals and Micro-organisms) is used to evaluate chemical permeation of glove materials. Please note that classifications are applied to permeation breakthrough times of chemicals versus gloves, specific chemicals do not have their own classifications. The permeation time is the time at which 1.0 µg/cm2/min of the test substance has permeated through the test material and the classifications are as follows:
Please visit our chemical protection database which will give you more exact information www.kcprofessional.co.uk/chemicalprotection.
None of our gloves are recyclable, they should be disposed of in accordance with local regulations.
Acceptable Quality Limit is a measure of the quality of a glove in terms of water leakage and other defects of a glove.
This is assessed by random sampling of a batch which is defined according to the batch size and the quantity of gloves to be analysed. The results provide a statistical probability that the result of the random sample, will also be valid for the entire batch-designated by the AQL.
Where a customer places high demands on the product, they will require a glove with a lower AQL.
KLEENGUARD* & JACKSON SAFETY* Industrial Gloves have the following:
G10 Gloves have an AQL of 4.0 for pinholes
G20 Gloves have an AQL of 1.5 for pinholes
G80 Nitrile Gloves have an AQL of 0.65 for pinholes
KIMBERLY-CLARK PROFESSIONAL* does not directly include phthalates in any nitrile or latex glove formulations, and we have no reason to suspect that any of our raw materials contain phthalates.
Phthalates are plasticizers; they are substances added to plastics to increase flexibility. They are used to turn polyvinyl chloride from a hard plastic into a flexible plastic and can be used in vinyl gloves to impart softness and flexibility. Phthalates can leach from the plastics and users can be exposed.
All KLEENGUARD* Apparel is clearly marked with its relevant PPE Type Classification and CE mark.
All KLEENGUARD* Apparel displays standard symbols to indicate which products meet or exceeding the requirements of specific European Standards.
Type Classification is as follows:
Type 1 Gas tight clothing
Type 2 Non gas tight clothing
Type 3 Liquid tight clothing
Type 4 Spray tight clothing
Type 5 Particle protection
Type 6 Limited splash protection/PB (6) Partial body protection
CE Simple – Minimal Risk Protection
(KIMBERLY-CLARK PROFESSIONAL* do not offer Type 1 or 2 Apparel)
All KLEENGUARD* Protective Garments conform to EN-340 recommendations for sizing:
Small Height 164-170 Chest 96-104
Medium Height 170-176 Chest 104-112
Large Height 176-182 Chest 112-120

XXLarge Height 188-194 Chest 128-136
XXXLarge Height 194-200 Chest 136-144
If the garments are not contaminated they can be disposed with general waste. When contaminated, please follow local legal requirements.
Unfortunately we do not offer a coverall that protects against gas.
The KLEENGUARD* A40, A45, A50, A71, A80 Coveralls are all made using anti-static fabric EN 1149-5:2008 for critical areas.
All apparel except the A25 meet the EN 1073-2:2002 for radioactive dust protection, this protection does not cover against radioactive radiation.
The KLEENGUARD* A71 and A80 meet EN14126:2003, Infective Agent protection.
KIMBERLY-CLARK PROFESSIONAL* do not make specific claims regarding low lint levels on any of their apparel range, however some products including the A40 & A45 have reduced lint levels as they have a film laminate construction with internal seams, which reduces levels of lint.
Whilst KLEENGUARD* overboots and overshoes are sold as Category 1 CE Simple, they are produced from the same treated basesheet as in the KLEENGUARD* A40 products, which meets EN 1149-1. However we make no claims regarding anti-static properties for the overboots and overshoes and do not test the products to control anti-static properties.
KLEENGUARD* A40 Overshoes and Overboots (with and without soles) are constructed using the same material as our A40 Anti-static apparel, which has liquid splash and dust barrier properties (suitable for Type 5/6) however in the case of these products it is not intended as primary protection to the foot, and therefore is marked CE simple. The soles on the Overboot/shoe are made from PVC; all products have elasticated tops/ankles for secure fitting.
Our coveralls are designed to be “single use/limited use” garments. This is indicated in the User Instructions – i.e. not designed for washing.
At this time, none of our coveralls are Flame Retardant.
KLEENGUARD* protective garments are made from substances which are inherently stable. Therefore if a product is stored under reasonable conditions and not exposed to extreme temperatures or prolonged exposure to UV light or radiation, then product performance should not noticeably deteriorate. We officially claim 4 years as shelf life.
If a product is stored over a long period of time (for instance, greater than 1 year) a periodic inspection of a representative sample should be made as a precautionary measure. As a standard safety precaution, it would always be recommended that a garment be inspected prior to any use.
None of our KLEENGUARD* film laminate coveralls (A40, A80 and A71) would be suitable for autoclaving. We have not tested this for the other coveralls made from SMS material.
All KIMBERLY‑CLARK PROFESSIONAL* Disposable Respirators meet the European Standard for respiratory equipment EN 149: 2001 + A1: 2009 and carry the CE mark.
Filtering Face Piece (= disposable maintenance-free respirator).
Further classification is related to filtration performance levels as defined per EN 149: 2001 + A1: 2009:
Calculated on the basis of Total Inward Leakage (TIL), this number is indicating the protection level of the respirator under laboratory conditions.
A nominal protection factor of 50 means that the pollution inside the respirator is 50 times lower than the pollution outside the respirator.
P1 Respirators have a nominal protection factor of 4
P2 Respirators have a nominal protection factor of 12
P3 Respirators have a nominal protection factor of 50
The Dolomite Test is an optional test under norms EN 149: 2001 + A1: 2009. The test consists of subjecting the respirator to a breathing simulation in a controlled environment with a known high concentration of dolomite dust in the air. This will ensure that breathing resistance and filter penetration are not substantially affected from the use of the respirator in a dusty environment for the whole 8 hour shift.
Valves have a rubber membrane which closes when inhaling and opens when exhaling. They enable hot and humid exhaled air to be pushed out of the breathing zone in order to keep the face cooler. They also help to reduce breathing resistance; which is particularly important for FFP3 respirators, as they have a thicker filter media.
By adding a layer of activated charcoal to the filter, organic vapours below Occupational Exposure Level (OEL) can be filtered out of the inhaled air. Carbon has a very large surface area due to its porous structure, which gives plenty of space to trap nuisance odours passing through this layer.
KIMBERLY-CLARK PROFESSIONAL* recommend the JACKSON SAFETY* R20 FFP2 Carbon Respirator.
3 years on Moulded Respirators and 5 years on Folded Respirators, counted from date of manufacture, if the respirators remain in the original packaging and adequate storage conditions are kept.
Any use beyond this date will be at the users' discretion. KIMBERLY-CLARK PROFESSIONAL* will not accept any responsibility beyond indicated shelf life of the product.
Minimum requirement according to EU regulation is for an entire shift (8 hours maximum) or sooner if the serviceability is suspected to be affected.
Respirators marked with the letter R (after the filtration performance level) can be reused at the end of the shift, providing that they are kept in the original packaging and away from the contaminated area until worn again.
Reusability requires the on-going assessment of the conditions of the respirator to determine the moment when it has to be finally disposed and replaced.
All our respirators offer basic protection against airborne liquid and solid particles, encountered in fine dust, water and oil based mists and fumes.
KIMBERLY-CLARK PROFESSIONAL* claim that all JACKSON SAFETY* Respirators are latex & Silicone free.
Unfortunately, we do not offer respirators that provide protection against asbestos.
JACKSON SAFETY* Lenses are made from impact resistant polycarbonate which meet European standard EN166 1F.
JACKSON SAFETY* V30 Nemesis and V10 Unispec offer a choice of DIN 3 or 5 shade, with IR/UV protection, suitable for Welding applications.
Yes, the JACKSON SAFETY* V60 Nemesis Rx provides a bifocal lens, with diopters from +1.0 to +3.0 for vision assistance.
Our dispensers are designed to complement any decor offering a consistant coordinated look; they discourage mess, minimise product consumption and increase hygiene standards, whilst offering low maintenance.
