EcoGuard Recycling Programme

Reprocessing Consumable Products
Save between 15-40% of your glove budget using the Guardline Glove laundry service

The Premier laundry process for consumables that were once considered “one use only”
Whether it be Gloves, overshoes, garments or wipes, Guardline will collect your used consumables and return them
in a cleaner state than when they were originally purchased.

The process starts with the operator discarding their used garment, glove, overshoe or wipe into a specified collection bin as
they exit the cleanroom area
The used Products are then collected by Guardline after a designated period of time, (based on customer usage) and taken to
our laundry plant in Norfolk to be processed
The Products on arrival are scanned using our bar-coding system, sorted into sizes and undergo a vigorous Quality Control
process, where they are checked for stains and pinholes
The Products make their way into Guardline’s class 10 dedicated laundry plant where they are washed and dried
Independent tests have revealed that once the Consumables are laundered in Guardline’s cleanroom Laundry, they are
actually cleaner and more hygienic than when they were first produced
The Products are then re-packed by size and returned, along with replacement for those that did not pass inspection

The Benefits of Laundering ‘Disposables’
Diamond Scientific Carried out independent testing on Laundered Consumables that had completed the Guardline Laundry
Process. They said:
The results for Guardline Laundered Products are very interesting, with the washed garments giving a particulate reduction of
97.245% at 0.3 m, 96.895% at 0.5 m, 93.333% at 10 m and 100% at the 25 m level compared with unlaundered material.

Overshoes – TuffGuard Range
TuffGuard Overshoes
                  The TuffGuard range of PVC Overshoes are manufactured at our Headquarters facility in East Anglia
                  with specifically designed processes and templates that have evolved to provide customers with a
                  superior quality Overshoes. Standard and long length, White and Red Overshoes are available as ex-
                  stock availability, however we are able to manufacture in a range of colours and special sizes upon
                  request.
                  The TuffGuard range of Overshoes suit applications where chemical resistance is necessary, and the
                  user demands an overshoe that will not perish throughout the course of their shift.
                  TuffGuard can help you reduce your volume of annual overshoes by a considerable factor, as they are
                  much longer lasting than competitor brands. Another feature is that these Overshoes can be recycled
                  and used again in conjunction with The EcoGuard Programme. (See Page 9)
 TuffGuard HD Overshoes
                  TuffGuard HD are the Guardline Heavy Duty version of our PVC Overshoe, the gauge is double the
                  thickness of our Standard PVC and therefore the Overshoe is a much more durable, long lasting shoe
                  cover. The TuffGuard HD range was developed for engineers in heavy footwear putting the Overshoes
                  through the most demanding of applications, such as rung ladders.


 TuffGuard NS Overshoes
                  Non-skid Overshoes are designed for those situations where wet or slippery conditions exist. A
                  proprietary plastic resin is applied to the bottom of the cover to improve the wearer's traction on the floor.
                  Elastic thread sewn into the top and bottom of the textile material assures that the cover fits snugly over
                  the wearer's shoes.


 TuffGuard Overboots
                  Guardline Produce a wide range of Overboots in several different fabrics, all providing added durability
                  and reducing particle counts significantly. For more information please see pages 6 and 7

Cleanroom Flooring




                     Cleanroom Flooring – Guardtack Range

                     Guardtack Mats
                     Guardtack adhesive, multi-layered, straight edged mats remove traffic dirt from wheels and dust from the soles of shoes.
                     Available in many sizes - and three colours : white, blue and grey. They are supplied four/eight to a case, 30/60 sheets to a
                     mat. Each layer has a coloured and numbered tab, giving easy removal of contamination and visible record of how many
                     sections remain. The pressure sensitive adhesive contains a retardant to the growth of spores, while adhesive backing ensures
                     the mat remains in place. A frame is available if required.
                     - Mats bearing messages or logos can also be produced.
                     - Reusable cleanroom mats are another option, and an economical method of controlling foot borne contamination. They are
                     made from a revolutionary tacky plastic which contains no adhesive or impregnation. When washed properly and dried
                     thoroughly with a Whiteguard Wipe, or Guardwipe, the mats regain their tackiness (and actually become more tacky after the
                     first few cleanings). The mats trap any dirt or dust touching their surface and particles cannot be removed when the mat is dry.
                     The tackiness collapses on contact with water, allowing easy cleaning. No plasticisers can migrate from the mat, and no trace
                     of adhesive is left on the floor.




                     Guardtack Flooring
                     Permanent, washable, tack regenerating mat designed specifically for the removal of even the finest foot borne and wheel

                     Cleanroom Training
                                           A company's greatest asset may be its workforce - but if that company operates cleanrooms
                                           or controlled areas then that workforce has the potential to be its greatest liability
                                           - Largest source of particles
                                           - Largest source of bacteria
                                           - Largest effect on defect density
                                           In the twenty-first century, no company seriously now doubts the values of professional training and
                                           information programmes to increase awareness, competence and job satisfaction amongst its
                                           workforce.
                                           As Europe's leading single source of supplies and services to the cleanroom and controlled areas
                                           sector, Guardline has long recognized the requirement for training strategies that achieve all of
                                           these aims together with minimal disruption of production and planning schedules.
                                           Institute of Environmental Sciences (IES) research shows that over 40% of all contamination within
                                           these areas is operator generated. It is easy therefore to demonstrate the results of poor or nil
                                           training within these critical areas.
                                           Less defect density. In this world of extremely costly cleanroom products, focussed training
                                           produces an instant benefit.
                                           - Appropriate product usage
                                           - Waste Reduction.
                                           - Reduced Operator generated contamination
                                           - Problem Solving
                                           - Guardline will run an audit of your Cleanroom Processes as they are now, and tailor a training

 Softwall Cleanroom - StripGuard
 Softwall Cleanrooms
Guardline Offer the most cost effective Softwall Cleanrooms on the market

 GUARDtech Softwall Modular Cleanrooms provide an economical, versatile solution to clean manufacturing requirements in
 semiconductor, medical device, and many other industries. Portable, expandable, and easy to assemble/disassemble, these
 Cleanrooms are also available on an accelerated delivery program to meet your tight production schedule!
 Unlike other modular Cleanrooms on the market which require complex suspended ceiling supports, GUARDtech
 Cleanrooms are completely free-standing structures.
 Softwall Support Frame
 The support frame is fabricated of interlocking 2.5" powder-coated square steel uprights, cross sections, and ceiling
 members. Ceiling members are welded to steel T-bars, forming the 2' x 4' bays that support filters and lights. Corner
 reinforcement gussets ensure a rigid structure. Optional heavy-duty casters allow easy repositioning after installation.
 Standard height is 7' measured from filter face to floor (8' 3" overall), allowing installation below a standard 9' ceiling.
 Softwall Curtains & Strip Shields
 Softwall panels are fabricated of heavy-duty, blur-free 40 mil material--double the industry standard--ensuring enhanced tear
 resistance and eliminating the need for unsightly sewn sash weights. Strip shields, made of 60-mil material, come standard
 in 8" widths, with 2" overlap, for easy entrance or exiting. Polyurethane shields are 12"W, 40 mil thick curtains and strips are
 available in three materials, in either clear or frosted appearance.
 Softwall panels and strip shields attach to the support frame by means of a unique noncontaminating mounting system that
 eliminates cracks and seams where germs or particles can collect. Other mounting systems are available.

                                      required.

                       Cleanroom Fogging
                                             A Safer solution to the problems associated with Formaldehyde
                                             Our dry fogging system provides a quick yet highly efficient solution for the sterilisation of
                                             facilities with contamination issues.
                                             The lack of toxic aldehyde vapours result in extremely short production downtime. Typically
                                             the entire process can be completed in less than 3 hours, depending on room size and
                                             ventilation system efficiency, compared to up to 3-5 days with conventional systems.
                                             The equipment we use produces very fine droplets that average 7.5 microns in diameter, this
                                             ensures an even dispersion of the cleaning solution throughout the area.
                                             The small droplet size also has the added benefits of less condensation, corrosion and
                                             surface wetting but at the same time the evaporated vapour will penetrate into normally
                                             inaccessible areas, problems that systems producing larger droplet size incur and thus leads
                                             to a more effective cleaning process.
                                             The sterilant is fully biodegradable and will leave no measurable air residuals once the room
                                             has been fully ventilated.

Pass Box

                       Guardtech’s PASSBOX is designed for maximum protection against
                       contamination. A characteristic feature is the efficient facilitation of transfer of
                       material by minimizing human traffic entering and exiting the Cleanroom.
                       Completely assembled and ready for installation. An economical approach with
                       minimum maintenance required.
                       Guardtech offers the wall-mount type for transfer of compact material, and the floor-
                       mount type without floor base for easy access and passage of trolley.



Air Shower Pass Box

                      Guardtech’s AIRSHOWER PASSBOX is an integrated component of the total facility
                      solutions to overcome one of the main sources of contamination-material. The floor-
                      mount air shower pass box designed by Guardtech can effectively purge and remove
                      particles such as dust and lint on material prior to entry of cleanrooms or controlled
                      environments.

                      minimum maintenance required.


Air Shower
                      The Guardtech air showers remove surface lint and dust from garments of workers
                      entering the clean room without time consuming and counter productive decontamination
                      delays.
                      Based on "fail safe" principles, the air shower remove contaminants from workers and air
                      entering the clean room. They prevent accidental contamination due to premature or
                      mistaken opening of the pressure-sealed doors. Contaminated air is returned through a
                      low-wall prefilter for delivery to the HEPA module. Maintenance and filter replacement
                      are simplified and performed primarily from outside to minimize downtime during
                      servicing.
                      Air showers are available in configurations offering right turns, left turns, and straight
                      exits, as well as 2-way and 3-way entry systems.

Going Green




              Guardline Going Green
              Green Cleanrooms
              The Environment is a growing concern for all of us in the 21st Century, with carbon emission constantly increasing, an ever more
              unpredictable climate, and landfill becoming a decreasing commodity. It seems that Carbon Footprint has become the buzz word
              of the moment, and reducing our own footprint is a task for now, and not the future. Guardline have a range of solutions that can
              help you to achieve reducing waste, and in turn help you to succeed in your mission for ISO14001

                          The EcoGuard Programme
                          Over 4 Billion tonnes of Gloves are skipped to landfill on an annual basis worldwide. EcoGuard is a specially
                          developed programme for laundering items that were once considered consumables, with the potential to half
                          annual consumption globally. The EcoGuard programme caters for Gloves, Wipes, Overshoes, Sleeve
                          Protectors and Garments. For more info please see page 9

                          Cleanroom Fogging
                          The current mode of decontaminating Cleanrooms is with Formaldehyde, a potent chemical which carries large
                          human risks, and proves a real hazard to the environment. Guardline offer a system to replace the use of
                          formaldehyde, which poses no environmental risk, via the methodology of Fogging. Cleanroom fogging also saves
                          valuable downtime, and can be carried out with full equipment left in the room. For more info please see page 36
