Clean Show Specials

Several Preferred Suppliers introduced new products/technology at CLEAN 2015. Calderon Textiles introduced the Endurance Series, a collection of 100% Spun Polyester patient gowns, IV gowns, sheets, and pillowcases. Innovative technology enables the products to outlast traditional sheets and gowns, resist fading and have shorter drying times.

ADI unveiled five new initiatives for healthcare and food and beverage. Two are featured in this issue. “The Greenie” a smaller napkin made from recycled plastic bottles which lasts more than 100 wash cycles created a lot of interest. The “Traynap” is a dual purpose napkin/tray liner designed to help hospitals drive patient satisfaction. See pages 6 and 24 for more information on both or visit for a complete list.
WashTech extended additional discounts offered during the CLEAN Show until May 31st for Universal Unilink Members. Call Steve Cash (770) 241-3938 for details.
