Finalists named for third WOW Innovation Award

Apr '10
Four finalists have been selected to compete for the third WOW Innovation Award competition being held as part of the annual World of Wipes (WOW) Conference, set for June 21-23, 2010 at the InterContinental Hotel in Chicago, Ill.

The annual WOW Conference, organized by INDA, Association of the Nonwoven Fabrics Industry, is devoted solely to wipes, with a concentration on substrates, active ingredients, packaging, market metrics, industry challenges and market opportunities, particularly in Asia and Europe. The WOW Innovation Award recognizes and rewards the industry members who bring new and value-added processes and products to the wipes market.

The four finalists, chosen from products nominated by the industry earlier this year, are:
* Kimberly-Clark ... Kimtech One-Step Germicidal Wipe
Kimtech One-Step Germicidal Wipe is a pre-saturated hospital-grade surface disinfecting wipe with a Clostridium difficile spore kill claim. The wipe is powered by a unique chemistry that combines hydrogen peroxide and peracetic acid and rapidly kills C. difficile spores and numerous other bacteria, viruses and fungi on surfaces. The chemistry is contained in a meltblown wipe with a proprietary patent-pending treatment that keeps the actives stable for 18 months.

* Nice-Pak ... Eco-Pak
Eco-Pak is a portable, soft pack delivery system that holds high-efficacy surface disinfecting wet wipes, which could previously only be packed in canisters. This resealable new package has soft sides, and yet is able to stand on one end, maximizing store shelf impact, and minimizing storage space under a consumer's kitchen sink. This new package provides a more compact footprint than traditional canisters for more efficient storage and transportation, as well as a more comfortable fit in the consumer's hand.

* RPM Technology ... PolyWipes
The PolyWipes are an odorless aqueous nonwoven wipe designed to remove uncured silicone, polysulfide, urethane, epoxy, and virtually any uncured system.

* Seventh Generation ... Seventh Generation Disinfecting Wipes
In January 2010 Seventh Generation introduced EPA registered disinfecting wipes that kill germs naturally using the active ingredient thymol as a component of thyme oil derived from the thyme plant. This product has combined thymol disinfecting technology, green formulation chemistry, and a total chlorine-free processed substrate to create a total solution for quick, easy cleaning and disinfection.

The four finalists will give a 10-minute presentations during WOW and attendees will then vote on the recipient of the 2010 WOW Innovation Award. The Award will be presented during a session on the final morning of the Conference.
