By acting quickly to develop Texicryl 13-321, manufacturers will be able to produce more hand cleansers to fight against the global spread of infections and viruses including Covid-19.

Group Product Manager, Mark Stanion says:

“In less than a month, we have taken a concept from lab to full scale production. We are pleased that we have been able to use our expertise to develop a product that is in short supply and will have a significant impact on the provision of hand cleansers.” 

Thanks to the amazing joint efforts of Scott Bader colleagues from across the business, particularly operations and pilot plant teams for making material available at such short notice, the first delivery of Texicryl 13-321 reached its customers.
