The autoclave uses high pressure and high temperature steam to effectively kill microorganisms or inactivate biohazardous material.
The potential risks of using an autoclave are heat and steam burns, hot fluid scalds, injuries to hands and arms from the door, or bodily injury in the event of an explosion. If a load of biohazardous waste is inadequately autoclaved, there is potential for human and environmental exposure to biohazardous materials. Polypropylene(PP)sheet is an inexpensive resin that can resist autoclave temperatures. Polypropylene containers are often used as secondary containers to hold materials that are autoclaved.Polypropylene sheet has several advantages. Polypropylene has a high-chemical and corrosion resistance, it's lightweight and rigid, it has high tensile strength, it has excellent abrasion resistance,has a low moisture absorption, it's easy to maintain and clean, and finally it has a long life span.
The perforated plastic sheet usually includes perforated polypropylene sheet(also named perforated PP sheet) and perforated High-density polyethylene(also named perforated HDPE sheet) are usually used for autoclave sterilization plastic payer pads for the autoclave for the food.
