Compressed cellulose sponge product, Aka pop up sponges are formed by the compression of ordinary cellulose sponge or wood pulp sponge. Like other plastics or elastic materials, people want to use a machine to compress it and save courier costs due to the large volume affecting transportation.
The compressed cellulose sponge is not a popular new product. Instead, it is a similar compact foam product that appeared in the past 20 to 30 years, while cellulose materials only appeared in the past 10 years.
The compressed sponges mainly refer to compressed wood pulp products, and its raw material is natural cellulose fiber. Cellulose sponge is a sponge product made of coniferous wood and other cotton fibers. Because it is made of natural wood, it can be 100% degraded naturally and will not cause damage to the environment.
Because of its unique characteristics, it was originally used in daily life as a new type of green cleaning material. In addition, it has good water absorption and features, and perhaps it has played an essential environmental protection role in many fields.
Because compressed cellulose sponge is composed of one material. The main part of the franchise is the change in appearance and application direction.
Daily cleaning and car cleaning: due to its excellent water absorption as well as high-temperature resistance. It can sterilize inside of the microwave, killing 95% bacterias or more.
Beauty salon: It is an indispensable cleaning tool for professional technicians in beauty salons. It can effectively remove stains on the skin or remove oil.
Beauty: It can be convenient for consumers to take care of daily and remove the mask. It can be adapted to different skin types without causing allergies.
Literature and art teaching materials: professional teaching aids for education and training can be made.
Electric soldering iron: can be used to clean the high-temperature soldering iron tip.
Laboratory: It can be used for cultivation and conducting cultivation tests.
Promotional items: The logo can be printed on the air-dried and processed sponge as a slogan.
The production of compressed sponges mainly includes three procedures.
Procedure 1 Cutting original block:
The first step in producing the compressed sponge is cutting out the sheet according to the requested thickness and size. For example, suppose you need a thickness of 9 mm (generally referred to as the expanded size). In that case, we may use a sponge horizontal cutting machine to cut this specific thickness first.
Procedure 2 Drying treatment of sponge:
The initial sponge sheets with an expected thickness will be fixed in a custom-made frame for extraction and air-drying absorption. Environmental and auxiliary equipment control huge effect the drying time need. The air-drying process is the final stage of the entire processing process of the compressed sheets, which can reach about one week. The final product is generally between 820 mm and 850 mm in length and width.
Procedure 3 Final processing of sponge:
The entire dried compressed sheet is fractalized in various shapes through dedicated die-cut molds through punching and shearing machine.
The only difference between the compressed sponge and ordinary sponge is that though the thickness has changed. Still, its physical characteristics are precisely the same as before compression.
The compressed sponge is a fascinating thing and maybe even more fun for children. After taking out the sealed compressed sponges from the vacuum packaging bag or the heat-sealed bag, soak them into the container full of water. You will see magical scenes happen. As thin as a piece of paper, the sponge quickly expanded within two seconds of entering the water, and the whole process was full of visual impact.
The expanded sponges can be used according to your different needs. For example, wipe the stains on the object’s surface, absorb the moisture remaining on the desktop, or it can be used as a laboratory for microbial cultivation. You can even use it to cultivate plants.
After using, you can put the sponges in a ventilated place or hang them up. They can be quickly dried in natural air, thereby eliminating the nourishment of bacteria and avoiding health hazards to the human body. Re-immerse it in water at the beginning of the next use. It can be reused when wet.
If the compressed sponges need to be stored for a long time, it’s better to be placed them in a cool and dry place, and it needs to be sealed. The reason is that the sponge loses its moisturizer and antiseptic components during the compression pretreatment process, and humid air will quickly cause the sponge to become moldy. The standard sealing method is shrinking film or heat pressure sealing bag.
There is currently no accurate scientifically recorded storage time. For the well-sealed sponges, for example, some products in the UC Sponge sample room have even been used for four years, except that the color is slightly oxidized, and there is no change in use. Therefore, this kind of sponge is very suitable for long-term storage and warehouse-type sales.
The expanded sponges may crack or become thinner after repeated use. Or damaged under extreme conditions of use, you can discard it at this time. Don’t worry; they will not cause any harm to the environment. If you smash it into smaller pieces, it will be more conducive to its natural degradation.
Of course, full composite organic bags made of corn starch or other PLA materials on the market can be naturally degraded. If you have high requirements for environmental protection or carbon emissions, we can provide corresponding packaging solutions.
We can provide processing of melamine sponge. It is also a niche and new trending product. There are only a few sellers on the market. The difference is that it is chemically made and does not have the characteristics of a natural sponge.
Surface stains that are easier to clean can be washed with running water. For sponges that contain greasy dirt, you can use detergent or other auxiliary cleaning agents to remove them.
According to relevant laboratory test data, short-term high temperature and ultraviolet disinfection can kill 95% of the bacteria that cover the sponge’s surface and harm the human digestive tract, such as Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus.
Although its original material-cellulose fiber, is 100% naturally degradable, it will cause particular environmental pollution during its production process. This is why very few countries and regions can have suitable foaming places.
The cellulose sponge block also has a certain proportion of humectants and preservatives for long storage, which must be washed many times when used for the first time, especially in direct food contact.
Compressed sponges must use a sealed package to ensure that it will not expand during transportation.
There are very few foaming plants for natural cellulose sponges in the world. Means compression manufacturing plants are not many. North American suppliers and ours use the same raw material supply companies. The main difference lies in processing costs and delivery timeliness. From these perspectives, we are more competitive. Some processing plants in North America and Europe also purchase original compressed sheets for slitting processing.
Except for injection molded products, most sponge materials calculation use square or cubic unit prices to calculate costs. For compressed sponges, additional mold fees are required due to the processing of knife molds. Compared with overseas suppliers, we only charge About 5/1 of their tool costs.
