smartSpatulas are economical polypropylene disposable tools for transferring, collecting, and handling chemical and biological materials. Versatile double-ended design enables use as a spatula, spoon, scoop, scraper, stirring rod, or policeman. The unique hollow core minimizes thermal transfer for effective collection of liquid nitrogen frozen samples or stirring hot liquids. Virgin polypropylene construction is resistant to dilute acids and bases. Autoclavable.
Antistatic micro smartSpatula features two V-shaped, sharpened tip ends and is ideal for manipulating extremely small volumes of material. Standard spatulas feature a unique spatula/spoon end and a smaller scoop end. Macro smartSpatula is 50% larger than the standard smartSpatula and features a spatula/spoon end and a clump-busting pick end. The long shaft of the macro spatula eases access to material in larger containers.
smartSpatula EcoSpatula™ are produced with an additive that helps promote biodegradation in the polypropylene resin. Spatulas produced using this additive were found to biodegrade an average of 29% in the first 586 days of testing. Biodegradation rates of ECO-spatulas were measured according to the ASTM D5511 test method. Tests were conducted using 48% solids content; solids content in naturally wetter landfills range from 55% to 65%, while the driest landfills may reach 93%. Actual biodegradation rates will vary in biologically-active landfills according the solids content, temperature, and moisture levels of the landfill.*
*Important California Notice
California law prohibits the sale of plastic packaging and plastic products that are labeled with the terms ‘biodegradable,’ ‘degradable,’ or ‘decomposable,’ or any form of those terms, or that imply in any way that the item will break down, biodegrade or decompose in a landfill or other environment. These restrictions apply to all sales in or into the State of California, including such sales over the Internet. Our product packaging meets the requirements of the state of California.
