Aerosols and the environment

While common knowledge is that aerosols are harmful to the ozone due to chlorofluorocarbon (CFCs), our Sprayway Aerosols line of products pride itself with being CFC-free, which means it has no harmful effects to the environment.

Myth vs. Reality

Aerosol products have been widely charged with damaging the ozone layer. They have also been equated with automobiles and smoke stacks in terms of smog potential. None of these claims is true, yet many people- rightly concerned with the environment- perceive aerosols as a threat to clean air. Much of the confusion is due to outdated and misunderstood data.

In a 1991 research commissioned by S.C. Johnson & Son in America, it was found that majority of Americans still think that the aerosol industry is allowed to use CFC propellants in their products. In actuality, the government began banning the use of CFCs during the 1970s. Canada, Great Britain, Australia and Mexico soon followed suit by phasing out CFC propellants in their products. Today, more than 99% of the aerosol products from these countries do not contain CFCs.

The truth of the matter is, although there are still a handful of brands containing harmful CFCs and other harmful chemicals, Sprayway products are guaranteed to be free of pollutants, thus giving you the benefits of aerosols minus the harm.

Know your needles, point forms and applications

Every three to four months, AP ORIENTAL, in cooperation with Schmetz Needles, conducts free needles seminars to strengthen both companies’ commitment to equip clients with the necessary knowledge on how to best use their products.

Staying true to this, Mr. Tarun Munshi from Schmetz Singapore flew in to speak about the different needles point forms in several garment factories from May 17 to 21, 2011, his second series of seminars for the year. Aptly entitled, “Know Your Needles, Point Forms and Applications”, Mr. Munshi shared the importance of knowing about the different kinds of Schmetzneedles.

Feedback has been very good from most of the first-time attendees, as they realized that even though they were using needles, they didn’t care to know the what’s, how’s and why’s.
