Introducing Floor Pads with Enhanced Biodegradation*

Our goal is to produce products that perform to the highest standards while leaving the smallest possible impact on the environment. A leader in the Jan/San industry for 45 years, Americo has been manufacturing floor pads with 100% recycled fibers for well over a decade. We're now completing the cycle by introducing an innovative floor pad technology that has been specially formulated to biodegrade in a fraction of the time once discarded into a landfill, compared to conventional pads.* When consumers see the Full Cycle™ label, they will know they have a quality product while reducing mankind's impact on the environment. Being good stewards of the environment is simply our corporate responsibility—and it’s what sets us apart from other manufacturers.

Frequently Asked Questions

    *ASTM D5511 testing shows up to 90% biodegradation of Americo's Full Cycle™ floor pad in 14 months, as compared to less than 7% on our conventional pads. Laboratory tests, which represent optimized conditions, often show faster results than actual landfill conditions. The actual rate of biodegradation of Americo's Full Cycle™ pads, as well as the rate of all plastic materials in landfills, will be slower and will vary, dependent upon actual landfill conditions. Stated rate and extent of biodegradation does not imply that the product will continue to decompose or decompose completely (click to see test results).

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.
