Screen Protectors That Can Be Cleaned with Bleach and Sanitizers During the Coronavirus Pandemic

March 19, 2020 | By Jolynn Paige

What Hospitals Need to Know About Our Products  

Now that the coronavirus has arrived, electronic devices are being cleaned regularly, especially ones used in medical facilities.  To ensure these devices are cleaned properly, hospital-grade type disinfectants are being used directly on expensive digital screens which, if not protected, can cause damage to the screen.  Our screen protectors hold up to harsh chemicals and can save your device screen’s life.  Below you’ll see what we did to prove this.  

  
The Test – 6HS and MXH Screen Protectors and Anti-Bacterial Cleaning Solutions: 

Our Photodon lab technicians created a bleach test to see how our 6HS and MXH protective films would hold up to being regularly cleaned with hospital-grade Clorox Bleach Germicidal Wipes. 

We used a standard office monitor and wiped down the screens two times daily with the bleach wipes for a period of 30 days.  The results were clear:  the screen protectors' clarity and protection were not compromised, which means the screen itself was not either! 


Features and Specifications of Photodon’s 6HS and MXH Screen Protectors: 

Our screen protectors can be part of your company’s cost-reduction program by avoiding the need to replace expensive screens, whether it be for medical equipment screens that can be damaged by regular and necessary cleaning requirements especially at this time, to manufacturing-type devices, laptops, monitors, TVs, or any other device screen. 

Our 6HS and MXH Materials: 

  • Are resistant to yellowing, even when cleaned with harsh chemicals 
  • Are touchscreen-compatible 
  • Are an affordable solution 
  • Are great protection for your screen and offer different finishes.  6HS is a clear, glass-like option, where MXH offers an anti-glare, matte finish 
  • Protect your devices from scratches and blunt force impact 
  • Withstand daily wipe-downs with hospital-grade disinfectants, including bleach wipes 
  • Can be custom-cut for any device (up to 40.5” tall) 
  • Are easily removable with no residue left on the screen 
  • Come with installation kits and detailed instructions for an easier installation 

Photodon’s Advice: 

Replace the screen protector:  Not the screen. 

While we have not tested our other films, we believe that our other screen protector film types would respond the same way if tested with the bleach wipes. Should chemicals degrade the PET material over time, it can be inexpensively replaced, while the same cannot be said of replacing the actual device screen. 

The Bottom Line: 

Touchscreen use is increasing in medical-type environments from patients using equipment to check in and check out, to doctors, nurses, lab technicians, and other staff.  It pleases us to know that we can provide a high-quality, affordable option for protecting these heavily used and expensive devices. We specialize in custom solutions and offer 9 film types and privacy filters. We have quick turn-around times and will work with you to get you what you need when you need it!

Making the Crystal Clear Choice, Screen Protective Film

MXA Makes Colors Pop – Great for Gamers and Graphic Designers

MXADescribing film types can be difficult, but Photodon's MXA Crystal Clear is the only anti-reflective film that we carry, and so it has a distinct difference over the other clear films that we sell. (Note: Photodon carries several types of anti-glare film, but only one anti-reflective film).

MXA's  anti-reflective coating twists the light emitted from a screen, which has the effect of making the whites whiter and colors sharper.  Images seem to "pop" and look a little tweaked up when putting this film on your device.  For this reason, MXA is very popular with anyone who is interested in screen protectors that will not only do an excellent job at protecting the screen, but will also enhance a display's image.  Gamers, graphic designers, movie buffs, and retailers who have digital displays that they want to protect and draw special attention to — all these types of customers love our MXA film.
