MedViron Overbed Tables offer resistance to Betadine stains

Recently MedViron was asked if Betadine solution will have any effect on the surface of one of our overbed tables.  Previously KYDEX, the thermofilm used on MedViron Ovebed Table tops, had passed a Betadine stain test we did at our office.  But this time we were challenged to scuff up the surface to simulate a year’s worth of cleaning.

The photos below show a KYDEX thermofilmed drawer front that our tester damaged with a ScotchBrite pad to similate a year's wear and tear, and then applied a small amount of Betadine to simulate a spill.

Here is our test methodology with photos below:

  • Pic #1 Scotch-Brite pad to scuff surface.
  • Pic #2 is a drawer front filmed with KYDEX Linen.
  • Pic #3 is the Scotch-Brite pad after scrubbing the surface continually for 1 minute with firm pressure.
  • Pic #4 is betadine applied to the scuffed area at 3:45pm on 12/6/18.
  • Pic #5 is the same betadine applied surface at 1:15pm on 12/7/18.
  • Pic #6 are the CavaWipe disinfecting wipes used to clean the betadine off the KYDEX surface.
  • Pic#7 is the drawer front after being cleaned with CaviWipes.

Results: There was no visible betadine staining on the KYDEX surface after the testing procedure described above. KYDEX is a tough, cleanable surface material that can stand up to demanding hospital environments.

We hope you find this information helpful.
