Medentex medentotainer® Toothbox 0.35 Gallons
Our Toothbox has been specifically designed for the safe and compliant disposal of extracted teeth with amalgam fillings. It is vital to sort the different kinds of amalgam waste before recycling, so we offer different containers for different purposes. All of them - even our Toothbox - are equipped with a patented technology, which protects you from the dangers of mercury vapor exposure at your workplace.
medentovap - our unique mercury vapor suppressant technology
For the secure handling and storage of amalgam waste, all of our containers are equipped with medentovap mercury vapor suppressant technology. The lids contain a special sponge impregnated with medentovap, in order to minimize toxic mercury vapor emission from the containers.
The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends a maximum exposure of 50 micrograms per cubic meter (µg/m3). A study conducted by medentex indicated that containers without mercury vapor suppressants emit a much higher concentration of the dangerous vapor than recommended.
