Component Hardware Group uses Saniguard’s antimicrobial technology for its 64-ounce ice scoop. The scoop can be used with ice or on dry goods. It is lined with antimicrobial technology that inhibits the growth of bacteria, mold and mildew. There is also a molded hand guard to prevent accidental hand contact and to help eliminate cross-contamination. The antimicrobial treatment involves a silver ion-based layer and will last through the expected life of the product.
