A revolutionary new enrichment bedding from the people who brought you ALPHA-dri®
ALPHA Pad appeals to rodents' natural behavior of nest building. Its long cotton fibers allow for easy shredding and manipulation.
ALPHA Pad is manufactured from 100% bleached cotton staple fibers to exacting standards. Please refer to the technical specifications for composition and contaminant information.
Low dust levels
Extremely long, 100% cotton staple fibers eliminate the potential for airborne dust after shredding.
The sheets are cut to size to fit standard shoe-box cages, allowing for quick and easy cage filling. The long, absorbent fibers also dump out of soiled cages easily. This allows for better use of valuable labor resources.
Staple cotton fibers are among the most absorbent fibers in the world. The shredded ALPHA Pad will absorb nearly 20 times its own weight which helps keep the animals clean and dry for several days.
ALPHA Pad is available in several different forms. Standard sheets are 6″ x 10″ in sealed poly bags at 50 sheets per bag. Each bag is packaged into a carton of 400 sheets. Sheets can also be cut to custom sizes – contact us to discuss your requirements.
The ALPHA Pad is easily autoclaved. It is also available irradiated.
One small carton of ALPHA Pads will bed the same quantity of cages as four bags of bedding.
