Dura Pads
Multi-layer all-purpose molded liners


Dura Pads from Shepherd Specialty Papers are a combination of multi-ply cellulose wadding and molded indented paper. This combination creates a pad with superior absorbency and less bulk. The bottom layer consists of high strength polyethylene film for zero leakage.

* Multiple uses. All-purpose Dura Pads are ideal for cage liners, necropsy liners and pads for postsurgical animal recovery areas. They are also widely used as bench liners and as lining material for work areas involving radioactive or hazardous substances.

Super absorbency. Multi-layered for increased absorbing action. Dura Pads can soak up heavy discharge from large animals such as rabbits and guinea pigs.

Special wicking action.
The capillary action of the plies spreads moisture throughout the sheet, eliminating puddling or runoff.

* Easy to handle.
The rigid nature of Dura Pads allows for faster and more efficient cage changes. Leakage or soak-through is eliminated with the polyethylene backing.

Consistency. Plies are made from cellulose fibers. No variations from shipment to shipment. Also, dust problems are virtually eliminated.

Greater economy. Higher absorbency means longer life; less bulk means less storage is needed. Both translate into lower costs and fewer replacements in cage maintenance.

Quick, easy observation. Dura Pads are made of white tissue which makes animal discharges and lab spills readily noticeable.

Custom sizing. Dura Pads are available in custom cut sheets and various thicknesses to suit your individual needs.

Fast, easy ordering. For more information, prices, or samples of our Dura Pads or other specialty products for laboratory and animal care, see your nearest Shepherd distributor. Or call toll-free 800/382-5001.
