The primary purpose of nonwoven medical garments is to provide a barrier against water and other fluids. These garments are often intended for only a single use, but must still possess the comfort and appearance properties expected of all textiles, like softness and drape. Durability, even in the single use items, is important because tearing could create a serious contamination risk.
MCP has a range of polymer products for use in coatings for medical garments. These possess properties like good wet and dry tensile strength and hydrophobicity. For further details, contact an MCP product specialist.
