The industrial wipes market has been strengthened with the launch of a new range of products...
Non woven fabrics play a vital role in the medical sector. From surgical gowns, masks and other wearable products to surgical drapes, pads, dressings and filtration materials, they are everywhere.
Most medical non woven products are disposable, single use items that have the advantage of sterilisation or cleaning for reuse. Some can also provide the required function over a limited period of time.
With the latest medical technologies, doctors and state-of-art hospitals are now using non woven fabrics as standard, which are not only economical and eco-friendly but disposable and fresh to use.
Features and benefits:
- Reduction of risk from microbes that cause disease
- Soft on skin
- Easy manoeuvrability
- Air permeability
- Can be sanitised
- Easy to stitch
Techtex uses fabrics made from cutting edge manufacturing processes. Our medical nonwovens can be needlepunched, hydro-entangled, spunbonded, meltblown or thermally bonded to meet your demands.
Bi-component splittable or fibrillated fibres, nanotechnology and fibre modification also play important roles in some recent developments, with many involving filtration and barrier technologies. Nanofibres are becoming very popular for medical textiles used to filter viruses and bacteria.
