In the basic protection and medical working environment, there are risks of germs, harmful ultrafine dust, acidic solutions, salt solutions, and corrosive chemicals. For these risks, protective clothing is needed to protect the entire body of the staff. Protective clothing is also called work clothes. What are the characteristics of protective clothing? What non-woven fabric is made of protective clothing? Do you know all about it.
1. Breathable protective clothing for basic protective work
is suitable for automobile, aviation, food processing, metal processing, mining, oil and natural gas operations. It is generally hooded from head to shoulder to body, with cuffs and trousers tightened. Protective clothing is required to effectively block the entry of dust and solid particles in the operating environment. Wear comfortable and breathable, and not easy to fall out of dust. It has strong protection and can block slight splashes in low-risk areas.
The fabric of this kind of protective clothing is SMS non-woven fabric. The structural characteristics of the ultrafine meltblown fiber layer and the high-strength spunbonded non-woven fabric layer in the structure of the SMS material make the material have a certain degree of hydrostatic pressure resistance and air permeability. These properties form the basic isolation performance of the SMS material. In addition, SMS non-woven fabrics also have barrier properties and are used in various protective clothing products, including high- and low-end medical protective clothing, industrial protective clothing, chemical protective clothing, etc.
Of course, in addition to SMS non-woven fabrics, there are also PE film composite non-woven fabrics, breathable film non-woven fabrics, and spunbonded non-woven fabrics that can be used as fabrics for medical protective clothing.
2. Medical protective clothing
Medical protective clothing, also known as medical protective clothing, is the work dress of medical staff, that is, protective clothing for the body of medical workers. It is mainly used to isolate germs, harmful ultrafine dust, acidic solutions, salt solutions, and corrosive chemicals to keep the environment clean.
Features and uses of medical protective clothing
(1) Ordinary PP non-woven protective clothing
is made of PP spunbond non-woven fabric, which is characterized by: breathable, dustproof, non-waterproof, good tensile strength, and the difference between the front and the back is not obvious. PP spunbond non-woven fabric is used for ordinary isolation suits, low-grade isolation suits, and patient suits.
(2) Film-coated non-woven protective clothing
The fabric is a film-coated non-woven fabric, which is characterized by: airtight, water-proof, good antibacterial effect, and a clear distinction between the front and the back. The side that is in contact with the body is non-woven, not allergic, and feels good. There is a layer of plastic film on the outside to prevent liquid leakage, which is used in occasions with pollution and viruses. The main use of the infectious ward of the hospital is the film-coated non-woven protective clothing.
(3) SMS non-woven protective clothing
three-layer composite non-woven fabric, with a waterproof layer in the middle, and the outer layer is sesame dot SMS non-woven fabric, which is strong and tensile, with isolation, waterproof and breathable function. SMS non-woven fabrics are used in surgical gowns, surgical hole towels, isolation gowns, laboratory gowns, operating suits, non-surgical masks, and visitor gowns.
(4) Breathable film non-woven protective clothing
Using PP polypropylene and covering with PE breathable film, it has strong air permeability and better anti-permeability. It has high impact resistance while resisting a variety of organic solvents, acid and alkali corrosion. The mechanical properties are strong and the texture is soft and comfortable. It is non-combustible, non-toxic, non-irritating, and harmless to the skin. It is bacteria-resistant, waterproof, slightly breathable and soft in texture. It is the most advanced medical protective clothing for medical protection. Its characteristic is that the sweat of the human body can radiate outwards, but the harmful gases and moisture from the outside cannot invade. In addition, breathable non-woven fabrics are also used in surgical gowns, surgical drapes and isolation gowns.
