Medical protective clothing refers to the protective clothing used by medical personnel (doctors, nurses, public health personnel, cleaning personnel, etc.) and people entering specific medical and health areas (such as patients, hospital visitors, personnel entering infected areas, etc.). Its function is to isolate germs, harmful ultrafine dust, acid-base solution, electromagnetic radiation, etc., to ensure the safety of personnel and keep the environment clean.
Medical Protective Suit passes ASTM 1670 (blood) and ASTM 1671 (blood-borne pathogens) and aligns with CDC PPE guidelines for healthcare workers providing care to unstable, “wet” patients who have bleeding, vomiting, or diarrhea. This clothing line offers bio suits, boot covers, and hoods with taped seams to provide full-body protection and to prevent hazardous liquids from entering through exposed seams. This biohazard suit line also helps protect against highly infectious diseases such as Ebola.
Coveralls are loose-fitting garments that cover the whole body except for the head, hands, and feet. Coveralls are commonly made from high-density polyethylene (HDPE) formed into a non-woven fabric that allows heat and sweat to leave the suit while preventing liquids and aerosols from entering it.
The interfaces on the suit, including the zipper, cuffs, and the edge of the hood or collar, are made liquid-tight to prevent leakage. Cuffs, hood and collar interfaces can be elastic or liquid-tight seals. In addition, the zipper area can have fabric flaps that cover them or be specially made as liquid-tight zipper assemblies.
The sewing of coveralls can be the most difficult part to get right. Seams are sealed by putting tape on them for protection strengthen purposes. However, places, where multiple seams join (such as the armpit), can be difficult to seal properly. Medtecs, in another hand, has been manufacturing coverall for years, we make sure that hospitals workers can have the best protection in the market.
