Super quality surgical drapes
Our surgical drapes are made from single-use nonwovens and are widely preferred to conventional linen as they provide a microbiological barrier and are an important part in the fight against Hospital Acquired Infections (HAI).
In the operating room, the success of a surgery is a combination of several factors and choosing the right material for a surgical drape is one of them. Fabric barrier and strength are key requirements for surgical drapes, yet other properties such as drapeability and linting must be taken into account to protect the patient and not interfere with the surgery process.
Ahlstrom offers a wide range of single-use medical fabrics designed to deliver highest levels of protection and meet all requirements of surgical drape applications. Our unique portfolio of technologies offers a variety of materials ranging from film-based laminates to SMS to wetlaid nonwovens. Our drape materials are available in a range of compositions, weights and colors -- and their properties can be tailored to match the specific performance requirements.
