High performance medical fabrics

As experts in barrier protection our nonwoven medical fabrics are used around the world to make surgical gowns and drapes, face masks and protective apparel.

The main differentiator in our products is that we do not compromise protection for comfort, we deliver both.

  • ViroSēl™ Breathable Viral Barrier (BVB) fabric is constructed to be impervious, breathable and comfortable with a specially formulated design to create robust seam seals for the highly critical areas of a surgical gown.  
  • PureArmor® BVB personal protective apparel is developed for sensitive environments with technology that achieves extremely low levels of lint.
  • TrustShield™ single-use medical fabrics are laser resistant, protect against chemical permeation, biological hazards and are highly absorbent. 
  • TenderGuard™ medical and civil face mask fabrics are sustainable, renewable, and biocompatible, providing environmentally friendly options.
  • VaporCool™ single-use scrub suit fabric with moisture management to keep the wearer comfortable during surgical procedures.
