Reliance® Fusion
Next-generation sterilization wrap incorporating the best properties of cellulose-based and polypropylene-based materials.

Ahlstrom boasts a long history in the manufacturing of high-performance sterilization wraps. Over the years, our products have been extensively used in healthcare facilities worldwide, bringing a key contribution to the protection of patients from hospital-acquired infections.

We’ve combined our best technologies into our new Reliance® Fusion, a next-generation  sterilization wrap.

Reliance® Fusion is made of two distinct layers:

  • INNER LAYER: ABSORBENT WETLAID NONWOVEN, made with cellulose, synthetic binder and PET fibers, resulting in a softer and stronger cellulose-based fabric.
  • OUTER LAYER: SMS NONWOVEN, a strong and durable technology, with low lint and high barrier. The outer layer is made of 100% polypropylene and treated to resist static charge. 

The Reliance® Fusion portfolio consists of a simpler two-model sterilization wrap system (Light and Heavy), available for two widely used wrapping techniques (simultaneous and sequential). The two basis weight options are capable of replacing all six traditional Reliance® Solo and Reliance® Tandem type models while offering superior pre-vacuum steam drying time performance under high tray weight conditions.

  • RELIANCE® FUSION LIGHT, 83 gsm, for light-to-medium duty applications
  • RELIANCE® FUSION HEAVY, 132 gsm, for heavy-duty applications


Limited regional availability.  Reliance® Fusion is currently pending 510(k) and not available for sale within the United States at this time. Contact us to learn more:
