Medical Textiles

Priontex has developed a proprietary laminate fabric that is strong and durable. This superior, high-tech, ultra-performance fabric is super-absorbent, chemical-resistant and impermeable to fluids, providing a barrier against viruses and bacteria.

Fabric Composition

The membranes used in our fabrics are only a few µm thick and are resistant to chemicals. Their elasticity and light weight make them ideal for use in textile composites. PrionTex has an excellent moisture vapour transmission rate which makes the fabric highly breathable. The membrane is integrated in surgical gowns or drapes and is protected by a polyester fabric and liner (3-layer sandwich construction). The fabrics are almost free of particles and have a high capacity to absorb fluids.

Priontex Barrier laminate textiles fulfil the criteria for high-risk procedures under the American, ASTM, and European EN standards.

All Priontex surgical fabric is tested to EN13795 standards
