Surgical Drapes And Gowns
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.
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.
Priontex offers a comprehensive range of high and standard performance surgical drapes and gowns to satisfy the requirements of all procedure types.
Priontex recyclable laminate fabrics are manufactured by bonding a breathable membrane between 2 layers of textiles and coating the resulting product with a fluid proof solution for guaranteed waterproof protection. The membrane enables the laminated fabric to be waterproof from the outside while at the same time allowing perspiration to pass through from the inside.
Our laminates and microfibre fabrics are available in a lilac colour. Our recyclable gown offering includes:
