Ahlstrom-Munksjö has announces the launch of TrustShield™ Biological, a personal protective apparel medical fabric designed to shield against hazardous pathogens. The product portfolio offers a range of medical fabrics designed to provide superior protection in the operating room, clinical and laboratory environments.
TrustShield™ fabrics are laser resistant, protect against chemical permeation, and are highly absorbent. They can be easily converted into medical grade gowns or drapes. The bi-laminate fabric consists of a polypropylene based nonwoven layer designed for comfort and a polyethylene film layer for protection against biohazards.
“It is important to focus on how we can advance product functionality in our smart fiber-based solutions. This holds true especially for our medical business and the protective fabrics we produce to keep front line workers safe. TrustShield™ Biological further underscores our mission to deliver high performing medical fabrics that fully protect health care workers and patients globally,” said Lionel Bonte, Vice President, Medical, Ahlstrom-Munksjö.
