Cleanliness, purity, softness and strength are vital attributes for textiles used in medical applications. Fiberweb® nonwovens can be engineered and finished for stretch, sterility, liquid repellency, bacterial barrier and more, and we continue to develop multi-use nonwovens that are ideal for a variety of innovative medical applications. Nonwovens are used in:
- Bed and table clothes
- CSP Wraps
- Medical devices
- Patient transfer
- Wound care
- Ice pads
- Ostomy bags
- Clean-room contamination protection
Fiberweb manufactures spunbond, carded and meltblown nonwovens, in a variety of FDA compliant polymers for specific medical end uses. Bi-component polymer systems combine the benefit of each of the polymers to provide hybrid solutions in critical applications. Functional additives, such as antimicrobial treatments and colorants, can be added in the spinning process, eliminating the need for additional process steps. Additionally, single-use, disposable nonwoven fabrics are an affordable alternative to traditional fabrics that must be decontaminated after each use.
