Surgical gowns and drapes

Intelligent liquid control

Surgical laminates by Trans-Textil act as a reliable barrier against liquids and infectious agents and are also highly breathable.

In addition, they offer:
  • 100% impermeability to microorganisms and liquids
  • a high degree of breathability for professional comfort
  • a degree of tear, bursting and tear propagation resistance that surpasses the require-ments of the respective standards
  • virus impermeability even in cases of slight impairment of membrane system elasticity
  • application-oriented particle and liquid control

Trans-Textil uses special polyester fabrics to optimise liquid control and hinder bacteria growth.

Such fabrics are used in situations involving a high occurrence of liquids and thus a high risk of infection. This is because they offer:
  • several textile levels for an enlarged surface area and thus enhanced liquid uptake
  • microfibers for additional surface area
  • incorporation of auxiliary agents within the PES filaments for added hygiene
Liquid is not absorbed by the polyester fibres but taken up between them and transported away. As a result, the fabric dries quickly, giving bacteria little opportunity to grow and multiply.
