Where is the use of protective aprons?

Hospitals and clinics are exposed to a variety of bacteria, infectious diseases and other types of health hazards. Therefore, hospitals, clinicians, and professionals mostly use personal protective equipment (such as disposable apron) as a safety measure to avoid health risk factors.

Disposable plastic apron is an important part of personal protective equipment (PPE) for most hospital staff. Hospital staff often need to wear suitable disposable plastic protective aprons because of the potential risk of exposure to various hazards in the hospital environment.

For example, in CSSD(central sterile supply department), workers may be exposed to various chemicals and possible pathogenic (disease-causing) microorganisms. The function of the CSSD is to reprocess and sterilize surgical packaging / instruments so that the packaging / instruments can be safely used on patients. However, the processes of cleaning, decontamination, packaging and disinfection often result in exposure of CSSD workers to potentially harmful organisms. Disposable plastic apron is usually used in combination with other PPE. Includes gloves, masks and hats / hats. PPE is worn to provide a high level of protection for CSSD workers. Plastic aprons are also used in many other areas of the hospital, including theaters, isolation wards, patient wards, and ICUs.


What is the material of protective aprons?

The main material of protective aprons are SMS non-woven.SMS non-woven has many advantages.SMS non-woven fabric (Spunbond + Meltblown + Spunbond Nonwovens) is a composite non-woven fabric, which is a spunbond and meltblown composite product.Non-toxic and tasteless, highly effective bacteria. Through special equipment treatment, it can achieve antistatic, anti-alcohol, anti-plasma, water-repellent and water-producing properties.

Non-woven fabric features: durability, disposable. Insulated and non-conductive. Softness and stiffness. Fineness and swelling. Isotropic, anisotropic. Filterable, breathable and impervious. Elasticity and stiffness. Light, loose and warm. Thin as cicada wings and thick as felt. Waterproof and moisture permeable. Ironing, sewing, and compression molding. Flame retardant and antistatic. Water-permeable, waterproof, abrasion-resistant, and fuzzing. Wrinkle resistance, good elasticity, high moisture absorption, water repellency.

1. Lightweight: polypropylene resin is used as the main raw material for production, the proportion is only 0.9, only three-fifths of cotton, fluffy and feel good.

2. Soft: Composed of fine fibers (2-3D), light spot hot melt bonding molding. The finished product is moderately soft and comfortable.

3. Water repellency and breathability: Polypropylene chips do not absorb water and have zero moisture content. The finished product has good water repellency. It is composed of 100% fiber with porosity and good air permeability. It is easy to keep the fabric dry and easy to wash.

4. Non-toxic and non-irritating: The product is produced according to FDA food-grade raw materials, contains no other chemical ingredients, stable performance, non-toxic, non-odor, and does not irritate the skin.

5. Antibacterial and anti-chemical agents: Polypropylene is a chemically blunt substance, and it does not worm, and can isolate the erosion of bacteria and insects in the liquid; antibacterial, alkali corrosion, and finished products do not affect the strength due to erosion.

6, antibacterial. The product is water-extracting, does not mold, and can isolate the erosion of bacteria and insects in the liquid, and does not mold.

7, good physical properties. It is made of polypropylene spun directly into a net for thermal bonding. The strength of the product is better than that of ordinary staple fiber products. The strength is non-directional and the strength in the vertical and horizontal directions is similar.

Because of good performance of protective aprons, aprons have been used widely in many fields.
