The standard for medical disposable protective coverall is the technical requirements for medical disposable protective coverall implemented from March 01, 2010 specified by the China National Standardization Administration: GB19082-2009.

Disposable protective clothing is discarded after use without disinfection and washing. It is convenient to use and can avoid cross infection. However, the degradation of disposable materials is slow and it is easy to cause environmental pollution. Generally, surgical protective clothing and isolation clothing with high protection requirements are mostly used.  After repeated use, washing, high temperature disinfection and other measures are required. Generally, the comfort of the material is better, but the protective performance is usually poor. The washing and disinfecting process will also increase a lot of manpower and water resources costs, and usually requires less protection. Most of the daily work clothes (white coats) use this type.
