      Products

      Durable Barrier Medical Fabrics

      Our durable barrier medical fabrics meet ASTM 1670 and 1671 requirements for blood and blood-borne pathogen protection. Our lamination services and laminate adhesive technologies allow material composites to maintain their protective properties through the rigors of numerous industrial launderings, autoclaving, and critical end-use applications, while retaining the vital, innovative textile features of the individual components.

      Disposable Barrier Medical FabricS

      Our ability to laminate at high speeds and control adhesive add on weights below 3 grams per square meter makes us a competitive alternative to direct extrusion coating. Our room temperature curing adhesive system allows us to laminate thin barrier films without subjecting them to heat and excessive pressure.  

      Berry Compliant 

      Our latest PPE efforts, including medical fabrics, medical gowns, and N95 respirator masks, are Berry Amendment Compliant. Therefore, we meet the federal regulation for Berry compliance that requires Department of Defense funds to be spent on U.S. manufactured items to protect the United States industrial market in times of crisis.

      Blood pressure cuff medical fabric

      Inflatable Medical Devices

      We manufacture cuffs, low air loss hospital mattresses, and lymphedema prevention devices that provide pressure as a means of therapy or measure diagnostics. The barrier films are produced from various polymers, which are sealed via impulse, RF, ultrasonics, and hot air.

      Orthopedic brace medical fabric

      Orthopedic Medical Devices

      We provide a wide assortment of medical fabrics and materials for the orthopedic device market.
