The purpose of using protective disposable clothing is to protect oneself from being infected by viruses and bacteria. Medical protective disposable clothing refers to the protective clothing used by medical personnel (doctors, nurses, public health personnel, cleaning staff, etc.) and people entering specific medical and health areas (such as patients, hospital visitors, people entering the infection area, etc.). The role of medical protective disposable clothing is to isolate germs, harmful ultrafine dust, acidic and alkaline solutions, electromagnetic radiation, etc., to ensure the safety of personnel and maintain a clean environment.
Medical protective disposable clothing materials need to meet the requirements of "three rejections and one resistance" (that is, rejection of water, rejection of blood, rejection of alcohol, and antistatic) at the nano level. This composite material can be achieved by different material combinations, such as using polyethylene/polypropylene spunbond nonwoven fabric, combined with breathable micro-porous film or other nonwoven fabrics, or using hydroentangled nonwoven fabric combined with breathable micro-porous film, or using wood pulp composite hydroentangled nonwoven fabric.
In the current situation where the COVID-19 is still rampant, protective disposable clothing is essential protective clothing to ensure the safety of medical and health workers, public health workers, patients, and people entering the infection area due to hospital visits. Its role also includes isolating germs, harmful ultrafine dust, acidic and alkaline solutions, etc., to ensure the life and work safety of relevant personnel, while maintaining a clean environment. Protective disposable clothing is an essential personal protective equipment for frontline workers to fight against the novel coronavirus, and its role is to isolate bacterial and viral infections.
