There are many different materials in surgical gowns, and today we can look at the various materials that make up surgical gowns and their advantages and disadvantages.


The following knowledge points are listed below:

Different materials of surgical gowns


① What is a surgical gown

Surgical gowns can be divided into repetitive surgical gowns and disposable surgical gowns according to their usage. Reusable surgical gowns are mainly made of common cotton fabric, high-density polyester fiber fabric and PE, TPU and PTFE multilayer laminated-film composite surgical gowns. Disposable surgical gowns are mainly SMS\SMMS surgical gowns, SMS or SMMS non-woven surgical gowns, reinforced sheets are non-woven composite materials.

② The performance of the surgical gown should have.

The performance of the operating garment mainly includes: barrier performance, and comfortable performance.

The barrier performance mainly refers to the protective performance of the operating garment, and its evaluation methods mainly include hydrostatic pressure, water staining test, impact penetration, spray, blood penetration, microbial penetration and particle filtration efficiency.

Comfortable properties include air permeability, water vapor penetration, drape, quality, surface thickness, electrostatic properties, color, reflectance, odour and skin sensitization, as well as the influence of design and sewing during garment processing. The main evaluation indexes are air permeability, moisture permeability, charge density and so on.

Adsorption performance is the only type of key areas, and its material to generate the spillage of liquid adsorption in the operation, and the water vapor in the air and mist equipment using colloidal particles of dust, such as electric knife (smoke) surgery to reduce the harmful substances in the air diffusion, and thus patients with incision site infection and risk of infection of medical staff.

③ Different materials of surgical gowns

1. Polypropylene spunbonded gown: this material can be treated with antimicrobial and antistatic, and made into antimicrobial protective gowning, antistatic protective gowning, etc. Polypropylene spunbond gowns can replace traditional cotton gowns. Compared with traditional cotton protective gowning, the polypropylene spunbonded protective gowning is undoubtedly a big improvement. Because of its low price and one-time use, it can greatly reduce the cross infection rate, and it has been widely promoted in foreign countries for a long time after its launch. However, this material has low resistance to hydrostatic pressure and poor blocking efficiency of virus particles, so it can only be used as an aseptic surgical gown, disinfectant gown and other general protective articles.

2. Polyester fiber and wood pulp composite water gown: this material feels soft, close to the traditional textile, and can be three anti (anti-alcohol, anti-blood, anti-oil) and anti-static, anti-bacterial treatment, can use "Y" ray for disinfection, is a good medical protective gowning material. However, its resistance to hydrostatic pressure is relatively low, and the blocking efficiency of virus particles is also relatively poor, so it is not an ideal protective gowning material.

3. Polypropylene spunbonded melt-blown spunbonded composite nonwovens (SMS or SMMS):

The characteristics of meltblown gown are fine fiber diameter, large surface area, fluffy, soft, good drapability, low filtration resistance, high filtration efficiency, strong hydrostatic pressure resistance, but low strength, poor wear resistance, which limits the development of its application field to a considerable extent. The fiber line density of spunbonded gown is larger, and the fiber net is composed of continuous filaments, so its breaking strength and elongation are much larger than that of meltblown gown, which can make up for the deficiency of meltblown gown. SMS products have the inherent high wear resistance of spunbond layer, and the intermediate meltblast layer improves the filtration efficiency, barrier performance, particle penetration resistance, hydrostatic pressure resistance, shielding and appearance uniformity, resulting in good filtration, liquid resistance and opacity. This material has the following excellent characteristics: (1) uniform and beautiful appearance; High resistance to hydrostatic pressure:③ soft feel;④ good air permeability;⑤ good filtering effect; Strong acid and alkali resistance. In addition, SMS nonwovens can be treated with three resistances (anti-alcohol, anti-blood, anti-oil), anti-static, anti-bacterial, anti-aging and so on to meet the needs of different uses. Therefore, SMS nonwovens have been widely used at home and abroad to make a high-grade surgical gowns.
