Ahlstrom expands sterilization range

May 14, 2013

Incorporates SMS into barrier systems to optimize offerings.

Ahlstrom has introduced its expanded interleaved Sterile Barrier Systems (SBS) offering, Ahlstrom Reliance® Tandem. This expansion introduces SMS (Spunbond-Meltblown-Spunbond) technology into the company’s offering. The company aims to better meet customers' needs and provide unique SBS solutions.
 
Ahlstrom's sterile barrier systems are a trusted and an integral part of the central sterilization department in hospitals. Previously, the company’s interleaved offering consisted of crepe and wetlaid technologies. To help customers stay ahead, Ahlstrom now offers a complete interleaved portfolio with the introduction of SMS into its Ahlstrom Reliance Tandem portfolio. Ahlstrom Reliance Tandem uses its newest technology, SMS, in combination with its existing technologies to provide the optimal combination of sterile barrier system sheets for sequential wrapping.
 
Ahlstrom Reliance Tandem or interleaving is the concept of combining two layers of SBS sheets, each offering specialized performance for sequential wrapping. The two layers are used together to offer a high degree of flexibility in terms of performance, technology and cost for different applications.
