Ahlstrom has introduced Ahlstrom TenderGuard, a new soft SMS (spunbond-meltblown-spunbond) fabric for surgical gowns.
Ahlstrom's TenderGuard offers the optimal balance between safety, softness and comfort. This versatile soft SMS fabric is designed with comfort in mind. Drapeable, pleasant to the touch and lightweight are just a few benefits of this fabric. Our commitment to safety and comfort allow surgeons, nurses and clinicians to feel at ease, allowing them to focus on what's important during an operation.
Ahlstrom TenderGuard is a high performance, cost-effective fabric for medical apparel, offering the same protection as regular treated SMS but with added comfort. It's softness and comfort is comparable to spunlace nonwovens but with the added benefits of lower basis weights and better protection, according to the company.
