2021-06-10

Protective clothing refers to work clothing that protects the human body from damage by external factors such as physics, chemistry and biology.
Protective clothing is divided by purpose
According to the purpose and use occasion, it can be divided into: daily work clothes, surgical gowns, isolation gowns and protective clothing.
Daily work clothes refer to the white coats worn by medical staff in their daily work, also known as white lab coats. Surgical gown refers to specially designed clothing worn in the operating room.
Isolation clothing refers to the clothing worn by medical staff when they come in contact with patients, and when family members visit patients.
Protective clothing refers to the clothing worn by people who enter special areas such as medical emergency treatment, infectious disease areas, electromagnetic radiation areas, etc.
According to the service life of protective clothing, medical protective clothing can be divided into disposable protective clothing and reusable protective clothing.
Disposable protective clothing is discarded after use without disinfection or washing. It is easy to use and can avoid cross-infection. However, disposable materials degrade slowly and easily cause environmental pollution. Usually, surgical gowns and isolation gowns with high requirements for protection are mostly used. Types of. The reusable type requires washing, high temperature disinfection and other measures after use. Generally, the comfort of the material is better, but the protection performance is usually poor. The washing and disinfection process will also increase a lot of manpower and water resources costs, and usually have low requirements for protection. Most of the daily work clothes (white coats) use this type.

Special protective clothing
Chemical protective clothing: Protective clothing worn to protect yourself from dangerous chemical or corrosive substances when handling dangerous medical chemicals. In addition to the chemical resistance of clothing materials, chemical protective clothing also has stricter requirements on the tightness and the seam structure of the clothing.
Electromagnetic radiation protective clothing: By implanting very fine conductive fibers in the fabric material, the protective clothing does not generate static electricity and can shield the electromagnetic wave in the range of 100kHz to 300GHz. It is mainly used for the operating population of the electronic medical equipment system in the hospital [7].
Nuclear and radiation protective clothing: used in nuclear radiation environment (small dose, large-scale ionizing radiation, mainly α and β rays) to prevent radioactive aerosols and dust from harming the human body. It has the functions of protecting radioactive aerosols, protecting more than 150 kinds of toxic and corrosive gases, liquids and solids, protecting potential radioactive particles and liquids from intruding into the body, and 100% blocking dry particles above 0.2μm.
Chemical protective clothing. In 1990, the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) proposed and developed additional standards, which were recognized by OSHA. The FPA1991 standard puts forward performance requirements for airtight chemical protective clothing. These requirements include chemical resistance and flame resistance tests, which can protect against 21 basic chemicals.
The disposable protective clothing produced by Xinxiang Yulong Textile Co., Ltd. has obtained CE certification and is exported to all over the world. If you have any needs, please contact us.
