Differences between disposable medical gowns

2017-09-12
Many customers do not know how to choose disposable gowns for their clients, cause they usually don't even know the differences between those common gowns. So today I'm gonna tell you the differences between them.
 
We can divide those gowns into two big categories: surgical gown and isolation gown.
 
—— Surgical gown: Mainly used during surgical operations or some sterile medical procedures.
 
—— Isolation gown: Can be used by visitors/patients/nurses/doctors, usually is only for normal isolation during visiting, nursing, medical examination or some kinds of treatment.
 
Here are the main differences,
 
1. Material
 
—— Surgical gown:  SMS/SMMS/SMMMS, weight ≥35g/m². Wood pulp spunlace material is also available, but it is much more expensive than the other types.
 
—— Isolation gown: PP/SMS/PP+PE, weight ≤35g/m².
