Healthcare professionals diagnose and treat a broad spectrum of diseases and injuries. The nature of treatment often involves close interaction between patients and medical staff, necessitating the use of personal protective equipment (PPE) and other products made of textiles that adhere to very strict regulations. Therefore, many medical-grade woven and non-woven fabrics undergo various treatments and coatings to comply with stringent industry standards and specific product requirements.

Tex Tech is a leading provider of medical textiles, specializing in coated and laminated materials that meet strict medical device standards. We develop and produce a diverse range of textiles designed for air and liquid holding applications and more. At Tex Tech, we prioritize the production of high-quality, reliable fabrics essential for the safety of both patients and healthcare workers in medical settings. Featuring advanced coating and lamination technologies, our textiles are engineered to provide microbial resistance, effective moisture and fluid barriers, and exceptional durability in air-holding applications.
