Medical and healthcare workers diagnose and treat people with a wide range of illnesses and injuries. Since most treatment requires close contact between patients and healthcare workers, cloth and textiles used in the medical industry are subject to extremely strict regulations. Medical grade woven and non-woven fabrics can be treated with a variety of coatings and treatments to ensure that they meet industry standards and product requirements.
Tex Tech is a leading industry provider of medical textiles, including coated and laminated materials that meet stringent medical device requirements. From personal protective equipment (PPE) to air holding applications, Tex Tech is proud to produce a comprehensive selection of fabrics for medical environments. We understand that reliable quality fabrics are critical for the safety and protection of patients and healthcare workers across the medical sector. Using state-of-the-art lamination and coating technology, we can create fabrics with microbial resistance, moisture and fluid barriers, air holding with exceptional durability.
