Huntsman Textile Effects and Bao Minh Textile, one of the largest and most modern woven fabric producers in Vietnam, are collaborating to produce fabric that meets the stringent performance standards required of isolation gowns. High-quality medical gowns are essential protective wear for healthcare workers combatting the global COVID-19 pandemic.
Bao Minh Textile will treat 760,000 meters of woven fabric with a curated combination of Huntsman Textile Effects barrier effect solutions and auxiliaries. The fabric is sufficient to produce 345,000 high-grade isolation gowns.
Bao Minh Textile’s isolation gown fabric relies on a range of Huntsman pretreatment, dyeing and finishing solutions. These include CLARITE® ONE, an all-in-one pretreatment for peroxide bleaching, NOVACRON® and TERASIL® dyes, PHOBOL® CP-C, an excellent oil-, water- and stain-repellent finish, and PHOBOTEX® RSY, a non-fluorinated durable water repellent with extremely high washing resistance. PHOBOL® EXTENDER XAN is also applied to further increase wash durability.
Huntsman Textile Effects has a comprehensive range of barrier effects for both nonwoven and woven medical applications, including facemasks and PPE such as isolation gowns.
