Protective Apparels

Guide to Protective Materials


Here is a brief description of the main materials we use in the construction of DMK protective apparels.

Spunbond Polypropylene
The standard fabric for basic protective apparel; formed by bonding fibers together to form a single layer of breathable, woven-like material. 
Its main advantages are economy and comfort, but it also provide light fluid protection.  

Multi-Ply Material 
A multi-ply material consist of layers of meltbrown polypropylene between layers of spunbond polypropylene. Strong, fluid-resistant and breathable. 
This multi-layer material provides an optimal mix of protection and comfort. Appropriate for extended wear situations involving low to mod- erate fluid contact.

Coated Polypropylene
This is created with soft spunbond polypropylene that is coated with a layer of impervious polyethylene. 
This light weight material is ideal for any situation demanding a high level offluid protection. 

Breathable Laminate
This is microporous film bonded to nonwoven material that provides fluid- proof protection and great breathability. 
This material is ideal for extended wear conditions where fluid contact is expected.  

 

Levels of Barrier Protection


​The DMK Isolation Gowns with color-coded neck bindings meet the test requirements set forth by
​Association for the Advancement of Medical instrumentation (AAMI) PB70.

The chart below is set forth in the AAMI PB70 Guidelines. The color-coding has been developed by DMK to 
differentiate each level and corresponds with the color-coded neck bindings on the DMK AAMI Complaint isolation 
Gowns.
