PTFE films are widely used in materials for medical use, such as surgical gowns, surgical towels, protective gown, disinfection equipment package materials, artificial organs, and so on. Gown in addition to protective role, should have ventilation and moisture, so that medical and nursing staff in the surgical process is not infected with the blood of infected patients, and make the wearer feel comfortable. At present, there are different levels of protection and breathability of surgical gowns, such as major parts of the body (abdomen to chest, wrist to elbow) double-layer fabric cascading gown, PTFE membrane surgery suits and thin film layered gown. Statistics show that in 500 gowns of the test found that in terms of blood penetration resistance, single layer spunlace non-woven fabric surgical blood penetration rate for 9%, an enhanced non-woven fabric surgical blood penetration rate for 5% and PTFE membrane gown only to 2%. In terms of comfort, because the gown of PTFE membrane permeability and permeability is good, so wearing the same comfort.
