Dental nonwovens are materials used as hygienic elements and protective clothing at dental clinics. Light, breathable and to varying degrees resistant to fluids, non-woven fabrics are perfect as gowns, coveralls, protective masks, as well as drapes used during dental procedures. Among them you will find nonwovens for masks: meltblown (with a BFE index of 99.6%), spunbond, SMS nonwovens and laminated nonwovens: protective and breathable.
Laminate for dental bibs
As a material for dental bibs, we especially recommend laminate of spunbond nonwoven fabric and thin foil. What are the properties of laminated nonwovens? First of all, the foil makes them a water-impermeable material. Thanks to this, there is no risk of various types of liquids getting directly onto the equipment of the dentist’s clinic, and the exchange of protective bibs between individual patients is extremely simple. The non-woven polypropylene layer causes any spilled liquids to soak into the material.
Non-woven fabric for dental accessories
The non-woven fabric (facing) is also used in the production of other types of dental accessories. It is used in the production of protective covers for dental chairs, which are put on the seat, backrest and headrest. Polypropylene nonwovens absorb water, therefore they are perfect as dental bibs and replaceable spittoon cartridges. During dental procedures, e.g. during air abrasion, the patient’s face is covered with a dedicated face mask, which is also produced with the use of breathable spunbond nonwoven fabric.
