ACE - NEWS COVID 19 200529

ACE plays a critical role in combatting Covid-19 across the world

Since the on-set of Covid-19, ACE is experiencing unprecedented levels of interest and record sales of its GOWNACE range of laminates.

Fact: The terrible virus that has invaded our world and changed our way of life has triggered a boom in demand for safe single-use protective clothing for healthcare workers in the thick of the crisis.

It is of no great surprise then that demand for the Gownace range of laminates has rocketed – and forecasts show that this will continue way past year-end.

Traditionally, surgical gowns are reinforced in critical areas, leaving the rest of the fabric ‘as is’. Gownace 72, is an impermeable yet breathable three-layer laminate that is designed for the manufacture of a gown that needs no additional reinforcing. As a fabric that meets the norm EN 13795 (high performance critical area), it naturally delivers a secure barrier throughout the entire garment, whilst providing excellent comfort via its intrinsic breathability.

“The demand for Gownace is global,” says Tricia Featherstone, Commercial Director at ACE. “The challenge is now keeping up supplies whilst nonwoven capacities are tight around the world due to increased mask manufacturing for the general public. However, our team is doing a great job in securing the supply chain and we are confident that Gownace will continue to play an important role in the protection of healthcare workers on the front line of Covid-19”

Like the new website?

As ACE separates from RKW after many happy years together, it is time for a new lease of life for the company. So a new logo and a new look to take us forward into a fresh new era.

How do our customers see us? That is easy to answer: dependable, consistent, strong – and becoming ever more green. We believe that our new logo echoes this perception and that our customers will be proud to be associated with the new look.

And how do we see ourselves? Smart, flexible, professional – and simply the best at what we do. Our new look certainly reflects this and we identify with it whole-heartedly.

So, what changes along with the look? Well, not much in the short term – it is business as usual. However, as we move forward, we will be introducing new products for new applications – all based on our current technology but with a new twist. The difference is that we are focusing more and more on sustainable processes and resins, and reducing the overall carbon footprint of our products’ life.

Join us on the continuation of our successful journey towards a bright and green future!
