Gownace: Full protection and comfort for hospital staff

Today more than ever, film-to-nonwoven materials are sought after that offer complete safety and full protection to the wearer.

THE GOWNACE RANGE

The fully impermeable laminates that we deliver for surgical staff gowns come with a bacterial barrier film. Our products are designed to provide comfort and assurance to the wearer. All of our products meet EN13795 requirements (high performance critical area).

REINFORCEMENTS

We provide a range of 2 ply laminates that are used to reinforce the critical areas of a surgical gown. With a choice of hydrophilic or hydrophobic nonwoven, we can adapt a product to suit the sterilisation method you use. The laminate is impermeable with the choice of incorporating a breathable film.

FULLY REINFORCED GOWNS

G72 is a breathable three-ply laminate that meets EN13795 and AAMI Level 3 requirements. It is used in the manufacture of ‘ultra’ gowns that are reinforced throughout – so no need for additional reinforcement or rework.

ACE - Hygiene Aptra

Medicace® & EN13795High performance for critical requirements

For gowns, we offer fully impermeable breathable laminates that eliminate the need for additional resource taking reinforcements. The GOWNACE range presents both bacterial and viral barrier options that offer comfort and assurance to the wearer.
We can customise products to suit our customers’ needs. We will work with you to provide products that ensure the integrity of your Brand and health of your customers.

ACE - EN13795

EN13795

All of the films and laminates we provide to the medical market meet the requirements set out in the EN13795 norm. Whether for STANDARD or HIGH performance critical area, we have the right film or laminate for the right job.

Each of our products is tested to all of the requirements for drapes and gowns as set out in the norm, providing you with peace of mind and the guarantee that you are using the right raw materials.

Multi-layer Lamination

FILM EXTRUSION

Working with several extruders allows you to produce films in several distinct layers.

The layers can incorporate a colour, a special resin to give a particular performance aspect to the film, or skin layers that have a special function. In addition, working with multi-layer technology allows us to introduce recycled granules into the core of the structure – which goes a long way in supporting sustainability and circularity goals.

LAMINATION

Sometimes, a film needs just one nonwoven on one side; the overall effect, a soft, light and texture-like waterproof composite to be used as a hygiene disposable backsheet.

Another application may require a much heavier absorbent nonwoven applied to the film, with a soft and light nonwoven on the reverse side. A good example would be a heavy surgical drape with a comfort layer.

Then you may need a laminate that is extremely absorbent – in one area. Here we build up the layers, using different substrates to give the high performance required.

LET US WORK WITH YOU FOR THE RIGHT RESULT

Plastace

PLASTACE IS A RANGE OF FILMS AND LAMINATES FOR WOUNDCARE APPLICATIONS

Using specially chosen polymers and processes, Plastace delivers a soft yet robust carrier that flexes well on application to a wound.

For premium plasters, we offer a film with nonwoven backing. The choice of nonwoven technology is critical.

If the nonwoven is too strong, the product will not stretch; if it is too soft, we risk losing overall performance of the plaster.

Delivered in clear, white and skin colours, and in range of basis weights, we have the right solution for your product.

Roofing membranes

The quality of a roof depends on the design, the quality of the raw materials used – and the expertise of the technicians who have years of experience laying and building roofs.

ACE has been producing breathable films for roofing membranes for over 20 years.

We know that the quality and stability of the film is crucial. We know that the UV stability of the film is crucial. And we know that the right choice of film crucial to the next converting step.

Our microporous film comes in either polyethylene or polypropylene. It is offered in white, dark grey – or a colour tailored to your brand.

WE ARE JUST A CALL AWAY!

Specialities

Lamination

Offering flexibility in technologies is important when our customers are looking for that ‘something special’.

Taking the same raw materials you will get very different results depending on which lamination technology you use – or which combination of technologies

What can be influenced?

  1. Performance
  2. Feeling
  3. Look
  4. Cost

Which translate into absorption, strength, bulk, softness, barrier properties and affordability for the application.

Perforation

ACE uses what is called ‘vacuum perforation’. This involves producing a precursor film, with or without surfactant, then taking it through a process of reheating over a perforated cylinder at the same time as sucking molten film through the holes of the cylinder. This process creates the hole we are looking for. Both size, depth and 3D shape.

These three will affect the performance of the film – depending on the purpose of course.

Last by not least, our flexible technology allows us to add even more value to our film. We can coat it. And we can laminate nonwoven to it.
