Introducing SMS/SMMS Nonwoven Fabrics: Revolutionizing Medical Sector Textiles

SMS (Spunbond-Meltblown-Spunbond) and SMMS (Spunbond-Meltblown-Meltblown-Spunbond) nonwoven fabrics stand at the forefront of innovation in the medical sector, offering unparalleled protection and versatility. Crafted from 100% polypropylene (PP), these advanced fabrics combine multiple layers to deliver exceptional strength, durability, and barrier properties.

The technology behind SMS and SMMS nonwovens involves bonding together three or four layers: two outer layers of spunbond polypropylene and one or two inner layers of meltblown polypropylene. This intricate bonding process results in a fabric that effectively blocks contaminants while allowing for breathability and comfort.

Key Features and Advantages:

  1. Superior Protection: SMS and SMMS nonwovens excel in providing a protective barrier against fluids, microorganisms, and particulate matter, making them ideal for use in surgical drapes, gowns, and other medical textiles.

  2. Enhanced Strength: The combination of spunbond and meltblown layers results in a fabric with superior tensile strength, ensuring durability and longevity even in demanding medical environments.

  3. Breathability: Despite their exceptional barrier properties, SMS and SMMS nonwovens remain breathable, allowing for moisture vapor transmission and enhanced comfort during prolonged use.

  4. Versatility: These nonwoven fabrics are available in a wide range of weights and specifications, catering to diverse application requirements. From lightweight surgical sets to reinforced fabrics for critical applications, SMS and SMMS nonwovens offer unmatched versatility.
