Medical & Industrial Specialties
Fitesa Block is a 100% polypropylene multi-layer composite (SMS) that offers an excellent barrier against contaminating agents and is used for manufacturing sterilization packaging. The combination of its layers’ specific proprieties provides strength and abrasion resistance, low linting and excellent dead-fold properties for aseptic opening of packaging. Fitesa Block creates a liquid barrier and provides high barrier to particle contamination.
Fitesa Block works well with most sterilization methods, including saturated steam, ethylene oxide, formaldehyde at low temperature and hydrogen peroxide. It can also be treated with special additives to make it suitable for use with gamma and E-beam sterilization.
Surgical Gown and Drape
Fitesa Block is a 100% polypropylene multi-layer composite that offers an excellent barrier against liquid and particulate contaminating agents required for sterile fields and surgical gown applications. The combination of its layers’ specific proprieties provides strength and abrasion resistance, with low linting. Users experience comfort with superior barrier to liquids and particle contamination. Fitesa Laminates are suggested for applications where an impervious fluid barrier is required. Fitesa Laminates can be hydrophilic or hydrophobic.
Protective Clothing, Accessories and Masks
Protective clothing made with Fitesa Block is resistant to abrasion and tearing and possess a good balance of air permeability and barrier properties, so that the wearer stays cool while being protected from liquid and solid contaminants. Fitesa Spunbond nonwovens are used for applications where a high particle barrier is not required, such as circulation gowns, caps, shoe covers and the outside layers of disposable face masks.
Fitesa Sorb is used in booms that contain and absorb leaks and spills of oil and other non-aqueous fluids in the ocean, rivers, lakes, and refineries. In pad form, it’s used in automotive care centers and industrial production areas, maintenance, and for environmental control and safety, quickly diminishing environmental contamination risks.
Fitesa Filter is primarily used in industrial filtration units. It acts as a filtration medium to separate water and/or oil from contaminants in metal machining, cutting and other industry finishing processes. It also treats coolant oil in the lamination process of aluminum, steel and copper, as well as other metals. Fitesa Filter fabrics effectively capture fine particles in a variety of systems. It filters particles up to a 3µm diameter and purifies cooling fluids in mechanical industries, aluminum processing plants and within the food and pharmaceutical industries.
Crop Covers and Fruit Packaging
Fitesa Agro nonwoven was developed as an innovative alternative for growers. It protects crops against insects and environmental factors. Fitesa Agro nonwovens are also used as individual fruit wrappings, carrier bags and packaging due to its strength, aesthetics, and wide range of colors.
