Sontara® for Surgical Gowns & Drapes

  • Sontara® wood pulp/polyester fabrics with repellent properties provide the protection and ultimate comfort that surgeons and nurses are looking for. Sontara® also provides a range of fabrics with either repellent or absorbent properties (fulfilling the requirements of EN13795) that respond to the challenges of application in drapes. Sontara® wood pulp/polyester fabrics contain more than 50% renewably sourced and biodegradable fibers.

Sontara® for Patient & Staff Apparel

  • Sontara® engineers fabrics made with wood pulp/polyester fibers in modern medical colors. They are both comfortable to wear and with very limited particle shedding.  More than 50% of the fibers are renewable sources and biodegradable. 

Sontara® products are made using proprietary technology for high demanding applications. High-speed water jets are used to hydraulically entangle various fibers to form a strong absorbent web. Unlike many nonwoven fabrics, Sontara® uses no binders, chemicals or adhesives. It has exceptional mechanical strength, excellent absorbency, and because the fibers are washed during fabric formation, it exhibits very low lint. These unique features make Sontara® ideal for the cleaning requirements of the quality-conscious user.
