Since the outbreak of COVID-19, not only masks are in short supply, but non-woven epidemic prevention products made of 100% PP plastic non-woven such as medical protective clothing, surgical gowns, and isolation gowns are in short supply. The increase in demand and production capacity has led to an extreme shortage of raw materials for PP plastic non-woven. The raw materials of plastic non-woven have grown by leaps and bounds from 10,000 RMB a ton to hundreds of thousands of RMB a ton during the peak time. In order to solve the supply and demand contradiction between clinical supply and material shortage, Winner Medical takes the lead in independently researching and developing pure cotton non-woven medical protective materials starting from the raw materials and applying them to medical protective clothing, surgical gowns, isolation gowns, and other epidemic prevention products. This not only solves the problem of the supply of raw materials but also improves the permeability and comfort of epidemic prevention products, which also make the products safer and more environmentally friendly.
1. Pure Cotton Non-Woven Used in Medical Protective Clothing:
The product performance of the pure cotton non-woven after filming meets the "GB 19082-2009 Technical Requirements for Single-use Protective Clothing for Medical Use". The moisture permeability reaches 10000g/(m2·d), which is 4 times that of GB19082. It is superior to other materials such as Tyvek. It fills the blank field of domestic raw materials of protective equipment, effectively reducing the dullness and sweating when wearing protective clothing. It can be worn next to the skin with fewer allergic reactions. It is very suitable for professional protective equipment that needs to be worn for a long time such as protective clothing so that medical staff can provide more focused service in the long-time treatment and nursing work.
2. Pure Cotton Non-Woven Used in Surgical Gowns:
After professional anti-alcohol, anti-blood, and anti-grease treatments, pure cotton non-woven retains the comfort of traditional pure cotton materials and provides various protective effects required during surgery, effectively blocking the splashing liquid during the operation. The surgical gown produced with this material not only meets the requirements of the domestic industry standard "YY/T 0506.2-2016 Surgical Drapes, Gowns and Clean Air Suits for Patients, Clinical Staff and Equipment", but also meets the European standard EN 13795-1-2019 for surgical gowns, American standard AMMI-PB70 for surgical gowns, isolation gowns Level 1, Level 2, Level 3. The use of pure cotton non-woven can greatly reduce approximately 90% of the use of plastics and achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) such as "responsible consumption and production".
3. Pure Cotton Non-Woven Used in Isolation Clothing:
The combined pure cotton non-woven and blue breathable film are protective, breathable, and comfortable. The isolation clothing produced with this material meets the domestic standard "GB/T 38462-2020 Textiles—Nonwoven fabrics for Isolation Gowns". Combined with the sticking process, it can meet the American standard AMMI-PB70 for surgical gowns and isolation gowns Level 1, Level 2, Level 3. It can provide protection at a high level.
Because the pure cotton (PC) non-woven is made of 100% cotton as raw material, it is renewable and biodegradable. Cotton is easy to grow with a short production cycle. So everything depends on the green purchase decision of medical purchasers, which can greatly reduce the use of PP/PE plastic materials by about 90% in the long run. PC non-woven is more environmentally friendly than PP plastic non-woven or SMS plastic non-woven.
Nowadays, there are occasional discarded plastic masks on the streets. Some masks float on the surface of the sea or even are washed to the beach. Some unscrupulous people litter masks on country trails and footpaths. Protective clothing, disposable masks, and N95 masks are mainly made of non-recyclable materials such as non-woven and other plastic materials. At present, hundreds of millions of masks and protective clothing are discarded every day in the world. The amount of garbage is staggering. Imagine how many metric tons of plastic are used and discarded every day. Now that we know that masks will become a part of our life in the foreseeable future, it is time for us to seriously study the impact of protective clothing and masks made of plastic on the environment. To reduce the pressure on the environment, the use of advanced materials and sustainable materials, such as cotton, can greatly reduce or even abandon the use of plastics, which is urgent. Significantly reducing the use of plastics can protect the health of the public in a safe and sustainable way while reducing the harm to the environment. The era of green procurement and abandonment of plastics has arrived. It is extremely urgent to implement the production with pure cotton non-woven as raw materials. This is an important measure that will inevitably affect global medical protection, infection control, and civil society to reduce the consumption of plastic.
2020 is the fifteenth year of the promotion of pure cotton non-woven by Winner Medical to the whole world. It is also the first year of the "Decade of Action" plan to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations (SDG). With the product concept of "removing the plastic and using cotton for sustainable regeneration", Winner Medical has won high recognition from the White Paper jointly issued by the United Nations Global Compact and BCG on building sustainable and resilient medical and health infrastructure in countries along with the "The Belt and Road Initiative" and accelerating the realization of the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations. In the next ten years, Winner Medical will continue with the past and open up the future and help to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations, build a sustainable and resilient medical and health system, and provide more comfortable and safer medical protection for customers and medical staff around the world.
