It is less present in the media than the lack of breathing masks, yet it exists: The high demand for medical protective suits and other medical protective clothing. To cushion the bottleneck, operators of Reifenhäuser Lamicor coating lines can convert their capacities:
We have several Reifenhäuser lines and produce a wide range of products for very different areas of application on these lines. The special requirements for the protective clothing sector could be met extremely efficiently on our lines and the cooperation with Reifenhäuser was simple and uncomplicated.
The lines can be used to produce nonwoven/film composites that meet, for example, the DIN EN 14126 standard for medical protective clothing. The German film producer CaPlast already uses this possibility very successfully and currently produces a wide range of high-quality materials for the manufacture of protective gowns and suits.
If you would like to follow CaPlast's example or are thinking about setting up a new production facility for medical protective clothing, Reifenhäuser has all the necessary expertise: In addition to line technology, Reifenhäuser also provides support with know-how on material requirements, product specifications, necessary standards as well as important contacts throughout the entire supply chain.
"We have several Reifenhäuser lines and produce a variety of products for very different application areas on these lines. The special requirements for the protective clothing sector could be met extremely efficiently on our lines and the cooperation with Reifenhäuser was simple and straightforward", says Frederik Schaefer, CEO of CaPlast. "Especially in the early days of our involvement in this market sector, Reifenhäuser actively supported us in finding the right partners. These beginnings have already resulted in a very valuable and, above all, sustainable cooperation, and this across all stages of the value chain. The fast and efficient communication has certainly made a significant contribution to overcoming the extreme shortage of protective clothing," Schaefer continues.
