A PPE suit consists of six items: coveralls, gloves, shoe covers, mask-three ply or N 95 (with or without respirator), head gear and face shield. The facility at Silvassa is manufacturing PPE coverall suits which are single piece zip-up suits and give complete over protection. The coverall hems are closed with anti-microbial tape.
RIL is using high grade polypropylene to produce the equipment lending it more opacity while keeping it light weight. In addition, ethylene oxide is added to the material for improved sterilisation. The material and manufacturing processes follow the ISO and BIS standards acceptable in India.
"Production started in mid-April and has been quickly ramped up to produce more than 100,000 PPE per day now," Fibre2Fashion has learnt from a reliable source. This constitutes a significant proportion of India’s daily PPE production.
Reliance has also been able to bring down the pricing of the PPE to nearly ₹650 per PPE, a significant drop compared to the nearly ₹2,000 per piece India was incurring earlier for import.
The availability of high-quality and low-cost PPEs from RIL are expected to significantly boost India’s effectiveness in handling the COVID-19 emergency.
