Towelling maker Dyckhoff uses Trevira Bioactive textiles for hospital & care sector

May '05
Rheine-based terry towelling manufacturer Dyckhoff is extending its range of Trevira Bioactive textiles for the hospital and care sectors. Following the introduction of hand towels and bathrobes in antimicrobial terry towelling qualities, the company can now supply antimicrobial bedding and reusable underlays for beds.

Reusable underlays in Trevira Bioactive
The underlay is made up of four layers in which the functions of the materials complement each other. The top side consists of Trevira Bioactive knitted towelling, which is both antimicrobial and kind to the skin. This is laminated with absorbent fleece, which serves to conduct liquids away from the body, to be absorbed by the fleece. It has the capacity to absorb six times its weight in moisture.

Underneath this is a PET membrane that acts as a barrier against moisture, but is at the same time permeable to air and steam. The result is that damp cannot build up beneath the underlay, and prevents any temperature block. The conductance performance of this layer is 4 l/m2 in 24 h (at 23°C. In addition, an underside in PET crepe stops the underlay from sliding on the mattress, providing a stable lying position.

The underlay is breathable and also watertight and impermeable to urine and blood. It can absorb liquids to 480 ml/m2. The reusable underlay comes in sizes 75 x 90 cm or can be made to measure.

Trevira Bioactive reusable underlays are economic to use. Due to their antimicrobial properties the underlays are not only hygienic, they are also hardwearing, can be boil washed and spin-dried, and offer clear cost benefits to the user compared with single-use articles.
