We know that medical staff usually wear white lab coats, nurse uniforms, surgical gowns, etc. You know the appearance of these clothes, but do you know what kind of fabric medical clothing is made of? Dalian Sidell Workwear Tips: We simply divide them into two categories, natural fabrics and non-natural fabrics, and then subdivide them.

Natural fabrics include cotton, linen, silk, cashmere/wool, and leather. But the only natural fabric used for medical clothing is cotton. After all, the other four are too far apart in price and practicality. Cotton, as the most common natural fabric, more than 50% of garments are made of cotton textiles. According to the content of cotton, cotton cloth can be divided into pure cotton and non-pure cotton fabric. The advantages are: surgical gowns made of cotton cloth, hand-washing gowns are soft and close-fitting, have good moisture absorption and air permeability, and are relatively durable. Of course, there are also disadvantages. They are easy to shrink and wrinkle, need to be ironed, and become hard after washing too much.

In the impression of sticking to the rules, we always assume that natural fabrics are better than artificial non-natural fabrics. In fact, most medical clothing brands on the market are made of non-natural fabrics, which shows that non-natural fabrics have their own advantages. The non-natural fabrics used in medical clothing are generally synthetic fibers in chemical fibers, such as nylon, polyester, acrylic, and spandex. In general, these chemical fiber fabrics are colorful, soft, draped, smooth and comfortable. In addition to being used as fabrics for medical clothing, they can also be used as fabrics for other ordinary clothing. However, some of the fabrics have poor abrasion resistance, heat resistance, moisture absorption, and air permeability, and are easy to deform and generate static electricity.

The fabric determines the texture of clothing, even for work clothes such as medical clothing, while emphasizing practicality, it is necessary to pay attention to texture. Because good fabrics can make the whole person look advanced, make doctors and nurses look refreshed, thereby enhancing patients’ confidence in medical care.
