Page 42 of 44 42 product locator ICT January/February 2019 Decontamination Gowns Healthmark Industries Co., Inc. introduces its decontamination gowns to its personal protective equipment product line. Designed for use in device reprocessing areas, the decontamination gowns meet AAMI PB70 Class 4 requirements for liquid barrier performance while providing a high level of strikethrough resistance in the most vulnerable zone, protecting healthcare workers from soil and bioburden when cleaning items. The single-use (one person/one day) decontamination gowns are comprised of two materials. The upper and lower zones are manufactured of a breathable material that is AAMI PB70 Class 4 that passes ASTM F1670 & F1671 test methods. The middle zone is manufactured of a completely liquid impervious zone, including preventing strikethrough of detergent cleaning solutions, even when physically leaning against sinks or other cleaning baths. The wrap-around Decontamination Gowns (360o coverage) come with elastic wrists, thumb loops, as well as neck and waist ties long enough to tie in the front or back. Use of the gowns eliminates the need for wearing a plastic apron, or other secondary protection, even while providing superior protection. This improves worker comfort and dexterity. Sizes range from small/medium, large/x-large, XXL-XXXL, and XXXXL.
