Surgical gown material guide
SMS stands for Spunbond/Meltblown/Spunbond. It is a synthetic material made from polypropylene.
- Spunbond, located outside of the fabric, provides strength to the product.
- Meltblown, on the inside of the fabric, provides the repellency to the product.
The layers are bonded together with point bonds or heat (small dots, oval or diamond) that hold all the fibres together.

Material platforms: Spunlace
Spunlace is a soft textile-like material made from pulp/polyester nonwoven fibers. It is produced with more than 50% bio-based material.
• The spunlace fabric is a tissue layer on the outside of the gown, which provides increased comfort.
• Polyester fibres on the inside of the gown provide strength. The fibres are embedded into the tissue with water jets.
Because the tissue is naturally absorbent, the fabric is always treated with fluorochemical to make it blood repellent.
