What is the difference between the function of isolation clothing and protective clothing

1. Different materials:

The fabrics used in isolation suits include: fabrics containing conductive silk, gabardine, yarn cards, TYVEK (anti-acid and alkali-proof), etc. 100% high-density polyethylene material, one-piece hooded design, breathable and moisture-permeable, can block the penetration of fine dust and liquids, and at the same time allow water vapor to permeate; light and tough, prevent the accumulation of static electricity, it does not produce dust , Free of silicon.

It is made of special polyester filament, warp or warp and weft inlaid with Belltron® 9R series conductive fiber of Japan Bell Textile, and manufactured by a special process. Has excellent, long-lasting conductivity. It is a necessary measure for anti-static of personnel clothing.

Protective clothing, in addition to meeting the requirements of high strength and high wear resistance, is often different due to different protection purposes and protection principles. It is synthesized from natural materials such as cotton, wool, silk, and lead, rubber, plastic, resin, synthetic fiber, etc. Materials, to contemporary new functional materials and composite materials. It has the characteristics of anti-permeation, good permeability, high strength and high resistance to hydrostatic pressure.

2. Different uses:

isolation clothing is used in the isolation area, that is, in the hospital, and protective clothing is used in the CDC.

3. It is also different for patients:

Wear a gown: contact patients with infectious diseases transmitted by contact, such as patients with disease-transmitted diseases and patients with multi-drug resistant bacteria; implement protective isolation for patients, such as patients with extensive burns and patients with bone transplantation; prevent patients from being infected Infected when blood, body fluids, secretions, feces are splashed. In short, the isolation gown is used for patients with strict isolation, contact isolation and protective isolation.

Wear protective clothing: When exposed to airborne and droplet-borne infectious disease patients, they may be splashed by blood, body fluids, secretions, and feces. But this kind of patient is not very serious but just a general infection.
