Softesse® medical fabric
When you’re protected and comfortable in the O.R., you’re in control and able to focus on what you’re doing. Being uncomfortable in the O.R. can be incredibly distracting. So we created a workhorse fabric that doesn’t feel like one. Originally called DuPont™ Sontara®, it has been renamed Softesse® medical fabric, a name that better describes this comfortably soft fabric for gowns and drapes. In some regions of the world, it will be called DuPont™ Sontara® Softesse®.
DuPont™ Softesse® spunlaced fabric is soft to the touch with advanced material technology that provides effective barrier protection against liquid penetration. Plus, it keeps you cool, fresh and comfortable while you work. For more than 30 years, it has been considered an industry standard for medical gowns and drapes, meeting the everyday needs of O.R. personnel around the world.
