Kimberly-Clark Professional Now Covers Sterile Laboratory and Cleanroom Workers from Head to Toe


Kimtech Pure Brand Sterile Apparel and Accessories Protect Processes and Personnel

ROSWELL, Ga. - Kimberly-Clark Professional now meets the needs of sterile cleanroom and laboratory operators worldwide with a comprehensive suite of innovative and comfortable sterile protection products. Sold under the Kimtech Pure brand, the products include sterile coveralls, with complementary hoods and boots; face masks; gloves; and wipers.

"The science of sterile protection is an exacting one," says Randy Kates, Kimberly-Clark Professional. "There's a lot riding on the ability to maintain a sterile work environment in terms of potential product rejects or recalls when a sterile field is compromised. Our bundle of products helps sterile cleanrooms and laboratories maintain their sterility more efficiently by offering a single global source for head-to-toe, peace-of-mind protection."

Kimtech Pure sterile products have a number of innovative and sustainable features:

o Apparel is breathable and designed to reduce the risk of contamination. Clean Don technology incorporates apparel design and packaging features that reduce the risk of contaminating the garment as it is being donned.
o Gloves combine the sensitivity of latex with the protection of nitrile. In addition, G3 Sterile Sterling nitrile gloves are environmentally responsible; innovative manufacturing and packaging technology delivers 50 percent more gloves per case than with traditional gloves.
o Masks have an enlarged breathing chamber for comfort and a more secure fit to reduce the risk of fogging and escaping particles. Exceptional bacterial filtration reduces the risk of contamination.
