The first thing to do in case of contact dermatitis consists in avoiding every contact with the responsible substance.
For this reason Alpretec designed and patented the Microair® Barrier Fabric. Thanks to its barrier effect prevents allergens/irritants getting in contact with the skin but still lets it breathe.
It is a three-layer fabric, made of a knitted polyester microfiber with piqué construction (1+3), while the internal layer is a microporous membrane (2) that blocks allergens, allowing the passage of water vapour and sweat.
Alpretec has designed two products made of MICROAIR® Barrier Fabric:
> total barrier against allergens and irritating substances;
> high transpiration (Wicking capacity=1062 gr/m2/24h);
> comfortable and easy to use;
> machine washing at 60-90°C (autoclave washing and drying according to hospital standards are allowed).
Microair Barrier Socks and Gloves are Medical Devices Class I CE and Personal Protective Equipment Class 1.
