Medical Gown Testing

Innovations in textile performance properties have resulted in the need for medical textiles suppliers to demonstrate functional properties such as antimicrobial, waterproof, and soil release, as well as safety attributes like flammability, through testing and verification. As a result, Middle East Testing Services LLC (METS Lab) has identified capabilities throughout our laboratory network to support medical textile suppliers for Medical gown testing. Below are the parameters tested for the Gown.

  • Impact penetration (AATCC 42), for AAMI PB70 levels 1, 2 and 3
  • Hydrostatic resistance (AATCC 127), for AAMI PB70 levels 2 and 3
  • Viral penetration resistance (ASTM D1671) for AAMI PB70 level 4
  • Tensile strength (ASTM D5034)
  • Tear resistance for woven (ASTM D5587)
  • Tear resistance for non-woven (ASTM
