Precision Fabrics Introduces Integrity® 1900 And 1950 Fabrics For Protective Apparel

Greensboro, N.C.-based Precision Fabrics Group Inc. (PFG) has added new fabrics to its Integrity® line of woven fabrics for cleanroom garments and other protective apparel.

Integrity 1900 — a 5-millimeter (mm) electrostatic discharge (ESD) grid construction — and Integrity 1950 — a 5-mm ESD stripe — offer improved breathability, heat transmission and moisture vapor transport for increased comfort while retaining the necessary air filtration properties, the company reports.

According to Steve Glosson, PFG's Integrity market manager, most fabrics traditionally used in cleanroom garments in the United States are constructed with a very tight weave to restrict pore size in the fabric, which makes the material an effective barrier but also restricts the garment's breathability. "Integrity 1900 and 1950 are woven with finer yarns than those used previously," Glosson said. "That enables us to weave these fabrics with more pores per square inch to improve breathability. And since the pore size is even smaller than that of conventional cleanroom fabrics, we don't give up any filtration efficiency."

The new Integrity fabrics are treated with MicrobeShield® antimicrobial finish, and an optional fluid-repellent finish is available. All of PFG's Integrity fabrics are certified to the Oeko-Tex® Standard 100.
