Ahlstrom Expands SMS Technology Within Its Medical Sterile Barrier Systems Offering

Ahlstrom, a global high performance fiber-based materials company, extends its range of Sterile Barrier Systems (SBS). Ahlstrom Reliance® Tandem's extended range now offers sterile barrier systems designed for light to heavy medical instrument trays.

The expanded portfolio consists of grades ranging from a light 35 gsm to heavy 85 gsm, in four main colors: green, light blue, medium blue and deep blue. "The variety of weights allows our customers to better meet hospitals' needs. The expanded range can be used to wrap light packs all the way up to heavy instrument sets," states Product Manager, Mark Berman.
The Ahlstrom Reliance® Tandem range utilizes Ahlstrom's most advanced SMS (spunbond-meltblow-spunbond) technology, in combination with our wetlaid and crepe technologies, to provide the optimal combination of sterile barrier systems for sequential wrapping. Sequential wrapping or interleaving combines two Ahlstrom SBS wrap sheets. The two sheets, when used together, offer a higher degree of flexibility in terms of performance, technology, and cost.
