NC State University Webinar Series: Classifications and Testing Requirements for PPE in Medical Environments and Personal Use

June 2 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Textile manufacturers have responded to the COVID-19 crisis in unprecedented ways, rapidly retooling production lines to manufacture materials and products for PPE. Many of these companies face challenges from understanding performance requirements and new materials, to navigating a challenging maze of testing requirements and use guidelines.

Learn about the various classifications of PPE and the tests required for each level. FDA and NIOSH testing will be covered for gowns, facemasks, respirators and coveralls, as well as recommended testing for general purpose face coverings.
