The Difference Between Protective Medical Gowns and Cloth Isolation Gowns

The main difference between medical protective clothing and cloth isolation gowns is that medical protective clothing is more durable than coverall isolation gowns, with higher protection levels and better protective performance. In addition to meeting the requirements of high-strength, high-abrasion, etc., the two are often different due to different protection purposes and protection principles. Although protective medical gowns are better than cloth isolation gowns, the cost is relatively high, so for different jobs, the choice of protective gowns is also different.


1. The difference between medical protective clothing and cloth isolation gowns
