For medical products

Vital components of care

The healthcare sector sets very demanding performance and quality requirements for all products – also for nonwovens. Suominen’s offering meets these demands, thanks to our ability to produce value-adding nonwoven products in high-quality manufacturing environment, using standardized methods.

With our expertise in raw materials and technologies, we are able to manufacture substrates that are tailor-made to match specific customer and patient needs, requirements and also global standards. The desired properties may vary from softness, skin-friendliness and conformability to strength and high absorption.

Our nonwovens for medical products can be used in a wide range of applications where safety, comfort and high performance are required – from wound care to patient cleaning. In addition, when it comes to operating room essentials, we cover everything, from head to toe. Our surgical materials are often unseen but they add value, for instance, in linings for caps, and comfort layers and ties for masks and gowns. In surgical drapes, Suominen’s nonwovens bring enhanced fluid management in critical zones.
