Ahlstrom boasts a long history in the manufacturing of high-performance sterilization wraps. Over the years, our products have been extensively used in healthcare facilities worldwide, bringing a key contribution to the protection of patients from hospital-acquired infections.
We’ve combined our best technologies into our new Reliance® Fusion, a next-generation sterilization wrap.
Reliance® Fusion is made of two distinct layers:
- INNER LAYER: ABSORBENT WETLAID NONWOVEN, made with cellulose, synthetic binder and PET fibers, resulting in a softer and stronger cellulose-based fabric.
OUTER LAYER: SMS NONWOVEN, a strong and durable technology, with low lint and high barrier. The outer layer is made of 100% polypropylene and treated to resist static charge.
The Reliance® Fusion portfolio consists of a simpler two-model sterilization wrap system (Light and Heavy), available for two widely used wrapping techniques (simultaneous and sequential). The two basis weight options are capable of replacing all six traditional Reliance® Solo and Reliance® Tandem type models while offering superior pre-vacuum steam drying time performance under high tray weight conditions.
