Elsanek, as an essential service in the manufacturing of fabrics for hospitals and healthcare centres, is working harder than ever to supply fabrics for the manufacture of masks, gowns and uniforms for medical teams who are fighting the Covid-19 crisis.
By way of example, in just a fortnight, Elsanek has provided fabric to make 800,000 protective masks.
The whole team is working, with all necessary protection measures in place, to contribute to the supply of healthcare centres.
Now more than ever, the need for fabrics with the highest level of protection is of the utmost importance.
The advantages of Olefine Technology, exclusive to Elsanek, have been manifest across the whole of Spain and in Europe in the context of this pandemic.
Elsanek fabrics are certified by the European Standard EN13795 and have levels of resistance to dry microbial penetration (CFU), 10 times below the maximum penetration limit required by the standard, thereby ensuring a minimum risk of infections and contagion.
In addition, they are hypo-allergenic (Acute Dermal Irritation/Corrosion OECD 404 regulations and the maximum grade of the Oeko-Tex Class I standard), they can be easily sterilised (they do not attract airborne dust particles), they have a lifecycle of between 400-500 industrial washing cycles, and they are sustainable and cost-effective because they can be used over and over again.
We want to express our gratitude to the entire Elsanek team for their hard work and effort over these last few days, as well as to our suppliers and partners. Together, we have managed to do out bit in this fight.
Together, we will get through this.
