May 06, 2020 - India

Ambala-based NUFAB Technical Textiles recently claimed to have developed a unique non-woven fabric that will significantly reduce infection risk to medical workers facing heightened risk amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The light-weight fabric is soft, comfortable, impregnable, permeable and breathable, which can reduce the infection risk by up to 90 per cent.

The value-added fabric is certified and approved by the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) and is useful in making coveralls, gowns and other personal protective equipment, according to Indian media reports.

NUFAB director Salil Goyal said the fabric is recyclable and eco-friendly as well.
