Technical specifications

  • Nitrile rubber of light colour (including back waist ties and neck strap)
    • Nitrile rubber (NBR‌ = nitrile butadiene rubber) is a synthetic rubber copolymer. The physical and chemical properties vary depending on the polymer's composition of nitrile. NBR is generally resistant to oil, fuel, and other chemicals (the more nitrile within the polymer, the higher the resistance to oils but the lower the flexibility of the material).
  • Straight bib apron, seamless, liquid proof and stain resistant
  • Long back waist ties and adjustable neck strap allowing for easy donning and doffing
  • Dimensions: 70-90 cm (width) x 120-150cm (height)
  • Good resistance to common cleaning products (chlorine, bleach, washing powder, soaps...)
  • Good resistance to tearing and perforation: thickness = 300 - 400 µm
  • No metal rings
  • Non sterile, reusable

Precautions for Use

Inspect the apron before each use to make sure there are no strike throughs, degradation of the material and that it still protects the user from exposure to blood and body fluids as well as any cleaners and disinfectants.


Send to the laundry for correct processing: cleaning with soap and disinfecting with a chlorinated solution. Do not mix both.

Do not sterilise by steam autoclave.

Destroy if damaged (perforated, torn, etc.).
