Transfers for Medical Textiles
Kaumagraph Transfers are used on medical isolation gowns, scrubs, hospital linens, surgical drapes and more. Reusable medical textiles need to be washed in an industrial medical laundry to ensure proper sanitation in a medical environment.
Many hospitals and clinics prefer to mark their scrubs and linens with “Property of xxx Health System” or simply the Hospital/Clinic logo. Property marks help reduce theft of the product while promoting and branding the hospital. Secondly different departments may choose to mark staff uniforms with the departmen for easy recognition in a busy clinical atmosphere.
Reusable Isolation Gowns are in significant demand after the onset of Covid-19. Isolation gowns have a protection rating of 1-4. Commonly a Kaumagraph Transfer is used to label the gown with the protection rating. Since many isolation gowns are rated for up to 100 washes, it is important that the transfer also survive 50/75/100 washes depending on the garment rating.
QC Grids for Wash Counting
Quality Control Grids are very common on isolaton gowns. After each wash cycle, the laundry checks a box to ensure the number of washes is recorded on each gown. The transfer of course needs to survive the minimum number of washes each gown is rated for. The durability of a Kaumagraph Transfer ensures the grid will last the laundry cycles so each gown can get the maximum use in the clinical environment.
