Selecting the most appropriate Sterile Barrier System (SBS) for use in the Central Sterilization Service Department (CSSD) is a challenging responsibility and plays a key role in infection prevention and patient safety.

Ahlstrom-Munksjö Reliance® single-use sterilization wraps help to prevent microorganisms (bacteria, viruses, spores) from easily gaining access to the tray content, allow sterilization, provide physical protection, maintain sterility up to the point of use and allow aseptic presentation.

Our Reliance® product range is comprised of various types of fabric, manufactured from 100% cellulose (crepe paper), cellulose + synthetic fibers (wetlaid nonwoven) and 100% synthetic fibers (SMS).

Join the 21st World Sterilization Congress, November 17-20th, and learn more about our full range!

Reliance® crepe paper

Crepe paper for sterilization wrap, tray liner and overwrap made with more than 97% of cellulosic fibers and wet strength agents. This technology has excellent barrier properties with moisture absorption capacity.

Reliance® crepe paper meets all requirements for safe and reliable wrapping, combining excellent sterility maintenance and bacterial barrier. The different colors and basis weights can accommodate diverse sterile barrier systems (SBS) requirements.

  • Best in Class bacterial barrier with BFE >99% in double-layer (BFE: Bacterial Filtration Efficiency as per ASTM F2101 – 19)
  • Helps to prevent wet-packs thanks to cellulosic material
  • Cost-effective wrapping solution

Reliance® wetlaid nonwoven

The wetlaid nonwoven technology for Sterile Barrier Systems (SBS) is ideal for the packaging of medical devices requiring higher resistance, thanks to its composition of cellulose and synthetic fibers. The softer and stronger cellulose-based material provides physical protection to trays, maintaining surgical instruments’ sterility up to the point of use.

Reliance® wetlaid nonwovens, composed of cellulose, synthetic binder and PET fibers, create a tortuous path for excellent sterility maintenance. Thanks to its composition, this technology is softer and stronger, allowing to better meet end users’ requirements.

Reliance® wetlaid nonwovens, available in two colors and three basis weights, are micrexed for increased drapeability and comfort.

  • Helps to prevent wet-packs thanks to cellulosic material
  • Soft and strong thanks to synthetic fibers and binders
  • Low lint according to ISO 9073-10 : 2003

Reliance® SMS

SMS is composed of three meltblown layers of microscopic fibers, delivering a tortuous path for consistent bacteriological barrier and sterility maintenance. This technology is strong and durable, with low lint and higher barrier.

Ahlstrom-Munksjö Reliance® SMS (Spunbond Meltblown Spunbond) is 100% polypropylene and treated to resist charge build-up. It does not contain cellulose or synthetic binder and its composition makes this technology especially suitable for the most demanding uses, both for inner and outer wraps.

Reliance® SMS is available in two colors and six basis weights to satisfy different user requirements.

  • Liquid repellent and antistatic according to ISO 811 : 2018 and IST 40.2
  • High strength according to ISO 1924-2 : 2008, ISO 1974 : 2012 and ISO 2758 : 2014 to avoid rips, tears or punctures
  • Drapeability according to ISO 9073-9 : 2008

Reliance® Solo

Bonded sterile barrier system solutions for easy to use, simultaneous wrapping. Like sequential wrapping, the two bonded SMS sheets create a tortuous path delivering aseptic presentation of medical instruments at the point of use

Reliance® Solo non-sequential wrapping system offers flexible and simplified wrapping.

The two bonded SMS sheets help prevent microorganisms (bacteria, viruses, spores) from easily gaining access to the tray content and the two colors allow for easy identification of damage from transport and storage, playing a key role in infection prevention and patient safety.

Lotcode is printed on every application.

  • Simplified wrapping process
  • Simultaneous aseptic unwrapping in the operating room
  • High strength according to ISO 1924-2 : 2008, ISO 1974 : 2012 and ISO 2758 : 2014 to avoid rips, tears or punctures
  • Lotcode printed on every application

Reliance® Tandem

Interleaved sterile barrier system solutions consisting of one sheet for inner wrap and a second sheet for outer wrap. The combination of different colors and technologies provides the optimal combination for sequential wrapping, increasing efficiency and productivity.

Reliance® Tandem combines different technologies and grammages to provide the optimal solution for sequential wrapping. Cellulose, featuring high moisture absorption, can be combined with SMS for improved strength.

Crepe paper, wetlaid and SMS can be interleaved with different colors to ensure the benefits associated to visual differentiation.

  • Inner and outer wraps of different colors for easier visual differentiation
  • Combination of different technologies for improved performance
  • Easier identification of damages thanks to the superposition of the two colored layers
