Soft, non-irritating
A unique portfolio of remarkably soft, comfortable, and protective medical fabrics.

Whether you need an inner or outer face mask layer, or surigcal gown, Ahlstrom-Munksjö has you covered. Our high performing medical fabrics are used to protect patients, health care and frontline workers worldwide.

Our unique technology produces super soft fabrics used to make a face mask that is extremely comfortable for the wearer.  TenderGuard™ Natural consists of our wetlaid fabrics that are used as the inner or outer layer of a face mask.  These fabrics are environmentally friendly and, the inner layer is hypoallergenic.

With our inner and outer layers together, TenderGuard™ Natural achieves nearly 50% Bacterial Filtration Efficiency.  Accomplishing that level of efficiency with only the inner and outer layer is remarkable as the middle layer generally provides most of the filtration in a face mask.

TenderGuard™ Smooth consists of our bicomponent spunbond fabrics that are made with a proprietary technology that minimizes raised fibers.  This creates a smooth surface to help eliminate any skin irritation which is essential when it comes to a face mask.  TenderGuard™ Smooth is strong and flexible allowing for the opportunity of high speed production.

TenderGuard™ SMS is our surgical fabric that is designed soft for superior comfort, has low lint and offers lower basis weights.  It has high repellency to protect against low surface tension liquids such as blood, body fluids and alcohol.
