Disposable Medical Isolation Gown and Material Manufacturer List

The coronavirus pandemic has created a global shortage of personal protective equipment (PPEs), including disposable medical gowns and isolation gown material. There are several types of medical gowns, such as isolation gowns (P1, Level 1 equivalent) and protective non-woven coveralls (P2/P3, Level3/4 equivalent). Taiwanese suppliers of disposable medical gowns/isolation gown material are leaders in the market, benefiting from Taiwan’s stable, high-quality supply chain.

All of the raw materials we use to manufacture disposable medical gowns are produced in Taiwan with specific respect to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs). Additionally, all product quality, deliveries and customer services are fully supported by our supply chain. Furthermore, all materials and finished products are tested and certified by the Taiwan Textile Research Institute (TTRI), which is ISO-12705 approved and accredited by the Taiwan Accreditation Foundation (TAF) (0491).

Taiwan has been praised for its highly effective and successful COVID-19 response, which includes early screening of flights, the tracking of individual cases and strong support of the PPE supply chain.

The swift actions taken by the Ministry of Economic Affairs (i.e., Bureau of Foreign Trade, TAITRA, Industrial Development Bureau) and the Ministry of Health and Welfare to unite the Taiwan textile and apparel industry has created effective and efficient production lines for PPEs, including high-quality face masks, disposable medical gowns, isolation gown material and protective coveralls.
