Medline DuPont Enter Marketig Relationship

Mundelein, Ill.-based Medline Industries Inc. and Wilmington, Del.-based DuPont Medical Fabrics have entered into a marketing relationship in which DuPont will provide its spunlaced fabric for Medlines Proxima line of disposable protective surgical apparel and products.According to the companies, DuPonts spunlaced fabric combines the natural feel of cotton with advances in material technology to provide a splash-resistant barrier. DuPont adds that the fabric has high drapability and softness, which optimize wearer comfort and dexterity. Moreover, the manufacturing process uses no binders, chemicals or adhesives, resulting in a high-purity fabric structure and minimizing the possibility of product contamination and allergic reactions by users.Medline also will incorporate a high-tech fabric still under development by DuPont into its Proxima line later this year.
