Challenges:

National Velour Corporation has a history of finding unique solutions for our client's flocked product needs through innovative research and design. A manufacturer of medical devices needed a product to be designed that fulfilled the specifications of their concept while being safe and comfortable for a hospital patient to wear for an extended period of time. The final device would also need to be air and water-tight.

Solution/Results:

Our technical department worked with our vendors to identify materials that would not react with skin and would absorb moisture while inhibiting any bacterial growth. We met our customer's specifications by manufacturing products with flocked vinyl and urethane substrates along with cotton. After lab samples, production trials, FDA testing, and field studies, we now have various programs providing flocked products for the medical and personal care industries. This project was completed with a turnaround time of just four weeks, with these medical products now used nationwide.
