Kimberly-Clark Professional added the Kimtech A5 Sterile Integrated Hood and Mask XL for head shapes, sizes, and hairstyles that pose a challenge to standard aseptic gowning for cleanroom operators.

Kimberly-Clark Professional added the Kimtech A5 Sterile Integrated Hood and Mask XL for head shapes, sizes, and hairstyles that pose a challenge to standard aseptic gowning for cleanroom operators.

The new gowning size combines two donning steps (hood and mask) into one, simplifying the donning process and further reducing the risk of contamination. This sterile product features a stretch-fit elastic hood and opening, tunneled overseams to prevent particle shedding, and Clean-Don Technology ties for a more secure fit. Additionally, the company says it provides free fittings. 

The company also reports that the hood and mask can be diverted from landfills through The RightCycle Program, a large-scale recycling program for non-hazardous lab, cleanroom, and industrial waste. The program turns used apparel, gloves, and protective eyewear into new consumer goods.
