PermaShield Pipe (PSP®) is a robust, corrosive-fume exhaust system combining the strength and versatility of stainless steel with the superior corrosion resistance of a fluoropolymer coating. Fab-Tech has perfected the process of bonding ETFE, a highly rated material for chemical resistance initially developed over a decade ago for the semiconductor industry, onto a substrate of noncombustible stainless steel. Used exclusively in the semiconductor industry since its introduction in 1993, PSP® has since risen to preeminent status, thus attracting the attention of other major industries, including life sciences and pharmaceutical, as well as pulp and paper, chemical processing, metals mining, petrochemical, and hazardous-waste disposal. When it comes to containing aggressive and potentially harmful fumes and chemicals, more and more engineers are discovering the many benefits of PermaShield Pipe. PSP is a fully engineered, modular, fume-exhaust system. It’s available in a wide range of standard fittings, from 2-inch up to 120-inch diameter: straight duct, tees, elbows, offsets, taps, reducers and control devices. Rounding out the product mix is an array of innovative accessory fittings to provide a system greater than the sum of its parts.

Securing the glove to the garment is an important aspect of gowning-whether to protect personnel or the integrity of the product. Micronova’s pre-cut adhesive strips are a simple, efficient way of effecting a secure seal. The linered polyethylene strips are packaged two per pack. Unlike more-aggressive industrial options, which can leave tacky adhesive residue or rip garments and gloves, the low-tack adhesive on Micronova’s polyethylene strips secures the tape but removes cleanly after use. Available in 2” and 3” widths x 18”, the Sleeve Seal Cuff Strips are also available irradiated. The cleanliness and chemical resistance of the materials lend the product to gowning protocols for biotechnology sites through to food production and first-responder applications. Sleeve Seal Cuff Strips are the most recent addition to Micronova’s range of cleanroom polyethylene, vinyl and specialty tapes. Also from Micronova, the SilSat polyester wipe is impregnated with a blend of medical-grade silicon and IPA. This lubricated wipe does away with the need to use spray lubricants in sensitive and controlled environments. Originally designed as a mold-release agent within medical device and injection molding facilities, this wipe is an obvious choice for maintaining fill lines and other equipment in pharmaceutical production and aseptic areas. The low-profile package is double-bagged and irradiated for stringent processing areas. SilSat will lubricate gaskets and seals in isolators, refrigerators and cabinets in processing and support areas. Micronova carries several other pre-sat wiper options-including NovaHol and MegaClean-for specific cleaning challenges.

Integrity 1800 has been the standard of performance for pharmaceutical cleanrooms for a decade and still today continues to prove its value at many prominent manufacturers worldwide. Integrity 1800 provides triple-barrier performance to protect both your products and your people. Features include: high filtration efficiency, from a fabric pore size of only 3 μm; fluid protection, from an extremely durable fluorochemical fabric treatment; and antimicrobial properties, from the proven performance of AEGIS MicrobeShield®. Integrity fabrics are woven and finished in the U.S. to be lightweight and comfortable. An extremely small pore size prohibits particulates from penetrating through Integrity fabrics in either direction. Unlike many single-use products, Integrity fabrics allow water vapor to easily pass through, thereby reducing uncomfortable humidity buildup inside the garment. The fluorochemical treatment helps prevent liquids, which may carry active bacteria, from penetrating the fabric and entering the work environment. The AEGIS MicrobeShield inhibits the growth of a wide range of bacteria on the fabric, thereby reducing the bioburden on the garment. Integrity 1800 fabrics incorporate ESD-conductive yarns that can withstand hundreds of launderings to provide an ecologically and economically safe solution for your cleanroom. Garments constructed from Integrity 1800 are available from many top-quality laundries and manufacturers throughout the world. The Integrity Barrier family of fabrics is produced in the U.S. by Precision Fabrics Group ,Inc., a leading manufacturer of high-performance specialty fabrics.
