Surgical Face ShieldWorkers in the medical field use eye and face shields to protect themselves from hazardous or infectious fluid splashes. Face shields made of quality thermoplastics can be made to withstand heat, impact, chemicals, or other hazards.
Polycarbonate and Polyester (PET) Film are two common plastic materials used in the development of surgical face shields. Both materials are transparent and provide high optical clarity. Polycarbonate and PET are both light, and can be easily processed into almost any shape so manufacturers can design masks and shields to meet the needs of even the most complex applications.
