Laminated medical shields from Poly Shield, Pickerington, Ohio, are created for use in critical medical applications, including those involving exposure of personnel to the ebola virus. Made from highly durable, thin polymer material, the films can be used as an integral face shield or as an add-on to strengthen existing face shields.
Each film includes multiple layers that can be easily removed to reveal a pristinesheet, increasing safety by removing the need to change or sanitize shields and reducing personnel’s exposure to the virus.
The shields contain no air bubbles and are bacteria-proof, since there are no air gaps between layers where bacteria and other infection-spreading bacteria could accumulate. The films are highly transparent and include an antireflection surface that reduces glare from lighting.
