Urgent need for PPE patterns and specifications

COVID-19, Industry News, News | April 6, 2020 | By:

As the industry works together to address the vast personal protective equipment (PPE) needs, Industrial Fabrics Association International (IFAI) is searching for patterns or specification information fabricators are willing to share with the industry at large. The hope is to publicly post designs for masks and gowns to enable manufacturing by more IFAI members. Some IFAI members are manufacturing medical grade products, but many more are also looking to manufacture non-medical grade products that meet baseline specification or designs.

Any patterns or other information will be added to IFAI’s COVID-19 Resources Center page with credit given to the source. To submit patterns, reach out to Janelle Buerkley at IFAI by emailing her here. For further COVID-19 related questions or support, please email IFAI by clicking here.

IFAI continues to work with its partners at NCTO, INDA, SEAMS and the U.S. Government to bring its members the latest resources and news on the COVID-19 industry response.
