Alpex Protection has been manufacturing technical textiles for more than twenty years to equip the army, law enforcement, firefighters, etc. In recent months, it has developed a new range intended for a completely different market: that of washable hygienic protection.
Ranging from French army weather protection parkas to firefighter balaclavas to washable diapers and menstrual pants, this might come as a surprise! “But in fact, washable sanitary protection is typically an assembly of materials, with a textile backing and a waterproof and breathable membrane. It is the know-how and expertise of Alpex Protection, which we were able to put to good use in a market that we knew little about”, underlines Loïc Bourgeon, technical sales engineer.
