Innovation, choice and flexibility in healthcare


Face masks and protective garments

Fabrican’s sprayable fabric technology in combination with robotic spray technology offers a revolutionary method of rapidly manufacturing face masks and protective garments. The technology also facilitates low-capital, local production in many parts of the world and the manufacture of variable sizes and shapes without the need for expensive or complex retooling.

Transdermal Drug Delivery

Transdermal drug delivery is a system of administering drugs through patches placed on the skin. The most widely known form is the nicotine patch. Transdermal delivery has many advantages over other drug delivery systems, such as:

  • Controlled release of the drug into the patient
  • Enables a steady blood-level profile
  • Reduces systemic side effects (less stress on internal organs such as the liver and the stomach)
  • Non-invasive drug delivery system

The use of Spray on Fabrics for patches combines traditional advantages with the aesthetic sensibilities of Fabrican.

Patients are able to choose a spray that matches their skin tone to better hide the patch, making them less self-conscious.

Alternatively, they could choose bright colours and apply a design of their own choosing, coordinating the patch with their own personal fashion and style.

When samples were made the concentration in the patches was comparable to standard nicotine patches (delivery of 10 micro grams).

There was no detrimental effect to the performance of the spray or the quality of the final fabric.

Hygiene Covers

Fabrican may also be used to create waterproof, yet flexible and soft coverings. In this respect it is an ideal resource for hospitals, hospices, hotels, or anywhere that has lots of beds. And can benefit from are the strength and hard-wearing attributes of Fabrican.
