The last thing a consumer wants to find in their food or pharmaceutical product is human hair and for this reason hygienic work environments are critical to businesses that make or package consumer food products, pharmaceuticals, assemble electronics or treat patients.
Hospitals need to keep wounds free from infection and factories can’t afford production shut downs or product recalls because of human contamination so many seek relief by implementing disposable bouffant hair caps for their production workers. Lightweight and comfortable to wear, they are inexpensive, simple to use and provide effective protection against product contamination. Bouffant caps or hair caps also keep an individuals hair out of their eyes when working and this increases productivity.
“Give me a pretty cloth hat or I’m dead!”A pediatric anesthesiologist wrote on Twitter last May.The ultimatum, along with other similarly emotive hashtags #Ban The Bouffant, was a call to arms for surgical headwear that began circulating in October 2017.
The medical professionals expressed their distaste for being forced to wear fluffy hats instead of the traditional cloth caps of surgeons, in a surprisingly heated debate over issues of tradition, safety and regulatory intervention.
In August, oncology surgeon David Gorski wrote on his blog Scientific-based Medicine that the condition has been called “a cage race without limits.”
Standing in one corner were most of the surgeons and anesthesiologists defending the cloth caps they had been using for decades.
The leotards, familiar from decades of hospital TV dramas, are often purchased by surgeons themselves and sometimes customized to their favorite patterns or the logos of sports teams.
On the other hand, the Association of Peri Surgical Registered Nurses, a standards-setting body, updated its operating room guidelines in 2015 to recommend the use of “hoods or hoods that limit all hair and completely cover the ears, scalp skin, sideburns and back of the neck.”
In practice, this means having a fluffy hat, which is a disposable hat, like a giant hairnet.
Surgeons and surgical nurses complain that fluffy hair is hot and environmentally friendly (it can’t be reused), and that it can cause headlights, magnifying glasses and other functional headpieces to slip during surgery.
But many people believe that even long hair can be pulled over the shaggy hair and ears, providing better protection against the risk of infection.
Hair nets are made of nylon or polyester mesh and are designed to stretch over the head and pad the hair, but if you look closely, you’ll notice the effect of weaving a web.
There are openings or holes in the webbing, which can inadvertently let hair through, just as a fluffy hat is made from a layer of fabric without holes.
Another difference between a hairnet and a bouffant hat is that when worn, the hairnet has a slightly camouflage feel, while the bouffant hat stands out and is easy to check for conformity.
The fluffy hats also provide a clean look for potential guests visiting the factory.
MDS Associates offers a variety of disposable fluffy hats for a wide variety of tasks.
They provide hygienic protection for a clean working environment, eliminate cross-contamination, and keep hair away from an individual’s face and eyes while working.

This soft, resilient proprietary nonwoven material provides superior protection and great breathability. Polypropylene: Textile polypropylene is the most economical and basic style of fluffy hats, commonly worn in dentistry, health care, medical research, pharmaceuticals, food service, and cleaning services.
This standard fabric is a very popular choice for basic protective clothing that requires conventional light spray and particulate protection.

Short message or multi-layered puffy hats are more opaque and “heavier” than polypropylene puffy hats.
They’re also breathable.
The protective barrier property consists of the inner layer of melt-blown polypropylene sandwiched between the outer layer of spunbonded polypropylene.
