RCR International Pty Ltd  specialises in the supply of a wide range of disposable protective clothing products for use in diverse environments.

Contamination control is a major concern for most existing and advanced manufacturing environments.

Disposable protective clothing is widely used in medical, pharmaceutical, research and food industries where control of contamination in the surrounding environment is critical.

Contaminants such as hair, sweat, skin flakes, dandruff, clothing threads, dust, bacteria, viruses, pollen, fungal spores, insects, chemicals, water and aerosols among others are carried into facilities by workers, products and packaging materials.

Where a physical barrier is required, and cleanliness and hygiene is critical, single use disposable garments may be the solution.

Key advantages of disposable protective clothing

  • Disposables help regulate contamination control safely and consistently
  • Better control over disposal and re-issue of fresh garments without worries of collection, washing or cleanliness of reusable items

The Pro-Val range of disposable protective clothing supplied by RCR International provides an efficient cross contamination barrier, protecting people, product and processes.
