Barricada–series are made of 3ply laminates. The outer fabric is a Polyester Knit with different weights depending the use. The inner fabric is also a polyester knit. Inside the two fabrics, there is a PU membrane glued to the inner and outer knit with PU dots. The chemical structure of the membrane is a microporeus PU. The membrane gives a barrier to liquid, blood, bacteria and viruses But thanks to the microporeus structure, the membrane is still breathable.
Mainly used for surgical gowns an drapes. Due to the microporeus structure, Barricada can also be used for other technical purposes like filtration and VPRI molding.
A less used end use is every purpose where waterproofness is needed but breathability is necessary (roof isolation).
