AmorSui, the personal protective equipment (PPE) brand, announces a product line expansion featuring a lab coat in men’s and women’s sizes, fire-resistant clothing, including a first-of-its-kind fire-resistant hijab, and reusable isolation gowns.

Focus on Sustainability

Sustainability is a key focus of AmorSui’s line. The company’s products are reusable and recyclable, to reduce waste from disposal of PPE. AmorSui’s line is also designed to be more inclusive, with products fit all shapes and sizes.

“For years, PPE has done little to actually protect the wearer and even less to protect the planet,” said Dr Beau Wangtrakuldee, founder and chief executive officer of AmorSui. “This has left those in some of the most important industries exposed. We are changing that, ensuring frontline workers are protected while doing the work they love and setting a new standard for PPE.”

Inspiration from Personal Experience

Wangtrakuldee founded AmorSui after a chemical spill in the lab left her with severe burns. She was wearing proper PPE at the time, but the improper sizing and insufficient materials did little to protect her.

Product Features and Design

Each product is designed with the wearer in mind. The lab coat offers fluid and odor resistance, ten multi-use pockets, secure ribbed knit cuffs, a back vent for enhanced breathability and mobility, and more. Specifically, AmorSui’s women’s lab coat includes an adjustable waist drawcord for a custom fit. The isolation gowns are crafted from fluid-repellent fabric that is also soft. Additionally, they feature adjustable neck snaps and side ties to ensure the best fit for the wearer.

AmorSui’s proprietary textile formulations are designed to ensure durable fluid and odor resistance, meeting safety standards across a number of industries for up to 100 washes.

End-of-Life and Recycling Program

At the end of a product’s life, AmorSui’s take-back program allows customers to return the product to the company to be recycled into other products, keeping it out of the landfill.

AmorSui’s subscription program provides professional laundering of its products so healthcare systems and other large organizations can reduce their PPE waste. Just 100 AmorSui isolation gowns can replace 10,000 disposable isolation gowns, according to the company, resulting in a 3,750-pound reduction in waste and long-term cost savings.

“AmorSui’s lab coat fabric is a blend of polyester, rayon, and spandex. The isolation gown is made from polyester that is recyclable,” said Will McGinn, chief operating officer of AmorSui. “At the end of their life, our products can be shredded or turned into a pulp to produce car interiors, airplane seats, artificial joints, and tarp fabrics, among other various use cases. We believe that circularity is the future.”
