Avery Dennison Adapts Production to Donate 500,000 Face Shields to Help Hospitals During COVID-19
Avery Dennison announced today that its medical business will produce personal protective equipment (PPE) during the COVID-19 pandemic. Avery Dennison Medical, based in Mentor, Ohio, has adapted manufacturing lines and started producing vital disposable plastic face shields for healthcare professionals, and persons that require additional protective equipment in their line of work.
The Disposable Plastic Face Shield is a protective clear anti-fog coated polyester plastic sheet that can be used two different ways. Its innovative design allows the user to wear it using the easy to assemble, integrated adjustable plastic headband, or the shield can be applied directly to the forehead or an article of clothing using the skin-friendly, gentle and repositionable adhesive tape strip. The face shield is designed with user comfort in mind and accommodates the wearing of face masks or respirators.
