This forms part of the general work wear outfit in polyester, worn by those filling ampoules with drug solutions. Polyester (sometimes referred to as a 'workhorse fibre') is ideal as a basis for such garments as it has high strength, is wrinkle resistant and therefore can be easily and effectively sterilised after use.
