Saginaw Manufacturer Making Face Masks, Gowns From Plastic

The Saginaw based Duro-Last company is joining the fight to prevent the spread of COVID-19 by manufacturing much needed personal protective equipment for hospitals and other health care providers.

The company is the world’s largest manufacturer of custom-fabricated, thermoplastic roofing systems. It has devised a way to fabricate and manufacture isolation gowns and face masks. The gowns are made from flexible PVC, making them water and fluid-repellant. The masks are washable and reusable, made from polyester and PVC.

The company has gone from prototype to production to delivery in one week.
