Acetate sheet wanted for NHS face masks

4
Posted 26th Mar
Anybody know who can provide 200 = 500 micron (0.2 to 0.5mm) acetate sheet, to be fitted to 3d printed face protection masks? I know you can buy small packs online, but the developers at this Children's Hospital can make 100 an hour, if they can get the materials. Any made in the UK, or supplied in bulk? A technique has been developed by hospital technicians in Glasgow, helping them to produce more than 100 face visors an hour.

"Staff

at the orthotic department at the Royal Hospital for Children in

Glasgow have turned to making the visors to boost supplies and plan to

pass their design to hospitals across the country.

They are now appealing for material to make the protective equipment.

Anyone who can help with supplying 0.2-0.5mm acetate sheets is asked to contact orthotic lead Melville Dixon at melville.dixon@ggc.scot.nhs.uk"

Amazon and then contact seller direct as they would have supply or supplier
Face mask or ventilator mask? I know our local hoapital uses the ventilating type, as just a mask is pretty usuless.
They are face shields, this sort of style. It's used alongside usual face masks, I think.40194382-oaoHA.jpg

That's a sensible idea, thank you.
