Abstract: MPT is one of the most important parts of both textiles and medical products. It includes medical protective cloths, masks, gloves, operating towels, etc. Its performances and quality are critical to the safety, health and even life of medical staff and patients. In this paper, according to worldwide regulations and standards, the performance of MPT products were divided into six parts - protective performances, safety, comfort, mechanical strength, durability and cost & price. Detailed requirements of each part were further discussed. Moreover, the evaluation standards and methods on MPT products developed quickly in past years in China, USA and Europe. As samples, kinds of common standards were summarized and compared in this study. However, different countries may have different standards and regulations, even for same product or same performance. They did not reach the unification in worldwide. Thus, worldwide strict and unified evaluation standards on MPT products should be established and implemented as soon as possible.
