Innovative Material Solutions for Wound Care and Medical Technology

September 10 2012

At Compamed 2012, Bayer MaterialScience will be showcasing a series of current developments at Stand H30 in Hall 08b. Focal areas will be wound treatment and the manufacture of medical devices. The range of materials includes polyurethane raw materials, thermoplastics and films.

At Compamed 2012, Bayer MaterialScience will be showcasing new aliphatic polyurethane foam based on Baymedix FP reactive foam technology. The raw material enables the production of very smooth and conformable foams that are non-yellowing, thus maintaining their white color over time. Their high absorption rate, together with the greatest fluid retention capability, fits the moisture management requirements of advanced wound dressings very well.

The foams can be coated with a skin-friendly, two-component adhesive made from Baymedix A raw materials that is solvent-free and likewise based on aliphatic polyurethane chemistry. The adhesives can be used for a variety of applications in modern wound care. Appropriately adjusted, these formulations can be removed as gently from the skin as silicone adhesives currently on the market today. Baymedix A materials have been used by leading wound dressing brands for more than 15 years.

Epurex Films, a subsidiary of Bayer MaterialScience, offers films made from thermoplastic polyurethane under the Platilon trade name. They are tailor-made for use as soft, thin-film protective coverings and are characterized by controlled water vapor transmission, high flexibility and a matte surface. This ensures a high wearing comfort and an unobtrusive wound coverage. With these products, Bayer MaterialScience is a one-stop shop for the complete range of polyurethane materials for modern wound treatment, from the protective coating to the foam to the adjustable adhesive.
