The Anaheim, Calif.-based company said it is offering fixation material comprised of breathable film and adhesive, made with polyurethane raw materials to allow for moisture management and comfort, as well as electronics embedding technology.
“We are committed to serving this innovative industry providing our customers with tailor-made polyurethane material solutions created through our joint developments. Solutions based on one technology will drastically increase design options and processing efficiency while reducing the complexity of value chain cooperation with a single source,” Covestro medical applicaitons head Chris Koppenborg said in a press release.
Covestro said it is offering its Platilon films and Baymedix skin-contact adhesive, which are non-allergenic and breathable, which the company said will allow the patches to protect connected electronics in wet environments.
The company said it is able to embed electronics through a roll-to-roll or roll-to-sheet process to allow for specific medical applications.
