Covestro LLC formerly Bayer MaterialScience, is presenting its new Baymedix FP505 prepolymer, which creates non-yellowing aliphatic foams with excellent fluid absorption and retention properties.
Modern wound dressings can be produced efficiently and sustainably from just three materials if combined appropriately. Manufacture by direct coating of adhesive-on-film or foam-on-film eliminates laminating steps and optimizes drying times, further enhancing process efficiency. This process efficiency and avoidance of solvents in manufacturing also results in more sustainable products and waste reduction.
The differences are particularly pronounced when it comes to moisture management. Wound dressings made from Covestro materials are breathable, exhibit a high absorption capacity and outstanding retention. In addition, the adjustable adhesive strengths of adhesives based on Baymedix technology make “low trauma removal” – an important issue in wound care – readily achievable.
