Polyurethane foams from Coveris Advanced Coatings are part of the company’s inspire® medical portfolio.
The polyurethane foam product portfolio contains a range of polyurethane materials from 250µ to 400µ, which are thick and ideally suited as a backing or support layer for professional healthcare wound dressings and plasters for the consumer market.
The inspire product range conforms to regulations for use in wound dressing applications.
Polyurethane foam has benefitted from years of development and offers unparalleled breathability, conformability, elasticity, softness and protection.
The products are available in various colours, including white, that are stable after sterilisation and exposure to UV. Foams are available on a support liner and can be provided with a skin-friendly, breathable pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA).
Foams can also be provided with a polyurethane film on the surface. This surface provides a bacterial barrier with a very low co-efficient of friction. It also prevents leakage from the dressing and provides a surface that can be wiped clean.
Coveris casts polyurethane films and foams on-site and offers an in-house printing service to enhance the marketing potential of its materials.
This service utilises US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved inks and allows customers to provide branding directly on the dressing or plaster.
In addition to the standard range of products, Coveris has the capability to provide custom designs for the market, including anti-bacterial films and adhesives.
