Polyurethane films for hydrophilic foam and hydrocolloid wound dressings
Polyurethane films are ideal for use in hydrophilic foam and hydrocolloid wound dressings. The polyurethane films provide a bacterial barrier and have excellent breathability, low co-efficient of friction, together with good transparency and an exceptional matt surface. Included are coloured medical films and thicker, self-supporting polyurethane films, as well as polyurethane foams that do not require a support liner.
Our clear filmic casting liners are recommended for situations where there is a need to view the wound as the dressing is applied. A printing service is available to produce branded wound dressings.
Adhesive coated polyurethane films
We offer a wide range of adhesive coated polyurethane films, including:
- High tack adhesives for blister dressings, bordered dressings, etc
- Breathable adhesive that provides extended wear time for chronic wound dressings, etc
- Gentle adhesives for sensitive skin
- Gamma-sterilisable breathable adhesive
- Silver-containing adhesive that further enhances the bacterial barrier properties of the films
Polyurethane foams for wound dressings
Coveris Advanced Coatings has a range of polyurethane foams in a variety of thicknesses and colours. These can be supplied in combination with skin-friendly adhesives and polyurethane films; they can be printed to create branded wound dressings offering excellent breathability, protection and bacterial barrier.
Used to create dressings for applications without the need for support films / papers, polyurethane foams provide a low coefficient of friction and an exceptionally soft feel.
Carbon containing conductive films for electrodes
Carbon containing films that can be coated with silver or silver / silver chloride are available for medical electrode applications, including biosensors and cosmetic applications. The films’ precise coating, uniform surface conductivity, and ‘through’ conductivity, make them ideal for use in a variety of compact and lightweight medical diagnostics and treatment devices. Applications include electrodes, defibrillation, muscle stimulation, transdermal drug delivery and other diagnostic devices where through conductivity is required.
