Baymedix polyurethane raw materials are breathable and enable optimal moisture management in wound dressings in addition to offering design options.
Baymedix polyurethane raw materials are breathable and enable optimal moisture management in wound dressings in addition to offering design options.

Covestro will highlight its Baymedix polyurethane (PU) raw materials for wound care at Compamed 2017, taking place from November 13-16 in Düsseldorf, Germany.

These breathable materials are used, for example, in absorbent foams manufactured from Baymedix FP, adhesives with skin contact made of Baymedix A and films based on the waterborne products Baymedix FD and CD.

Directly coating the film with adhesive or foam decreases the number of laminating steps, and optimized drying times ensure efficiency in production. The processes are also sustainable because waste is reduced and solvents are not used.

Covestro will also present its Makrolon polycarbonate (PC), which, with exceptional transparency and impact resistance, is a safe and durable material for housing components.

Several variants of this material have also passed biocompatibility tests, as required for such applications, and thus meet the criteria of ISO 10993-1. Together with the polycarbonate Apec, which is stable at high temperatures, Makrolon medical technology products are suitable for various forms of sterilization.

Digitalization is now common in many areas of medical technology. One important trend is the use of wearables – small electronic devices that are affixed to the skin like a patch, providing support for consumers participating in sports and leisure activities or treating medical conditions.

In view of their enormous market potential, Compamed is presenting these devices separately in another booth, where Covestro will showcase how material solutions increase the comfort of electronic patches and provide additional areas of application.

In addition to standard functions, such as measuring heart rate, in the future they will also help with medical diagnoses and treatments and deliver medications in accurate dosages. This would require them to remain on the skin for extended periods and be comfortable to wear.

Platilon thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) blown film is sought after in medical applications, due to its comfort, e.g. breathability, stretch, soft haptics, hypoallergenics, design (e.g. printable, colors) and customization to fit the converter's production process, e.g. thickness range, tailored carriers and release force. Additional functionality includes low melting (95-105°C) or water vapor barrier.
