Wearables have to remain on the skin of patients for extended periods and be comfortable to wear.
Wearables have to remain on the skin of patients for extended periods and be comfortable to wear.

At Compamed 2017, Covestro will show a new line of Platilon films with very matte surfaces for wound care, surgical drapes and wearable health patches.

They are the first blown films with a very high matte level, previously only obtainable with cast films, said the company.

Thanks to their matte surface, the films are pleasant to the touch. In contact with clothing, they feature lower friction than glossy films and are therefore longer-lasting. And in the operating room, the anti-reflection films prevent staff from being blinded by bright light.

Small electronic patches are in broad use in the health care sector. Consumers can use them to determine their level of physical fitness, measure body temperature and pulse rate, or evaluate the quality of their sleep. For these applications, wearables have to remain on the skin of patients for extended periods and be comfortable to wear.

"A clever combination of different materials results in products that cling gently to the skin and are also breathable and hypoallergenic," said Gerd Büschel, a films expert at Covestro. The patch is affixed to the skin by means of a skin-friendly, breathable adhesive, which also is solvent-free. "In addition to the new matte films, we also market customized polyurethane raw materials for the manufacture of the electronic plasters."

Compamed 2017 will take place in Düsseldorf, Germany, from October 13-16.
