In developing skin-contact adhesives, it's crucial to balance skin sensitivity with the varied and stringent compliance requirements for successful application. We offer customizable adhesive formulations to meet diverse and challenging needs.

Wound and skin care solutions

Our portfolio includes silicone foam and super-absorbent dressings. Our SilFoam dressing, gentle on the skin, features a triple-layer design: a soft silicone adhesive layer, a highly absorbent hydrophilic polyurethane foam, and a protective transparent polyurethane film. The superabsorbent dressing excels in absorbing high volumes of exudate, maintaining a moist wound environment, and performing effectively under compression.

Additionally, our silicone wound contact layer, designed for minimal irritation, is a porous, low-adherent nonwoven coated with soft silicone adhesive. This layer protects growing granulation tissue from disturbance during frequent changes of the outer absorbent dressing and is compatible with Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT).

Amorphous Hydrogel is a sterile, clear and translucent primary dressing that helps manage dry, necrotic and sloughy wounds.

The gel provides a moist environment at the wound surface and assists in the debridement and removal of necrotic and other devitalized material.
