Published on 2019-06-25. Edited By : SpecialChem

MDM-skin-friendly-adhesive At Medical Design & Manufacturing (MD&M) East, Covestro highlighted its polyurethane raw materials for the healthcare industry. Covestro showcased its Baymedix® portfolio for skin-friendly adhesives, absorbent foams and waterborne coatings and Dureflex® and Platilon® product portfolios for medical films.

High-quality Material for Different Applications

High-quality materials from Covestro have been used by healthcare devices and equipment manufacturers for decades. As manufacturers strive to break new ground, they continue to rely on the company’s thermoplastic polyurethane films and polyurethane-based adhesives and foams.

Baymedix® textile coatings for a variety of applications including skin-friendly adhesives, absorbent foams and waterborne coatings for stretchable and resistant backings as well as seamless films for dipping applications. Baymedix® materials offer excellent mechanical properties, breathability, good haptics and adjustable adhesive strength.

Dureflex® and Platilon® TPU film grades designed for medical wearables and applications in touch with skin, such as blood pressure cuffs and wound dressings. These materials provide high flexibility, mechanical robustness, breathability and durability.

Baymedix® and Platilon® materials that can be combined efficiently to create advanced wound care dressings and healthcare wearables from just three components by direct coating an adhesive or foam onto film.

Covestro’s Healthcare Portfolio at MD&M

Wound dressings made from Covestro materials are breathable, exhibit a high absorption capacity and outstanding retention. New multilayer Platilon® TPU film grades allow for a wide range of design options in advanced wound care including surface texture, color, breathability, adhesive anchorage, printability, and high productivity during the coating process. Covestro will showcase at the booth a conceptual dressing design for pressure ulcer prevention featuring Baymedix® and Platilon® materials to address pressure-, friction- and shear-reduction combined with moisture management.

Covestro will highlight new grades of Platilon® thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) films. These grades of Platilon® TPU film are suitable for use as an “e-textile” with embedded electronics for medical wearables. Visitors to the booth will see prototypes of embedded circuits in Baymedix® and Platilon® materials as well as a real-world application featuring Platilon® TPU film utilized in a heart rate sensor.
