PU foams for woundcare introduced at Compamed

One of the interesting products introduced at Compamed 2012 held last week in Düsseldorf, Germany was aliphatic polyurethane foam for wound management from Bayer MaterialScience.

Based on Baymedix FP reactive foam technology, the material is said to have a high absorption rate coupled with fluid retention capability. It is also described by a BMS official as a very smooth and conformable foam that is non-yellowing, maintaining its white color over time.

The foams can be coated with a two-component adhesive made from Baymedix, a solvent-free material also based on aliphatic polyurethane chemistry. The new material is designed to replace silicone adhesive.

Filtrona Porous Technologies (Colonial Heights, VA), also showed new polyurethane-based foams for wound care applications.  Specific innovations include molded and thermoformable medical-grade foams.
