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.
