Freudenberg: wound dressings with silicone adhesives
The components for wound dressings consist of polyurethane foam with a directly applied layer of silicone, which prevents the dressing from sticking to the wound. They continuously adapt to ensure optimal contact with the wound bed, reduce the complexity of the production process for the customer and have less impact on the environment. The adhesive properties of the silicone facilitate the application of the foam and, at the same time, do not stick to the wound when changing dressings. The Freudenberg solution works without additional layers of film or other liners with acrylic adhesive, which is required as a silicone carrier in conventional products.
