Freudenberg Performance Materials will be presenting a number of innovative solutions at the European Wound Management Association Conference (EWMA) from June 5-7, 2019 in Gothenburg, Sweden. These will include foams with an innovative direct coating of silicone adhesives, multilayer foam-fleece components with superabsorbent nonwovens, and more efficient PU foams.

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.
