Bacterial-challenge and toxicity tested to USP 23, Class VI, Tetratex ePTFE membrane is available in a range of pore sizes from 0.05 to 7 microns and can be laminated to a variety of substrates. Tetratex ePTFE products are suitable for a range of health care applications with film thickness from 5 to 250 micron and are thermally and chemically stable, resulting in superior performance and comfort in almost any environment.

For the Health Care market, Tetratex material is a reliable and cost effective solution for many applications, such as:

Ostomy Applications – Donaldson vents provide the patient with total peace of mind and unrivalled performance. The hydrophobic and oleophobic characteristics of Tetratex ePTFE and the highly adsorbent properties of the product provide an excellent barrier to leakage, whilst allowing ventilation, breathability and controlling embarrassing odours to ensure the patient’s comfort.

Dialysis Applications – Tetratex ePTFE membrane provides an excellent barrier against contamination and encourages a fast response of hemodialysis equipment to venous pressure signals.

Wound Care - The soft, drapeable, ease of removal properties provided by Tetratex ePTFE membrane makes it suitable for a range of Wound Care applications. Tetratex ePTFE membrane is highly breathable while offering a substantial barrier to infection.

Martin Koch, Technical Sales Engineer says “Our complete range of Tetratex ePTFE membranes, films and laminates give the customer the possibility to choose a product optimally adapted for their venting or filtration application.
