Product category: Adhesives

Baymedix® / Platilon for Wound care

Covestro offers holistic material solutions for all layers of modern wound dressings. Polyurethane adhesive components from the Baymedix® A range are characterized by excellent breathability - an important prerequisite for moisture management in advanced wound dressings. The adhesive system can also be easily removed from the skin without sticking to the hair (low trauma). Covestro Baymedix® FP also provides polyurethane raw materials for foams with excellent absorption and retention properties. By directly coating the carrier film with the adhesive system or foam, process and laminating steps can also be saved in production which increases efficiency. Special thermoplastic polyurethane films (TPU) from the Platilon® range with a particularly mat surface round off the range.

Baymedix® / Platilon® for Wound prevention

Covestro has developed a design study for wound prevention that deals with the three most important factors for bedsore (decubitus): Pressure, friction and shear.

The main features of the prototype wound prevention dressing made of Baymedix® and Platilon® materials are:

• Optimized friction, shear and pressure management
• Excellent moisture management to support a healthy microclimate
• Application and skin friendly polyurethane adhesive
• Efficient and sustainable manufacturing technology

Components based on these products help increase both cost and manufacturing efficiency by allowing roll to roll processing and inline production of all layers. During processing, thermoplastic welding of the edges is possible. Moreover, the process is energy saving and environmentally compatible because production steps are reduced.

Baymedix® CD- Seamless Films for medical gloves

Aqueous polyurethane dispersions of the Baymedix® CD range were specially developed for use in latex-free, highly elastic films. Their outstanding mechanical stability makes them an excellent starting material for seamless medical gloves. Such films can be produced both in the dipping process and in the efficient roll-to-roll process.

Product category: Wearables

Baymedix®

Covestro also supports customers in the manufacturing with a process that allows wearables to be efficiently produced from roll to roll. The electronic module is fixed to the carrier film in one step and embedded in a thermoformable polyurethane foam that is fed onto a second film. The patch is then fixed with a special, skin-friendly adhesive. The adhesive system and thermoformable foam are based on Baymedix® polyurethane raw materials. With this Covestro offers a complete solution for modern and high-quality wearable patch devices.

Product category: Wearables

Platilon®

Wearable electronic patch devices are already being used in a variety of medical applications, including monitoring, diagnostics and drug delivery. They help patients gain greater mobility. The wearables must be worn on the skin around the clock for a prolonged period of time so they need to be particularly kind to the skin, comfortable, but also adhere firmly to the skin. Among other things, Covestro has developed special breathable TPU films from the Platilon® range for this purpose.

Product category: Wearables

Makrolon® 2458

Thermoplastic elastomers (TPEs) and polycarbonates offer a unique combination of rigid and soft materials for housings and interfaces in wearables. To create durable devices that withstand repeated use, these materials must demonstrate strong adhesion and offer chemical resistance.

Makroblend® M525

Apollo Neuroscience, Inc. saw a gap in the wearables market and created the first-ever device that, according to the company, actively helps the body adapt to stress for increased energy and enhanced sleep and relaxation. Users can stay calm knowing that Makroblend® M525 PC+polyester blend keeps the device clean and strong.
