Foams

 

Our bulk hydrophilic polyurethane foam rollstock is manufactured in Etten-Leur in the Netherlands.  Our foam is characterised by a fine cell structure, that results in a soft, conformable and highly absorbent foam. We have the capability to tailor the foam rollstock to a range of properties, additives and widths, and to provide bulk laminated foam rollstock.

Foam rollstock

Our medical grade foam is ISO 10993 compliant and characterised by its ultra soft, open-pored, medium density structure.  It is very conformable and of high strength when wet or dry.  It is specially designed to offer a high rate of absorbency with good lateral control and rapid fluid uptake and is ideally suited for conversion to a variety of wound or skin care products.

Antimicrobial Polyhexamethylene Biguanide (PHMB) foam rollstock

We are able to combine our medical grade foam with PHMB to provide an antimicrobial foam rollstock.

PHMB is a synthetic compound structurally similar to naturally occurring antimicrobial peptides (AMPs).  These have a broad spectrum of activity against bacteria, viruses and fungi and can be used to reduce the wound bioburden.

The inclusion of PHMB in our bulk polyurethane foam rollstock allows our customers to convert it into high quality antimicrobial dressings to be used in the treatment of moderate to heavily exuding wounds with signs of infection.
