Our portfolio of foam wound care dressings includes trilaminate foam, bilaminate foam, silicone foam and silicone wound contact layer products that provide high absorption, low wound adherence and protection. We are also able to provide antimicrobial foams, and supply foam rollstock.
Providing confidence with security and protection
Our trilaminate foam wound care dressings use polyurethane foam to create the microporous hydrophilic foam structure.
The hydrophilic foam has a flexible, breathable, backing film for both adhesive and non-adhesive foam dressings, which allows vapour to pass out through the dressing whilst the foam absorbs high levels of exudate.
The wound contact layer side of the dressing has a clear perforated film which protects the wound bed from adhering to the dressing by preventing the newly formed granulation tissue adhering to the foam.
The perforations in the wound contact film allow the uptake of exudate, preventing excess fluid causing maceration to healthy skin.
Specifically designed to deliver quality and clinical effectiveness
Our bilaminate foam wound care dressings absorb exudate into the microporous foam structure and the breathable polyurethane backing membrane allows the transmission of the exudate as moisture vapour.
Exudate is rapidly absorbed into the hydrophilic foam whilst the microporous surface helps prevent adherence to the wound bed, minimising trauma during dressing changes.
The polyurethane backing membrane provides a high Moisture Vapour Transmission Rate (MVTR). Both the adhesive and non-adhesive foam dressings have a high MVTR allowing excess exudate to evaporate through the dressing which, combined with the high intrinsic absorption capacity of the foam, provides a high total fluid handling capability.
This ability to absorb high levels of exudate provides protection against maceration and leakage.
Our silicone foam dressings minimise pain and trauma at dressing change protecting the peri wound skin and promoting comfort during the wear time. The high MVTR polyurethane backing film allows excess exudate to evaporate through the dressing. This combined with the high intrinsic absorption capacity of the microporous foam, provides a high total fluid handling capability.
moderate to heavily exuding wounds
patients with vulnerable skin
Our silicone wound contact layer is a primary dressing recommended for use when adherence to the wound is a potential problem. Exudate passes through the silicone dressing and onto a chosen secondary dressing. This secondary dressing can then be changed as required whilst the silicone wound contact layer remains in situ.
Nil to heavily exuding wounds, including: skin tears, skin abrasions, lacerations, partial thickness burns, diabetic foot ulcers, venous and arterial leg ulcers, post operative wounds and pressure ulcers.
Bulk Hydrophilic Polyurethane Foam Rollstock
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.
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.
