Backings for Conventional Wound Care

Optimal protection, backings with high mechanical resistance and comfort on the skin, the conventional wound care range developed by Adhex offers high performance and complies with biocompatibility standards.

Innovations recently performed by Adhex allowed the development of a wide variety of high-performance dressings. A real second skin, the adhesive materials are completely forgotten by the end user and adapt to the requirements of their daily life: comfort, breathability, painless removal, high resistance, impermeability, aesthetics (invisibility), elasticity…

This comfort combined with the performance of the dressing is gained by selecting appropriate materials as carriers and adhesives. Indeed, our wide range of backings available allows to obtain heterogeneous performances according to the desired needs: high breathability, elasticity, second skin feeling and visual invisibility while preserving its primary function of wound protection.

Polyurethane films with thin thicknesses (from 20 to 50µm) and complexes (laminates based on TPU Meltblown) is a unique process that makes it possible to obtain a high-performance dressing with improved breathability and elasticity. Then, working on different chemistries (solvent, cross-linked hot-melt, water based) which guarantee less traumatic removal, Adhex has also taken into account the physical and mechanical parameters of the adhesive materials: thickness, respect of the width for dressing converting; quality of the films between the adhesive and the release liner…. Chemistries coating, backing microperforation or embossing, lamination of different materials, so many technical processes which enables Adhex to get a unique and adapted bandage. Our materials have undergone numerous biotoxicity tests. Developments are carried out in compliance with the MDR (Medical Device Regulation) and respect the ISO 10-993 standard.
