Sustainable textile coatings from Covestro

News 27.03.2017
At the INDEX™17, the company will present textile coating applications in the medical environment: surgical wear, hospital bed linen, coatings for medical furniture, but also medical bandages.

In recent years, Covestro has developed new polyurethane raw materials for state-of-the-art wound care under the trade name of Baymedix®. These include raw materials for wound dressings that assist in the healing process and also offer numerous design options. These raw materials are used, for example, in absorbent foams manufactured from Baymedix® FP, adhesives with skin contact made of Baymedix® A and films based on the waterborne products Baymedix® FD and CD.

Recently, textile coating applications in the medical environment have become a new focus of Covestro's material development. Such applications include surgical wear, hospital bed linen, coatings for medical furniture, but also medical bandages. At the INDEX™17 trade fair for nonwovens Covestro will be presenting new raw materials for sustainable, water-borne textile coatings with good haptics and enhanced stability towards disinfectants as well as for non-latex cohesive bandages for compression therapy and secondary fixation.
