Advanced wound care

Our silicone adhesives help reduce the burden of chronic wounds on healthcare systems, with their proven biocompatibility, minimal trauma upon removal, and compatibility with other materials.

Innovative Solutions for Advanced Wound Care: Enhancing Healing Efficiency

Manufacturers of Advanced Wound Care products are constantly searching for efficient and creative dressing solutions to treat wounds that satisfy the needs of all parties involved in the healing process:

  • Quick and painless treatment for patients
  • Efficient and safe dressings to facilitate the work of hospital staff
  • Cost-efficient performance for payers.

Silicone products have long been used in the medical industry because they are biocompatible and provide an ideal environment for healing. Wound dressings using Soft Skin Adhesives lessen pain when removed or repositioned and also avoid exacerbating existing wounds and ulcers.
