Foams: materials, technologies & applications

Innovative technical textiles for medical products

Hydrophilic Polyurethane foams offer superior absorbency and comfort making them a perfect choice for e. g. wound dressing. Thanks to their excellent absorption and retention characteristics these foams can absorb 20 times their own weight in fluid- features that enable them to set high standards in the medical field. Our „pour to thickness“ manufacturing process allows us to produce in a wide range of thicknesses, from 1.5 mm to 7.0 mm. The thin foams can be combined with nonwovens to form multi-layer constructions, e. g. for medical applications, such as low profile wound dressings.

Technical materials for advanced applications

In our innovative pilot line antimicrobial or other additives can be integrated in a real production environment. Freudenberg Performance Materials produces the Polyurethane foams in Ebbw Vale (UK), where we operate a state of the art manufacturing and research facility.
