  • Advanced Wound Care

    Advanced Wound Care solutions: foams and nonwovens

    Modern wound dressings are used to treat complex, hard-to-heal wounds such as pressure sores and diabetic foot or leg, for example.

    Freudenberg Performance Materials manufactures innovative product solutions for these applications. These include nonwovens made from hydrogelling fibers, hydrophilic polyurethane foams and nonwoven/foam laminates with excellent absorption and retention characteristics.

    The systems absorb wound exudate and create an ideal environment for the healing of chronic wounds. They thus contribute to the quality of life of patients and support the healing process. Both treatment time and costs can be significantly reduced.

    Through our latest innovations, such as antimicrobial foam systems or nonwovens made from chitosan fibers used in hemostatic wound dressings, we make a significant contribution to treatment success.

    Transdermal solutions

    Transdermal medication is on the rise worldwide – and for good reason.

In addition, pharmaceutically active ingredients can be accurately and safely dosed in a simple manner. Precisely for these applications, Freudenberg Performance Materials offers very soft, flexible and conformable backing materials and release liners that protect the adhesive surface.

  • Cosmetic Wipes

    Wipes: a clean solution based on Evolon

    Cosmetic wipes based on Evolon® technology are perfect for daily skin care. The material with microfilaments is produced using hydroentanglement, which means that no binder is needed. As a result, the fabric is particularly pleasant on the skin. Impurities and make-up can be gently captured and thoroughly removed at the same time. Thanks to its surface structure, Evolon® works like a gentle exfoliation and also has the advantage of not leaving any fuzz on the skin.

    Because the high-tech material can be used both dry and wet, it is suitable for use in different types of cosmetic wipes
