Nonwovens and foams for advanced wound care
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.
