Band-Aids, Wound Care & Bandages

Meltblown nonwovens are highly functional solutions for wound care & bandages . The properties of our material provide the perfect conditions for the medical sector.

The elasticity and stretchability of the material helps to flexibly adapt to the respective part of the body without tearing. Our media is very soft, provides a suitable haptic and skin-friendly bonding and are eudermic.
With its water vapor permeability and breathability, it has properties that are absolutely necessary in this medical field for a comfortable wear and a fast healing process.
To meet your expectations for medical applications, our nonwoven is available in different grammages.

Our latest development offers a very special advantage for bandages. A special meltblown nonwoven material whose initial state can be transformed into a different shape by heat, enabling the patient to apply this bandage to the body himself without much effort, just by applying heat. You can see an example of this in our video.
