GESSNER's meltblown nonwovens are increasingly used as the foundation for end-use applications in the medical field, such as wound care plasters and bandaging, due to their many advantageous properties. In addition to being highly absorbent, strong, comfortable, and sterile, they provide a lightweight but effective barrier to contamination and further injury and provide a foundation for a long-lasting wound care.
Meltblown nonwovens are made from fine fibers that have the ability to trap fluids, debris, germs, viruses, and other contaminants that may be present at a wound site. The nonwoven fabric with its selected polymers is designed to maintain its integrity while still allowing the patient freedom of movement. This ensures maximum protection in addition to a high level of comfort without interfering with the proper medical treatment of the affected area.
To create an excellent environment for the healing process, TPU Meltblown nonwovens provide an ideal solution for the foundation of a tape that can be used to maintain cleanliness and protect against external factors that can interfere with the healing process. By combining our nonwoven with our customers' technology, a product can be created that promotes a quick recovery and minimal risk of infection or further injury.
The elasticity and stretchability of the material helps to flexibly adapt to the particular part of the body without tearing. Our media is very soft and provides a suitable haptic. With its water vapor permeability and breathability, it has properties that are essential in this medical field. To meet your expectations, our nonwoven fabric is available in different grammages.
Films with shape memory effects exist for quite some time and are also widely used. We have transferred this concept to nonwovens, with all their advantages such as breathability and textile-like feel. GESSNER is convinced that this will bring enormous benefits to many industries.
A special meltblown nonwoven material whose initial state can be transformed into a different shape by heat. The combination of shape memory effect and fibrous structure allows the nonwoven to be used in countless applications. In addition to the properties of the nonwoven itself, it can be combined with a wide variety of other materials.
Support bandages are an example for an application of the new nonwoven field which we would like to introduce to you. We are happy to discuss your specific idea and adapt the material to your individual needs
