​Silbione® HC2 products for Advanced Wound Care

Manufacturers of Advanced Wound Care products are constantly searching for efficient and creative solutions to treat wounds that satisfy the needs of all parties involved in the healing process:

  • Quick and painless treatment for patients
  • Efficient and safe dressings to facilitate the work of hospital staff
  • Cost-efficient performance for payers.

Silicone products have long been used in the medical industry because they are biocompatible and provide an ideal environment for healing. Wound dressings using Soft Skin Adhesives lessen pain when removed or repositioned and also avoid exacerbating existing wounds and ulcers.

Elkem Silicones contributes to ensuring that the most demanding specifications are met for Advanced Wound Care. Our Silbione® solutions are designed to adhere selectively to healthy peripheral skin and not to open wounds. This is achieved with dressings using our Silbione® Soft Skin Adhesives  to make sure that wound contact and change is atraumatic and painless.

Our range of Silbione® HC2 soft skin adhesives comply with the strictest standards for wound care and medical devices and are manufactured in a clean and controlled environment. Bioburden is measured on each silicone batch to ensure successful sterilization of the final device.

Additionally, our silicone formulations enable efficient coating and conversion in all major manufacturing processes used in the medical adhesive industry, generating cost savings and reducing complications.

All of these factors make Silbione® HC2 products particularly suitable for a wide range of applications comprising:

  • Absorbent foam wound dressings
  • Ulcer island dressings
  • Post-operative dressings
  • Wound contact layers for negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT)

Our Silbione® HC2 range is designed and manufactured to meet the most demanding standards of Advanced Wound Care companies:

  • Manufacturing in an ISO 13485 certified facility
  • Production and packaging in an ISO 8 clean room
  • Guaranteed microbial safety (bioburden specified and tested for each batch)
  • Biocompatibility according to the ISO10993 standard
  • Strict specifications control and enhanced batch-to-batch consistency
