​​Discover our latest innovative Silbione® solution for increased wear times 

The 28th conference of the European Wound Management Association will be held from May 9-11, 2018 in Kraków, Poland. As silicones have become a critical component in many modern wound dressings, the Elkem Silicones team is proud to exhibit at booth #D513 our offering for the wound care industry.

Our experts will be happy to demonstrate the performances of Silbione® RT Gel 4743, our latest product in the Silbione® Skin Adhesive range. Designed to combine the low trauma properties of silicone with an enhanced wear time, Silbione® RT Gel 4743 is particularly suitable for post-operatory dressings and medical tapes.

This rounds up our range of Silbione® Soft Skin Adhesives​, solvent-less adhesives combining the proven biocompatiblity of silicones with a soft adhesion to skin for an atraumatic removal of the dressing. They are widely used in sensitive applications like Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT) or advanced wound dressings.

Visit our booth #D513 and learn more about our collaborative project to develop a 'Smart Bandage'. Together with industrial & academic partners from the Lyon region, Elkem Silicones has contributed to the development of this innovative wound dressing capable of detecting and revealing wound infections. An E-poster with the results will be presented in the E-poster category Dressings.

The Elkem Silicones team is looking forward to welcoming you on our booth #D513 of the EWMA conference, from May 9th to 11th in Kraków. ​
