EWMA 2019 : Discover our latest innovations for Advanced Wound Care
The 29th conference of the European Wound Management Association will take place in Gothenburg, Sweden. As silicones have become a critical component in many modern wound dressings, the Elkem Silicones team is proud to exhibit at booth #B04:12 our offering for the wound care industry.
Visit us and discover our full 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 from the wound. Silbione™ Soft Skin Adhesives cover a wide spectrum of adhesion to skin and wear time, making them ideal for products like Advanced Wound Dressings and Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT).
Our experts will also demonstrate our latest innovations pushing the boundaries of what Silicone Skin Adhesives can do :
Gamma-sterilizable Skin Adhesives, to bring the benefits of silicones to dressings that cannot withstand Ethylene Oxide
Silver-containing antimicrobial masterbatch for Soft Skin Adhesives, bringing the antimicrobial function to the wound contact layer
Water-absorbing silicone gels to manage moisture and increase wear time.
The Elkem Silicones team is looking forward to discuss these topics with you on our booth #B04:12 of the EWMA conference, from June 5th to 7th in Gothenburg !
