P-DERM® Non-adhesive Films

Generally, medical films feature three key characteristics for wounds, burns and other skin contact: barrier dressing, patient comfort and moisture management. Films provide waterproofness as well as a barrier to viruses and bacteria. Biocompatible materials contour to wounds and remain flexible with movement. Non-adhesive films are repositionable, remove painlessly and provide durability for extended wear applications. Finally, films offer excellent exchange of moisture vapor and oxygen so healing skin functions normally. Polymer Science offers a wide range of non-adhesive films for medical applications.

Polyether Polyurethane on Removable Paper Carrier

As a medical dressing, polyether polyurethane film protects skin from viruses, bacteria and controls the amount of moisture between the film and the skin. Polyether polyurethane has high elasticity and recovery. This material gently conforms to skin and is durable. Polymer Science offers three common thicknesses: 0.03mm, 0.05mm and .010mm 80A durometer polyether polyurethane on removable paper carrier. 

Silicone Elastomer on Removable Polyester Carrier

These films are breathable and atraumatic. Silicone Elastomer film is durable against a range of heat, remaining elastic and flexible for wound dressings. Biocompatible silicone film is permeable to gas and water vapor to promote healing. Polymer Science has a wide variety of thicknesses and hardnesses that are available on a number of carriers.
