Argotec Introduces Polyurethane Film-on-Paper with Controlled Release


Argotec Inc. has introduced a new thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) film-on-paper product that will allow medical adhesive coaters, converters and distributors an alternative film source for frame-type wound dressings and surgical drapes.

According to the company, wound dressings made with ArgoMedPLUS 18411 film-on-paper provide patient comfort, are highly conformable, exhibit stretch recovery and have high moisture-vapour-transmission rates. Made with USP Class IV or Class VI certified components, this film-on-paper composite meets biocompatibility standards. It also provides a viral and blood-borne pathogen barrier. ArgoMedPLUS’s TPU contains no processing aids or modifiers; therefore, the surface tension of the film makes it compatible with the most commonly used medical-grade adhesive systems. It also withstands commercial EtO and gamma sterilisation processes.

ArgoMedPLUS 18411 can be extruded in film thicknesses ranging from 0.8 to 1.2 mil (20 to 30 μm), in widths up to 60 in. (1.52 m) and lengths up to 550 nonspliced yards (532 m), depending on film thickness.
