superfibre: gelling fibre composites
Our patented Superfibre technology allows us to produce composite wound dressings based on gelling fibres and absorbent gels.
Rather than simply laminating these materials together, Superfibre composites are the result of actually polymerising the gel in the presence of the gelling fibre. This results in a 3-layer material which has significantly greater wet strength and absorption than typical gelling fibre dressings. We can create patterns in this composite material by varying the thickness across the gel layer. This enhances product aesthetics, and our ability to manage exudate flow within the finished product.
