As a technology leader and one of the largest providers of engineered polymers, Lubrizol is your custom solution development partner. At Lubrizol LifeScience Polymers, we apply our technical expertise and portfolio of specialty thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) products to develop innovative treatments for burns, lacerations, infection, ulcers and general tissue damage. Our polymers, including the Pellethane®
TPU product lines, are frequently tailored for use in applications such as films, tapes, backings, and synthetic dressings.
Our products for advanced wound care applications exhibit biocompatibility, absorbency, high strength, processing versatility and a unique balance of barrier and moisture vapor transmission rate (MVTR) properties. Lubrizol’s medical polymer products– are precisely tuned to ensure the necessary amount of protection for healing tissues while also maintaining breathability and patient comfort.
We also provide Carbopol® carbomers
and Tecophilic™ polymers
which can absorb high levels of wound exudate and aid in blood clotting in acute, severe wounds. Carbopol polymers may also provide a buffering effect on the wound, which can assist in pH optimization at the wound site.
