Covestro’s booth at the Compamed/Medica 2016 trade fairs showcased its medical materials and technical expertise, as well as end-use applications.

Coming from near and far, exhibitors and attendees from around the world converged on Dusseldorf, Germany, November 14-17, for the Compamed trade fair. For the 25th year, this show for suppliers and manufacturers of medical technology was held in conjunction with the Medica trade fair. Covestro was among the exhibitors and showcased its over 40 years’ experience in the medical industry and its understanding of industry needs.

At Compamed/Medica, Covestro demonstrated its competence in this industry with cardio-vascular, IV-access and dialysis exhibits featuring material and technological developments and end-use applications. Covestro also featured other offerings in its balanced polycarbonate and technical solutions portfolios for medical devices. At the show, Covestro highlighted its material developments for applications in medical textile coatings, for example in surgical clothing, mattress pads for hospitals, coatings for medical furniture and medical bandages. The company presented its raw materials for sustainable waterborne textile coatings that have good tactile properties and improved resistance to disinfectants. These materials are also suitable for latex-free elastic self-adhesive bandages and secondary fixing.

Covestro also showcased thermoplastic polyurethane films and high-performance polycarbonate that fulfill the demands of both medical technology manufacturers and patients.

This was yet again a successful show for Covestro, providing a good opportunity to showcase its expertise, meet customers and discuss future projects and material challenges.
