  • Dureflex® and Platilon® thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) films – These versatile materials are used in medical wearables, such as patches to house diagnostic-related devices and wound dressings. They are durable, flexible and abrasion resistant. OEMs can work with Covestro to customize the materials’ properties.
  • Special Dureflex® and Platilon® TPU films – Designed for high value, functional wound dressings, these materials offer a number of advantages including watertight, water vapor permeable properties and a dirt and microbe barrier. Also, these films do not irritate skin and contain no softeners or solvents. These unique characteristics enable the design of new tailor-made wound dressings that support wound healing.
