Why Choose PU over PVC?
Preventing Avoidable Pressure Ulcers / Pressure Injuries
Medical support surface fabrics with immersion, envelopment and breathability properties are key factors in pressure ulcer / pressure injury prevention.
Utilizing polyurethane-coated fabrics for surgical use ensures skin safety and eliminates the risk of compromise through failure with pinholes.
User Comfort and Safety
Breathable, comfortable fabrics designed with the user experience in mind, yet practical and safe for use by medical professionals.
Fit for Purpose
General properties that can be expected from Trelleborg’s Healthcare & Medical textile range include:
The forerunner of Trelleborg ECF’s Dartex® brand, Penn Nyla, paved the way for polyurethane coated fabrics to be adopted across hospital mattress covers and tickings in the 1990’s.
Staying true to that innovative endeavour, our healthcare & medical team is constantly researching, testing and exploring the latest developments in fabrics and coatings to ensure our customers lead the way in their sectors.
