MUNICH, Germany—Wacker Chemie A.G. will showcase a next-generation of medical silicones, specifically in the self-adhesive liquid silicone space, at Compamed 2022.
The conference is set for Nov. 14-17 in Duesseldorf, Germany.
The LSR is made to work in hard and soft combinations with polycarbonate and silicone adhesives for wound dressings and fixing aids.
Typically applied as a gel, the silicone adhesives reduce the pain of dressing changes and can be used to affix sensors and medical aids to the body, according to Wacker.
Wacker will present a related case study on the gels at the Duesseldorf conference.
