DermaMed and EuroMed Team to Offer New Low-Trauma Adhesive Hydrocolloid Technology

Medical device companies DermaMed Coatings Company, LLC and EuroMed, Inc. joined together to develop and introduce a proprietary, cost efficient, hydrocolloid fixation technology. Co-branded under the name HydroSoft, this low-trauma adhesive is ideal for fragile skin. It uses a non-silicone based adhesive and can be easily repositioned as needed without damaging the skin.

The HydroSoft patent-pending technology and process can be sourced in roll form or customized as PSAs. As a low-trauma adhesive, HydroSoft is ideal for wound dressings, neonatal and geriatric care, surgical dressings, biosensors, catheters, diagnostics, and electrodes.

Hydrocolloid technology supports faster wound healing, maintains skin moisture, allows for longer wear times, tolerates sweat, adds comfort, and is gentler on the skin.

HydroSoft uses latex-free, non-silicone materials to deliver a hydrocolloid that performs like silicone gels, and it can be gamma sterilized.

Working together, EuroMed with its patented, advanced adhesive technologies and DermaMed with its sophisticated coating capabilities, they are able to bring to market this specialized hydrocolloid for medical applications.

DermaMed will be featuring HydroSoft at the upcoming Medical Device & Manufacturing East (MD&M East) Show in New York at the Javits Center from June 10-12, 2014, Booth 1349.
