Optimum protection meets ease of use: At this year’s Medica show in Duesseldorf, Germany, RKW presented its latest range of high-performance films and laminates for surgical and woundcare applications in hall 6, booth D16. The products from the Medicace® and Medifol® brands are offering proven barrier properties and comfort levels.
Reliable infection barriers are key to protecting both medical personnel and patients in their care. The demand for more effective solutions continues to increase and in answer, RKW showcased its portfolio of Medicace® high-performance films and laminates. The multilayer offerings present full barrier properties for end applications such as single-use surgical drapes and gowns, as well as back-table and mayo-stand covers. Furthermore, RKW’s breathable fabric, Gownace, is presented as an option that improves comfort levels for the wearer thanks to its innovative nature. “The Medicace® range underlies RKW’s position as the leading European provider of single-use laminates for medical applications,” says Sophie Litt, Sales Manager Medical at RKW. “We use state-of-the-art technology so that our films and laminates provide highest quality standards and consistency to manufacturers of surgical drapes and gowns. Moreover, they contribute significantly to the safety of the end user.” Medifol® is the brand of a wide variety of embossed films and laminates from RKW that meet the stringent quality requirements in woundcare applications. A reliable single-use wound dressing is critical for healing. At the show, RKW exhibits a portfolio of products that meet the challenges of presenting both liquid barrier properties as well as comfort, flexibility and breathability.
