Banding together to aid you in finding solutions
As anyone who's ever ripped off a bandage knows, changing dressings can be as painful as the wound itself. The right amount of stick is needed to protect wounds and seal ostomys with out damaging the tender skin around them. Ashland applies chemistry to create the optimum balance between stick and release. Ashland has you, and your wound care needs, covered.
Many factors must be taken into account in the development and production of wound and ostomy care products. Adhesion and Absorbency stand at the top of the list. Products must provide enough adhesion to remain securely in place, even in the presence of moisture, while also allowing damage- and pain-free removal. Maintaining an environment that's condusive to healing is essential and means effectively managing moisture, fluids, and air. Too much moisture may lead to infection, too little and the healing process can be slowed. Leaks and odors can result in embarrassment and distress for patients, which may in turn, slow the healing process of negatively affect their quality of life. Ashland considers all of this when developing solutions. Partnering with Ashland provides you with access to our products as well as our technologies and teams of solvers who will work with you to develop solutions that yield better outcomes for both you and your customers.
