Continuous medical achievements have the potential to increase the lifespan and the quality of living for billions of people around the globe. For that purpose the materials on which the treatments are based must be both reliable and versatile. Above all, they have to be absolutely safe in direct contact with the patients. A variety of mechanical assets, such as robustness and flexibility, are also required. Finally, the materials must ensure profitability and efficiency in the day-to-day clinic business.
Polycarbonate moldings, foams based on polyurethane, high-quality films and special foils are some of Covestros contributions that stimulate and safeguard medical progress throughout the healthcare sector – in the areas of laboratory, diagnostics, wound care and surgery, as well as in nursing, rehabilitation and self-treatment.
