Specialty Elastic Compression Bandage

Specialty Elastic Compression Bandage

The Challenge

Fulflex was approached by a medical company developing a unique innovative compression bandage to provide a high stretch product with very good recovery (low permanent set).  The product had to be compatible with textile covering operation and give controlled constant pressure and sustained compression.

For this specific application, the chosen elastic had to provide a constant elastic modulus over an extended range of elongation.

The Action

Fulflex R&D group researched our available compounds and found a close match to our Comfi-Fit family of products used in hygiene and medical markets

The Solution

Fulflex provided a low modulus high stretch synthetic Polyisoprene product with a flat stress-strain curve in an easy to convert multi-strand elastic format
