Bluestar Silicones Presents Adhesive Gels for Wound Care at Medical Grade Polymers Conference
Date:8/13/2008

EAST BRUNSWICK, N.J., Aug. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- At the upcoming Medical Grade Polymers Conference, Dr. Remi Thiria, Bluestar Silicones R&D Team Leader, will present "Silicone Elastomer Gels: New Soft Adhesives for Wound Care." The conference will take place in Philadelphia, September 16-17.

According to Dr. Thiria, silicones offer a wide variety of molecular structures that provide differentiated performance features for wound care, scar management and transdermal drug delivery.

"Adhesive silicone gels are ideal for wound care and transdermal applications for their physical properties and inherent biocompatibility," says Dr. Thiria. "The hydrophobic nature of these products enables gentle adhesion to dry skin without adhesion to moist skin, preventing secondary trauma to newly formed skin in a healing wound."

In his presentation, Dr. Thiria will explore new developments relating how linear viscoelastic response correlated to probe tack results can better control the performance requirements for wound care and transdermal applications.

Bluestar Silicones will host a tabletop display at the Medical Grade Polymers Conference highlighting its Silbione(R) brand adhesive silicone gels designed specifically for the wound care and transdermal applications. For more information, call 1-866-474-6342.
