TC Transcontinental Advanced Coatings have exhibited at EWMA for several years and once again the show was very successful, providing Transcontinental Advanced Coatings with the opportunity to meet with existing customers as well as new prospects.


There was a lot of interest in polyurethane foams for use as the outer layer in a wound dressing and TC can supply these in a number of thicknesses and colors to meet customers’ design criteria.


The company also promoted a new range of inspire® films with a great balance of price and performance to meet the increasing demands in the market place.  The new products also deliver enhanced conformability to improve patient comfort and wear time.  The products are ideally suited for IV and transparent wound dressings as they have a high MVTR but can be used in a variety of dressing applications
