Vancive Medical Technologies Unveils New PVC-Free Foam at Medica 2015

CHICAGO – November 16, 2015 – Vancive Medical Technologies will unveil a new eco-friendly PVC-free foam at Medica, 16-19 November, in Düsseldorf, Germany.

This new single-coated foam is biocompatible, not made using natural rubber latex, and non-irritating to the skin. It offers all the same benefits as a traditional PVC foam including conformability, elasticity, cushioning, flexibility and breathability.

“We are very pleased to bring a product to market that supports our sustainability initiative and meets the needs of our customers,” said Colleen Ward, Vice President Global Marketing. “This new PVC-free foam looks, feels and functions like a traditional foam, and is an excellent environmentally friendly alternative.”

The PVC-free foam is available in both white and tan, and with the option for perforation to enhance breathability.

Also on display will be products for wound care, surgical, ostomy and wearable device applications.
