Back in the nineties a Spanish chemist was triggered by interesting conversation at a random Dutch birthday party. He overheard the story about recent developments in the medical and surgical industry. Cotton was soon to be abandoned. High technical textiles were about to become the future. The only issue were surgical clamps; used to hold cotton drapes in place but causing severe damage to textile at the same time. He picked up the suggestion to develop skin friendly and wash soluble medical tapes.
The first rolls of medical tape were produced in a twenty-square-meter garage. As business flourished, more production capacity was inevitable. This is how we inherited adhesive recipes and a sophisticated Andalusian look and feel of our headquarters which reveal the Spanish roots of our founding father.
Our focus shifted only when cotton was expelled from almost all European operating rooms. It paved the way for research and development to expand our portfolio.
Everyone worldwide should have access to safe healthcare. Yet hospitals globally face many challenges including the protection and hygiene of patients and surgical staff.
It is our ambition to contribute to the reduction of surgical site infections. We develop, manufacture and provide high quality self-adhesive medical devices. These products are shipped all over the world and are applied to surgical covering materials as an effective barrier to keep the surgical area sterile.
Medical adhesives are the invisible essentials in the medical industry. It makes life of healthcare workers and patients a lot easier and comfortable. Most common are medical devices such as; surgical tape, incise film and wound care products. It is our mission to facilitate these products with the highest efficiency and quality in each possible shape and size.
