Silon-IPN®—Interpenetrating Polymer Network

Numerous silicone formulations have been developed for a wide variety of commercial applications. Some offer high strength and stiffness; others provide a soft and sticky character. Silon-IPN from Bio Med Sciences combines the best of both worlds.

Bio Med Sciences’ Interpenetrating Polymer Network technology combines strength and softness or adhesion in one unique formulation. Silon-IPN is ideal for a wide range of clinical and consumer wound, scar or skin care products — as well as other medical and non-medical applications.

Combining the Properties of Silicone and PTFE

Silon-IPN semipermeable membranes are a unique blend of silicone and Teflon® (PTFE), resulting in very thin sheets of soft & tacky silicone with significantly enhanced physical strength.
