Barrier film

December 14, 2011

A new barrier film for ostomy applications constructed of novel materials and designed for user confidence and comfort is now available from Avery Dennison Medical Solutions. InteliShield Barrier Film is PVC-, PVdC- and plasticizer-free, which makes it less damaging to the environment than traditional films and provides manufacturers with more cost effective disposal of intermediate scrap.

InteliShield Barrier Film features an antimicrobial inner surface, while additional layers deliver enhanced strength and secure bonding. It is also durable against ripping or tearing – ostomy bags made with the film passed the industry standard burst test ISO/DIN 86760-2.

"Traditional ostomy films are soft, flexible and quiet because they use environmentally damaging plasticizers, such as DEHP," explains Kevin Jones, global market segment manager, Avery Dennison Medical Solutions. "InteliShield Barrier Film uses a unique combination of plastics that produce these properties without plasticizers. The film has demonstrated softness, flexibility and quietness comparable to existing films."
