Protecting and Delivering the Ultimate in Wound Care

Technology partners work together to produce a deep-drawn blister.

In 2009, Texas-based specialty pharmaceutical company ULURU Inc. introduced Altrazeal, a powder polymer material for treating chronic and acute wounds. When exposed to body fluids, the powder transforms into a three-dimensional microporous film that contours to the shapes of wounds. Capillaries form in the microporous film, promoting a high moisture-vapor transpiration rate, which helps manage wound exudate and creates an appropriate moist environment for wound healing. The film’s small pore size enables oxygen transport to the wound bed while preventing bacteria penetration.
