Hydrolytic stability of polyurethane medical adhesive dressings

Biomaterials. 1994 Jan;15(1):59-62. doi: 10.1016/0142-9612(94)90198-8.


The present study deals with the effect of the type and chemical character of incorporated polyester (polyether blocks) on the hydrolytic stability of different types of polyurethane medical adhesive dressings. Diffusion parameters of the investigated polyurethane adhesives, giving information concerning the chemical changes taking place in water or physiological solution, have also been determined.
