HexaLock Technology – An innovative solution to overcoming the key clinical challenges

Biatain Fiber is developed with and for healthcare professionals to overcome the challenges they experience in their daily work when managing challenging wounds with gelling fiber dressings.

To provide a solution for the challenges experienced by healthcare professionals, we developed Biatain Fiber with HexaLock Technology. HexaLock Technology is a unique technology that gives Biatain Fiber its benefits and ability to deliver optimal healing conditions.

The science behind Biatain Fiber

The science behind Biatain Fiber

What is HexaLock Technology?
HexaLock Technology is the synergy between an optimised combination of absorbing sodium carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC) fibers and strengthening fibers, thermobonding and a reinforced hexagon net, which in combination gives Biatain Fiber its ability to deliver optimal healing conditions.

Optimised fiber combination
Biatain Fiber with HexaLock Technology is made of an optimised combination of absorbing CMC gelling fibers and strengthening fibers – each lending important properties to the final product.

The CMC fibers act as an absorbing agent that forms a gel when in contact with exudate, while the strengthening fibers increase wet strength throughout the dressing.

 

Thermobonded fibers for integrated strength
The fibers are thermobonded using heat treatment. This locks the strengthening fibers together around the absorbing CMC fibers to create a supporting 3D network. In this way, the strengthening fibers create a scaffold for the CMC fibers to absorb within while strength is integrated and distributed across the product.

 

Reinforced hexagon net
The gelling fibers are integrated in a reinforced hexagon net by ultrasonic embossment.

An award-winning product design

Red Dot Award for an innovative product

 

Biatain Fiber received recognition for its outstanding product design as the winner of the Red Dot “Product Design 2020: Innovative Product” award.

Biatain Fiber demonstrates high performance in lab tests

Thanks to HexaLock Technology, Biatain Fiber demonstrates high performance when we put it to the test in the lab. Just imagine the impact when applying the product in wounds.

16 % higher absorption and 33% better retention*1

58% less shrinkage*1

57 % stronger*1

*Compared to Aquacel Extra, in lab test. #Wet strength in weakest direction.
