Creating New Barrier Products

About 1/3 of the Micrex®/Microcreper™ installations globally are producing healthcare related products. These range from wound care and medical devices to barrier products such as CSR wrap.

 

Another area of application are substrates used to enhance the performance of the building envelope. Microcreping adds extensibility, and conformance – significantly improving the utility of the substrates used in barrier applications.

 

Companies around the world are looking for new products to respond to the current coronavirus, as well as future threats. Some materials which may be too stiff, harsh or otherwise unusable for barrier applications can be rendered suitable by treatment by the Micrex Process.

 

If you are involved in the development of new barrier or protective products, we encourage you to take advantage of our no cost Screening Trial program and see if Micrex can help you improve your product.

Best Practices for Roll Goods Trials

The product development process starts with a trial, and at Micrex, every new product we develop also started this way. We’d like to share what we’ve learned about the trial process to help ensure that your next trial a success.

Roll Goods Trials – Best Practices

Our Product Is Our Technology

We are often asked — “What are you selling?” This is a reasonable question for companies looking for commodity products.

There are no “Micrex wipes” or “Micrex bandages” – At Micrex, our product is our technology.

IDEA 2016

We collaborate with some of the most creative Research & Development organizations in the world. Micrex may be viewed externally as a contract converter or equipment manufacturer by some, but at our core, we are focused on new products.

To see what we can do now and in the future, we suggest that you focus on how The Micrex Process alters product properties, such as bulk, stretch and extensibility, pre-shrinking, absorbency, decorative effects and softness on a wide range of substrates.

The real question is: how can these attributes be used to enhance your existing products or enable a whole new product category. Every product developed with Micrex technology was once a new product.
