Innovative Foam Solutions for Healthcare and Prosthetics


The medical and pharmaceutical sectors have witnessed a surge in the demand for specialty foam products. This demand isn’t merely a response to recent events; it has been a consistent trend. At Kewell Converters, we’re proud to have expanded our operations in tandem with some of the most groundbreaking innovators in this domain.

PLASTAZOTE: The Gold Standard in Medical Foam

PLASTAZOTE has emerged as the go-to thermoplastic medical foam material in the healthcare industry. It’s widespread use in various medical applications is a testament to its efficacy and reliability. One of the primary reasons for its popularity is its suitability for applications that require direct skin contact. The unique attributes of pharmaceutical foams like PLASTAZOTE ensure optimal comfort, hygiene, and safety for users.

Key Features of PLASTAZOTE and EVAZOTE

Both PLASTAZOTE and EVAZOTE stand out for their hypoallergenic, latex-free, and non-toxic properties. These characteristics significantly minimise the risk of skin irritations. Additionally, their X-Ray, CT, and MRI-lucent properties make them ideal for crafting splints, supports, and MRI vests. EVAZOTE, in particular, is favoured in scenarios where resilience and a softer touch are paramount, such as in Prosthetics, Podiatrics, and Orthoses.

Diverse Applications of Medical Foam

The versatility of these foams extends beyond the aforementioned uses. They play a pivotal role in hydrotherapy and physiotherapy equipment. Their utility is also evident in protective helmets, exercise mats, implement handles, and wheelchair ramps. The comfort lining they provide is unparalleled, enhancing the user experience. In light of recent global events, we’ve also ventured into producing essential components for personal protective equipment (PPE). This includes elements for face masks and shields, as well as gaskets and seals for life-saving devices like ventilators.
