SFM's proprietary fibre and yarn based technologies are aimed at addressing the needs of patients and the wound care industry

Alginates

SFM has been a major supplier of alginates to the wound care industry for over 30 years. SFM are able to offer a range of non-woven fabrics including, composite products, constructed using alginate fibres which are manufactured from sodium alginate extracted from seaweed.Alginate polymers are comprised of a mixture of...

Reinforced Alginates

For over 30 years alginate dressings have been part of the clinicians armoury in treating wounds. George Winter demonstrated in the early 1960’s that rather than being allowed to dry and scab over, wounds heal faster when they are kept moist¹. Alginate dressings were developed in part in response to...

Modified Cellulose

Modified cellulose fibres such as carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC) or cellulose ethylsulfonate (CES) are capable of absorbing large amounts of fluid which is important in the management of chronic wounds.When in the form of a non-woven dressing this conformable material can absorb a large amount of wound fluid, such as exudate...

Nanotechnology (Titan)

The use of nanotechnology in medical applications has grown rapidly in recent years¹. Of all the nanoparticles available currently, silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) have attracted the most attention due to their potential as novel antibacterial agents. They exhibit relatively low cytotoxicity to human cells and broad spectrum activity² ³. SFM have...
