Healthcare

The healthcare industry is one of the most demanding in the world. Products used for medical and long-term care applications are required to meet strict specifications to perform as required. OMNOVA binders provide strength and resistance to water and other liquids in everything from medical garments to carpet and flooring, as well as infant and adult diapers. Antioxidants protect surgical gloves and other rubber and plastic medical products from thermal oxidation to enhance their life cycle. Our floor care chemicals provide high-gloss and wear resistance characteristics to floor polish formulations for improved aesthetics and to reduce maintenance costs associated with frequent applications. Our opacifiers deliver pearlescent to white coloration, as well as uniform consistency, to liquid soaps, shampoos and lotions.

Our Coated Fabrics, featuring PreFixx protective finish are ideal for today’s medical and long-term care environments. They can be easily cleaned, and are resistant to bodily fluids and many of the harsh cleaning products used to disinfect exam rooms. OMNOVA Coated Fabrics also are used to provide durability and style to waiting room seating. Our Laminates provide surfacing solutions for many healthcare applications, ranging from cabinetry and work surfaces to over-the-bed tray tables and wall protection. Our Performance Films are used to fabricate a variety of healthcare products, including mattress covers, patient curtains and protective apparel. OMNOVA’s digitally-printed viewnique wall murals can turn an ordinary wall into a beautiful canvas to educate patients or to support patient recovery.
