Abstract:

The aim of the research was to elaborate the manufacturing method of modified non-woven materials for medical use as absorbent material in consumers’ plasters. The modified non-woven materials obtained from polypropylene or viscose fibres, using buffered chitosan salt as binding agent. The introduction of chitosan in the form of salt gave the non-woven fabric anti-microbe and bacteriostatic properties. The absorptiveness, physical and chemical properties of modified non-woven fabrics were evaluated, moreover their cytotoxicity and irritating properties were evaluated in accordance with harmonized norms.
