Aegimer™ is a family of novel vinyl pyrrolidone copolymers with (alkyl)maleates. Aegimer™ vinyl pyrrolidone maleate copolymers are precisely tuneable in their hydrophilic/hydrophobic balance. The polymers show strong affinity to skin substrates and are tuneable to form protective invisable highly waterproof skin barriers.
Aegimer™ copolymers are currently being developed towards (antimicrobial) skin care product types and (lubricious) medical device coatings. All to improve patient safety in hospital settings.
