French term or phrase: la technologie TLC-contact

I am translating a short document about the properties and the description of a dressing.

Here is the sentence:

XXXX est un pansement super-absorbant de type hydrocellulaire béneficiant de la technologie TLC contact, innovation des Laboratoires XXX. La technologie TLC-contact consiste en l'enduction d'une compresse polyuréthane par une matric lipidocolloide micro-adhérente.

Now, do I just translate this as "TLC-contact technology"?

I cannot find any refs. to this :-)

Thank you!

Lipidocolloid technology? Or TRIACT Technology?


TLC = technologie lipido-colloïde

Maybe this is a possibility? Contact Layer Dressing with TRIACT technology?
