Hydrocolloid, Hydrophilic and Skin-Friendly Adhesives Meet Unique Stick-to-Skin Application Requirements
Fabrico Medical can work with a design engineer at a medical manufacturer or contract manufacturer to test and recommend the right adhesive for a substrate and application. Adhesives used in these applications can include acrylics, epoxies, and styrene block co-polymers. Fabrico Medical is knowledgeable on new adhesive formulations, including hydrocolloid, hydrophilic, and conductive adhesives.
Hydrocolloid adhesives are the most “skin-friendly” adhesives available, providing a range of formulations for good adhesion, fluid absorption, and extended wear. Hydrophilic and hydrophobic tapes and films are moisture vapor permeable while also capable of providing a seal against liquids. Electrically conductive adhesives provide high, sustained adhesion with no residue on removal. They are often used in ECG electrodes.
With access to a broad range of adhesive suppliers, Fabrico Medical can help design engineers working on applications for wound dressings, ostomy appliances, bandages, and surgical drapes. In addition, Fabrico Medical can offer help with healthcare product packaging, especially using cold seal pressure-sensitive adhesives that bond at room temperature only to themselves; this simplifies assembling materials with paper packaging, without damaging the contents.
Selection and Testing of Nonwoven Materials and Application-Appropriate Adhesives Nonwovens are used in medical applications for surgical gowns and masks, wound care dressings, and surgical drapes. They can be made of natural materials like cotton, or man-made materials such as polyester, polypropylene, po...
