The adhesive and backing tapes utilized in the production of your medical device are determined primarily by its key function or purpose. For example, a wound care dressing intended for joint coverage necessitates the use of medical adhesive and robust materials capable of withstanding increased movement and perspiration compared to a medical tape used in surgical procedures.
Before making the final selection, various other factors must be taken into account, including the anticipated duration of wear, the potential fragility or sensitivity of the user’s skin, and the level of breathability required. To ensure a comprehensive understanding of your project and the device’s technical specifications, we will engage you in a series of inquiries before presenting our proposed solution.
With our extensive expertise, we proficiently produce a diverse array of products, employing various medical adhesives.
The selection of the appropriate adhesive for your device is of utmost importance. Insufficient adhesion may result in the device not remaining in place for the necessary duration to achieve its therapeutic effects. Conversely, excessive adhesion can lead to mechanical trauma when removing the tape.
- Silicone adhesives
- Acrylic adhesives
- Synthetic rubber adhesives
- Hydrocolloid adhesives
- Custom tapes and adhesives
The chosen material(s) for your medical device must offer flexibility corresponding to the movement of the specific body part it is designed for, while ensuring adequate support for the medical adhesive to prevent undesired peeling. Here are some of the materials we utilize in the production of medical devices:
- Stiff polyester
- Non-woven materials
- Woven materials
- Medical films
- Medical foams
- Hydrofilic and Hydrophobic films
