Medical grade acrylic and silicone adhesives are typically breathable, anti-microbial, sterilize-able, hypoallergenic, hydrophobic or hydrophilic. Hydrocolloid adhesives provide a range of good adhesion, fluid absorption and extended wear. Hydrophilic and hydrophobic tapes and films are moisture vapor permeable and help channel the direction of fluids. Electrically conductive adhesives, often used in ECG electrodes provide adhesion, yet can be cleanly removed.
Medical Grade Adhesive Tapes are best for direct skin contact and designed for disposable, skin friendly applications. Medical and personal care applications include wound care, device attachment, wearable devices, medical sensors & incontinence devices, diagnostics, surgical drapes, cosmetic accessories and adhesive bras.
