Adhesive expertise developed through decades of experience

You can find our expertise in medical adhesives at the intersection between skin science, materials, and – most importantly – human factors. What are the demographics of the user? How long is the device intended to stick to the skin? Where on the body will it be worn? What are the activity levels during use? These questions are at the genesis of every solution. 

Adhesive material selection matters when it comes to the design and application of medical wearables. We offer a wide range of solutions, including skin contact tapes, tie layer tapes, and cover (or overlay) tapes.



Medical adhesive solutions for short- and long-term wear

Wearable medical devices can offer many patient care benefits, from easy administration to around-the-clock monitoring, and medication management. However, if the device cannot comfortably and reliably be worn, it cannot deliver optimal outcomes — while prescribed wear times can sometimes be as long as 30 days.

For these long-term wear applications, adhesives need to be able to maintain their bond, but must also manage moisture, be breathable, and fit lifestyle requirements like showering and exercising. We offer a solution for every situation.
