Wearable medical adhesive tapes and related flexible materials can be utilized at every stage of life, from neonatal to geriatric care. Tapes may be applied directly to the skin to protect sensitive body parts such as eyes and feet, heal wounds, or enhance body image with adhesive beauty aids. Skin-friendly tapes can also be used to dispense nutraceutical compounds to the body through a transdermal patch, conduct electricity, maintain thermal management, or adhere a wearable sensor to the skin such as a CGM monitor. Aggressive adhesives are used to hold together or join parts of a medical device, known as a tie layer, or used to protect the device from external conditions.
Knowing that medical adhesives and materials impact the quality of life, MBK Tape Solutions sources top-quality raw materials from 3M and other qualified suppliers to convert them into usable and wearable products. Whether the materials come into direct or indirect contact with the body, these substrates need proper biocompatibility testing and usage studies.
Adhesives need to be comfortable on the skin, strong enough to stick for the desired length of time required, and removed easily and gently when ready. Other factors to consider when selecting adhesives include wear duration. moisture management, breathability, and sterilization. The combination of adhesive and backing material needs to work together for the best performance and reliability.
