Secure Skin Attachment

Skin is the largest organ in the human body, and it varies greatly from person to person. Skin can be fragile, wet, elastic, oily, dry, or any number of combinations. Choosing the right skin attachment adhesive is both fundamental and critical when designing a medical device to ensure successful attachment to patient skin.

Our pressure-sensitive adhesive (PSA) solutions are used for a variety of applications:

  • Medical tapes and bandages
  • Wearable devices
  • Wound dressings
  • Drapes and incision films
  • Athletic and kinesiology tapes
  • Specialty custom solutions

Pressure-Sensitive Adhesive (PSA) Technologies

Pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA) peel adhesion tends to vary from patient to patient, depending on variations in the patients’ skin oiliness and their overall activity. Other factors include device design and sterilization. Our most popular adhesives are solvent-based acrylic technologies and hot melt PSA technology. Each of these technologies brings different benefits and are used for different applications.
 
At H.B. Fuller, all of our skin attachment adhesives have been thoroughly tested and are compatible with ISO 10993 protocols. Our team of application and technology experts are dedicated to helping guide you to the right skin adhesives for your specific skin attachment application needs.
