Skin Adhesive

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

Medical Tapes and Bandages

Our adhesives meet a broad range of applications for tapes and bandages, and they offer a variety of performance, balancing adhesion and ease of removal.

Wearable Devices

The adhesive must accommodate the unique weight and geometry of the device, whether it’s a patient monitoring device or thermometer patch.

Wound Dressings

Wound dressing adhesives need to be skin-friendly with long-term wear. Our adhesives are suitable for all skin types and balance adhesion with performance.

Drapes and Incision Films

Adhesives help surgical drapes stay in place during surgery, while incision films minimize surgical impact on the skin. They must bond quickly to sterilized skin.

Athletic and Kinesiology Tapes

Kinesiology tapes maintain adhesion under stress and sweat, while allowing athletes to maintain high performance.

Specialty Custom Solutions

From ostomy to electronics, our technical team partners with customers to deliver products that meet their needs and performance requirements.

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.
