Pattern Coated Adhesives & Long-Term Wear Stick-to-Skin Applications

arrow-right

When designing a stick-to-skin die-cut adhesive patch for long-term wear medical or health and beauty applications, it is important to select a carrier that balances breathability and moisture transmission with an adhesive’s ability to seal out contaminants. Materials with the right balance will stay adhered to the skin while minimizing moisture build-up, improving patient comfort, and reducing the risk of infection. This article examines which carriers offer higher moisture vapor transmission rate (MVTR) levels for long-term wear stick-to-skin applications and how pattern-coated adhesives can benefit MVTR.

Short- vs. Long-term Wear Stick-to-Skin Adhesives

arrow-right

How do you select the right pressure-sensitive adhesive for your stick-to-skin application? Balancing adhesion strength, breathability, conformability, and removability, along with end-use wear time needs - it can be tricky. Short-term wear stick-to-skin adhesives may need but a few minutes or a few days to be effective while long-term wear could mean as much as a month. Let's see some of the different applications for short- and long-term wear stick-to-skin adhesives and take a look at what medical device design engineers should consider when selecting carriers and adhesives for on-body applications.
