Die-Cut Adhesives – Applications and Benefits Within the Electric Vehicle Battery Pack


Within the world of the EV battery, there are many applications for custom die-cut materials, in particular, tapes and adhesives. What lies ahead will be an educational journey through the many benefits one might see when choosing to use die-cut pressure-sensitive adhesives and tapes instead of mechanical fasteners and liquid adhesives and sealants in an EV battery application.

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


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.

Wearable Adhesives for Stick-to-Skin Applications


The applications are nearly endless when it comes to stick-to-skin wearable device tapes and adhesives. Diabetic patients can monitor glucose levels with non-invasive on-body, continuous monitoring systems that allow them to go about their lives relatively unhindered. Individuals can gradually quit smoking through the use of die-cut transdermal patches that deliver a specific amount of nicotine through the skin and into the bloodstream
