Selection Criteria for Skin Contact Adhesives

arrow-right

Selecting a stick-to-skin (skin-contact) adhesive is different from choosing an industrial pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA). Unlike static substrates such as foam, metals, plastic, felts and foils, the skin is a living, breathing substrate. It is highly elastic and can change over time as cell cycles renew frequently. This post, prepared with the help of some of our vendor partners, examines some factors to consider when selecting a skin contact adhesive for your wearable medical device or health and beauty product.

8 Things to Consider When Designing Multi-Layer Stick-to-Skin Products

arrow-right

Advances in medical device design are driving lighter, smaller, more user-friendly stick-to-skin devices that can be used in at-home settings as well as in a hospital or physician’s office. But while they are easy to use from an end-user standpoint, they are not always simple to design and fabricate. Many “patches” are actually complex multi-layer material laminations that require significant thought on material selection and design for manufacturability. This post examines 8 key things to consider when designing a multi-layered stick-to-skin product.
