Tue, 08/12/2008 - 8:14am
To assist tape converters and medical device manufacturers in meeting these high-quality standards, MACtac Medical Products recently developed its new Silk ultimate adhesive systems, comprised of three levels of adhesion— Soft Touch, General Purpose and Extra Strength— to provide customers with a range of adhesion levels, from those suitable for short-term wear and sensitive skin applications to demanding, long-term wear applications. Silk adhesives offer excellent skin adhesion, but remove cleanly and gently from skin without leaving residue or causing skin trauma. With superior adhesion to low surface energy substrates, silk adhesives deliver high shear strength without sacrificing tack and peel. All Silk adhesives are suitable for sustained skin contact with third-party biocompatibility documentation, and are stable after EtO or gamma sterilization.
