From single- and double-coated foams to films and non-wovens, pressure-sensitive adhesive tapes are proving to be a desirable alternative to liquid adhesives, screws, rivets, clips, and other fasteners in monitoring, pacing, and defibrillation devices as well as IV hold-down and surgical drape applications.
