MACtac: Medical Adhesives

A new line of medical adhesive can be used for diagnostic laboratory, patient identification and prescription labeling applications. The medical adhesive solutions for labeling applications are available in medium- to high-sensitivity bright white direct thermal and thermal transfer facestocks, and are topcoated for high performance. These facestocks are available in two adhesive options that are protected by a semi-bleached, calendered kraft liner for excellent die cutting and stripping. For medical vial, test tube and specimen containers labeling, the facestocks are paired with XT-99, a permanent acrylic emulsion adhesive that offers good open time and outstanding mandrel hold and adhesion to curved surfaces and various substrates, including corrugated, glass, and plastic. For a variety of barcode, laboratory files and patient tracking healthcare labeling applications, the facestocks are paired with ST95, a permanent acrylic emulsion adhesive that offers excellent ultimate adhesion, good open time and latex glove-friendly attributes.
