This company’s Medical Business Unit has developed two new in vitro diagnostic tapes for blood-glucose monitoring and other devices. ARcare® 8876 is a clear, single-faced, 5-mil, printable polyester film tape that is coated on one side with medical-grade PSA. This tape has unique characteristics that make it an excellent option for many types of die-cut parts. ARcare® 8868 is constructed with a unique, inert acrylic adhesive. This tape is a 3.2-mil-thick, matte polyester film coated on both sides with medical-grade PSA. It is suitable for lamination assemblies of in vitro diagnostic and related membrane-based immunoassay products where labeling is important.
