SCAPA: Medical Adhesives

June 1, 2004
Scapa Medical has introduced the MG Series of high molecular weight rubber-based medical adhesives for direct skin applications such as bandages, monitoring sensors and personal care items. MG Series adhesives are composed of a gelatinous thermoplastic material that behaves like a solid adhesive but conforms like a liquid. These adhesives resemble hydrogels but are not water sensitive. They provide adhesion properties similar to those of hydrogels but will not dry out, eliminating packaging and storage problems. MG Series products provide an immediate gentle bond to skin and allow pain-free removal. These adhesives may be used on a variety of substrates, including non-woven fabrics, polyurethane films and polyethylene and polyurethane foams.
