DOW CORNING: Skin Adhesive
This company will reportedly introduce its strongest soft skin adhesive (SSA) at COMPAMED 2016, which took place November 14-17 in Düsseldorf, Germany. Dow Corning® MG 7-1010 soft skin adhesive reportedly bridges the gap between the company’s high-adhesion pressure-sensitive adhesives (PSAs) and gentle-adhesion SSAs, to deliver strong attachment for today’s wearable medical devices.
“Wearable medical devices such as wireless monitors can have a major impact on a person’s quality of life by empowering patients to take charge of their own health and enjoy greater mobility and freedom,” said Marie Crane, global segment leader for medical devices. “To address the requirements of this emerging market, we developed a strong, durable adhesive that is gentle even on sensitive skin. This innovative product further expands our extensive portfolio of silicone-based adhesives, and demonstrates our ongoing investment in advanced technologies for the medical device industry.”
