Avery Dennison Performance Polymers offers a full range of skin contact solvent and emulsion acrylic and synthetic rubber hot melt adhesives, designed and approved for use in medical applications. Along with specific performance characteristics, these adhesives provide:
- Patient comfort
- Bond integrity to skin
- Resistance to moisture and oils
- Ease of repositioning and removal
Performance Polymers understands the demanding requirements of these applications and can provide their expertise to help select an adhesive. We strive to meet the highest quality standards by performing a battery of stringent tests, measuring performance characteristics, including cytotoxicity (acute skin contact, eye contact, ingestion), migration and odor/VOC levels.
In addition to standard adhesives, the challenging nature of these applications often requires specifically formulated, customized adhesive solutions. Working closely with our customers, our scientists and engineers can quickly adjust existing adhesive platforms or develop new polymer systems to address the most complex challenges.
