There are many reasons why tapes are replacing traditional fixing methods. Among these is the strong and reliable bond that tapes provide and their additional functionality such as sealing, shielding, insulating and cushioning. In addition to these benefits, joining with tape offers greater design options, product quality and enhanced manufacturing efficiencies.
A customised adhesive component offers a number of benefits to designers and engineers. Product designs can be streamlined with invisible joins and product manufacture is made simple with a convenient and easy to handle component. Adhesive parts can be designed with application aids, or for use in automated assembly processes.
When choosing an adhesive product, there are some key criteria to consider so that the desired performance is achieved. By understanding the end product and conditions it will be subject to, a material can be specified that will last the full life of your product.
Breathable, comfortable and skin friendly stick to skin materials
When designing stick to skin wearable devices, it is important to consider the balance between a weight bearing adhesive that will hold the device and avoiding excessive skin irritation and discomfort to the patient. Clean and gentle removal of the device is also an important consideration in both long and short-term wear. These challenges can be approached with advanced skin friendly materials such as gentle and breathable silicone adhesive products. Optically clear products allow for the application site to be monitored without removing the device and can be used where light sensing is required.
‘2 in 1’ materials which have an aggressive adhesive for bonding to the device on one side and a gentler adhesive for the skin on the other are often ideal for device attachment applications. The skin friendly adhesives available as standard on ‘2 in 1’ tapes range from gentle silicone adhesives to acrylic adhesives with varying adhesion levels to suit most requirements.
We can advise on the most suitable materials and adhesives for your exact specification. We make the ideal partner at every stage of your product life cycle; from R&D design, prototyping and testing, through to full production and automated assembly.
