Healthcare manufacturers are constantly looking for enhanced silicone-based ingredients and formulations to make skin-friendly, low-trauma adhesives for wound care products such as bandages, dressings and surgical tapes. We are dedicated to designing and providing silicone-based soft skin adhesive (SSA) gels that accelerate healing and are easily removable, thus lessening pain for patients and avoiding exacerbation of existing wounds and ulcers.
The main technical requirements for an SSA silicone gel for wound care applications are the following:
Suitability for coating processes : viscosity and cure kinetics of the product
High adhesion to skin (no lift) : network designed to provide very high tack, shear and peel adhesion performance levels
Adhesion to the substrate (no offset) : silicone anchorage to various substrates (PU films, knitted fabrics, non-woven, etc.)
