Adhesive Foam Tape for Direct Skin Application



Windsor, Connecticut - November 16, 2004.... Scapa Medical has introduced Bioflex Rx1152P, a white polyethylene foam, single coated with a high molecular weight rubber based medical adhesive for direct skin applications such as bandages, monitoring sensors, and personal care items.

The adhesive used on Rx1152P is composed of a gelatinous thermoplastic material that behaves like a solid adhesive but conforms like a liquid. The adhesive resembles a hydrogel but is not water sensitive. While it provides adhesion properties similar to those of a hydrogel, it will not dry out, eliminating packaging and storage problems.
