Stick-to-Skin Applications — The Basics

Our product managers are experts at choosing and sourcing the right adhesive for your specific application. From a 1 hour wear skin contacting adhesive to a 21+ day wear adhesive, our network of world-class medical grade adhesive, film and hydrogel manufacturers allow us to select the right material to fit your needs. Let us solve your next challenging skin-to-skin application!

Products we’ve produced over the years include:

Wound care dressings

There are countless factors to consider when developing wound care dressings. We provide customers with material guidance and manufacturing solutions that improve product quality. Whether you’re in need of a wound care product that conforms to body contours or an antimicrobial film to promote healing, we are here to help. 

Antimicrobial wound dressing wraps for military

When lives are on the line, it’s crucial for military personnel to have access to high-quality antimicrobial wound dressing wraps. We’ve produced custom wound dressings used in the battlefield. 

Suture strips

Patients rely on suture strips to secure a wound and support healing after an injury. This important type of medical tape needs to be comfortable and secure, while providing maximum breathability. Let us take a look at manufacturing your next custom suture strip!

Surgical drapes

We’ve produced various custom surgical drapes that are used daily in the Operating Room. We have access to various medical films and materials that provide critical barrier protection for infection control. 

Body worn sensors for cardiac arrhythmia

Cardiac arrhythmia, or an irregular heartbeat, sometimes requires the use of an electrocardiogram (ECG) for patient monitoring. Our custom electrode solutions help to provide an accurate cardiac analysis, while incorporating features that improve patient comfort. 

IV securement

Securing an IV to a patient presents a unique challenge due to the presence of bodily fluids. Our expertise in adhesives helps us to develop products that enhance IV securement to the patient’s skin. Reach out to our team if you have a unique IV securement patch you need manufactured. 

Veterinarian applications

Securing medical devices when there is a large presence of hair can be difficult for veterinarians, but we have worked closely with industry professionals to develop novel solutions. Additionally, we’ve produced various medical consumables that are sold for various Veterinarian applications. 

Various device fixation disposables

We have the expertise to produce various consumables using tapes, adhesives and films that aid in device securement.
