Adhesive Foam Tape

November 30, -0001

Scapa Medical, Windsor, CT, has introduced Bioflex Rx1152P, a white polyethylene foam that is 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.  Rx1152P provides an immediate gentle bond to skin, and allows pain-free removal. The product is supplied on a 60-pound white kraft release liner.
