  • Biodurability: low surface tension, thermal stability and chemical stability
  • Good resistance to a large number of solvents and chemicals
  • Sterilizable for single and repeated use (ethylene oxide)
  • Good weathering, UV and aging resistance
  • High transparency
  • Repositionable

Applications

  • Wound dressings
  • Fixing of wearables
  • Traditional wound care
  • Medical pressure-sensitive adhesive tapes / kinesiology tapes
