Lohmann Corporation has announced its release of a new range of adhesives developed for the manufacturers of wound care products. The new adhesives, the DuploMED Soft-Stick™ Series allows wound care products such as dressings to be securely applied, but also allows for repositioning and pain-free removal.
The gel like PSAs used in the adhesives aregamma-sterilization stable and won’t damage fragile skin when dressings are removed and changed. In addition, the adhesives ensure that wound dressings can be contoured and sealed without trapping water vapor inside. Although the functionality of the adhesive is very similar to that of silicone medical adhesives, the new formula is a great deal more cost-effective.
In trials, manufacturers remarked on the cost savings they were able to achieve, while caregivers said they were pleased with the adhesive’s performance, comfort, and the pain free dressing removal it offers.
