P-DERM® Tapes & Medical Grade Adhesives
Polymer Science is a global leader in designing and manufacturing tapes and medical grade adhesives. Our catalog of products includes film tapes, foam tapes and transfer adhesives developed over decades of research and innovation. Polymer Science is dedicated to further developing P-DERM® skin contact products for the medical industry.
P-DERM® acrylic, polyurethane and hot-melt adhesives balance tack, shear and peel for proven compatibility with skin. Polymer Science offers acrylic, polyurethane and hot-melt adhesives laminated to a variety of surfaces including films, foams and our gel adhesives. With decades of experience, Polymer Science helps companies find the best solution for their medical-grade tape and adhesive applications.
Polymer Science P-DERM® tapes and medical-grade adhesives perform like a standard bandage material. A cost-effective solution for skin contact, tapes and acrylic transfer adhesives are used throughout the medical industry. All P-DERM® tapes and medical-grade adhesives are manufactured in the USA. This helps our team provide fast and nimble solutions for our business partners.
With a wide range of tapes and medical-grade adhesives, our materials are exceptionally functional for many applications. Polymer Science’s P-DERM® tape readily contours to irregular shapes and provides excellent instantaneous and strong tack. Our P-DERM® acrylic transfer adhesive, film tapes and foam tapes bond well to porous and nonporous materials. Proven for skin contact, P-DERM® products remain gentle to the skin, hypoallergenic, with high MVTR (Moisture Vapor Transmission Rate) and biocompatibility. P-DERM® adhesives have extended wear because of their ability to resist heat and humidity. Our various medical tapes range from extremely aggressive to low trauma adhesion with residue-free removal from the skin.
Polymer Science has an experienced and customer-focused team to help you find the best solution for your application. We offer many varieties of transfer adhesives. Single-coated medical tape is available in variations of polyethylene film, polyurethane film and polyethylene foam. Double-coated variations include double-coated polyethylene film tape, double-coated non-woven polyester film tape and double-coated polyethylene foam tape. Within these variations, Polymer Science offers various adhesive coat weights and thicknesses. Because our products vary and your needs are unique, our staff is very responsive to all inquiries.
P-DERM® Tapes & Medical Grade Adhesives
In-Vitro diagnostic devices are used to perform tests in professional medical settings, and more often than ever before, at home by patients. The adhesives for these devices cannot interfere with the assay. Applications include blood glucose testing, ovulation testing, COVID-19 testing and allergy screenings. Polymer Science helps manufacturers identify the medical-grade adhesive and tapes best suited for in-vitro diagnostics.
Polymer Science’s P-DERM® medical tapes are designed to secure IV and other devices. Acrylic adhesives and polyurethane tapes provide good initial adhesion, high moisture vapor permeable and hypoallergenic characteristics beneficial in IV securement.
Bandages and Dressings
Encompassing products used to cover and protect wounds, bandages and dressings may absorb exudate, repel bacteria and help prevent infections. Polymer Science P-DERM® medical-grade adhesives and tapes are used in bandages, compresses and dressings.
Polymer Science P-DERM® adhesives and tapes are proven for skin contact. Securing any material to the skin requires knowledge and safe adhesives. Polymer Science products are used in various cosmetic and fashion adhesives to protect skin against irritation and offer atraumatic removal.
Ostomy Flanges & Flange Extenders
Ostomy care requires adhesive solutions that are conformable, reliable and gentle on the skin. P-DERM® medical-grade adhesives and tapes are helpful in ostomy flanges and flange extenders for colostomy, ileostomy and urostomy conditions.
Negative Pressure Wound Therapy
Polymer Science P-DERM® tapes are used in negative pressure wound therapy. This therapeutic technique uses a vacuum pump, tubing and dressing to remove exudate and promote the growth of new tissue. NPWT treats acute wounds, burns and diabetic ulcers. We work with our clients to identify the best solution for their applications.
Active & Passive Wearable Devices
New technologies in wearable devices require medical adhesives and tapes for use in professional medical settings and patients’ homes. Polymer Science works with many companies at the forefront of wearable devices. P-DERM® medical tapes are suited to active and passive wearable devices.
