P-DERM® Silicone Bilaminate Gel Adhesive
Medical-grade silicone gels are used in many skin-contact applications. Polymer Science designs P-DERM® Silicone bilaminates for use in medical tapes and bandages. Our engineers and talented staff help our partners find the ideal skin contact product for the medical industry. With decades of knowledge, Polymer Science has the resources to fulfill your needs.
P-DERM® Silicone Bilaminates
Many manufacturers may first contact Polymer Science by viewing our product data sheets. Fortunately, our team is highly experienced and understands that you may need a unique construction of our laminates. Our process includes consultation, sampling and even formulating customized solutions. Since P-DERM® products are manufactured in the USA, even our customized solutions can help save time delays.
P-DERM® Silicone bilaminates are laminated on one side with a silicone gel adhesive. The biocompatibility of our silicone gels allow for skin contact on the bottom laminate and a non-adhesive coated face for other materials to be bonded on the top layer. Silicone bilaminates are especially effective in moist wound care, negative pressure wound therapy and wearable devices. Silicone bilaminates can be produced with different adhesives to suit specific wear requirements of the application. Polymer Science has a talented support team to identify the optimal solution for your needs.
Polymer Science’s P-DERM® Silicone bilaminates are biocompatible with skin, atraumatic and naturally conform to the contours of the body. Bilaminates are used widely for point-of-care applications because silicone gel adhesives provide many skin contact benefits. Common applications include ostomy devices, diagnostic testing devices, advanced wound care and other medical devices. The proper silicone bilaminate influences the performance and effectiveness of devices. Polymer Science offers technical data sheets for manufacturers to review, and we provide consultation, customized solutions and solutions when you contact our team.
Polymer Science’s silicone bilaminates are manufactured in the USA. This helps manufacturers in need of nimble and effective solutions. Our P-DERM® Silicone bilaminates benefit many applications. We offer variations with lower vert, lower trauma and lower adhesion for use in scar therapy, short-term applications and some wound care options. Higher-adhesion silicone gel adhesives are suitable for long-term wear applications.
Our technical product sheets include our common silicone bilaminate gels with various adhesives, perforation sizes, grams per square meter and carrier types. Contact our team for more information.
P-SHIELD® Silicone Bilaminate Gel Adhesives
Moist Wound Dressings
Silicone gel adhesives are self-adhering and impermeable to outside contaminants. Our silicone gel products allow the skin to “breathe.” When used in moist wound dressings, silicone gel adhesives help to improve wound healing time, reduce the formation of scarring and relieve discomfort during dressing changes or removal. Moist wound dressings treat many wounds from superficial wounds and dry skin conditions to deep wounds and pressure wounds.
Negative Pressure Wound Therapy
Polymer Science P-DERM® Silicone gel adhesives are used in negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT). 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 your application.
P-DERM® Silicone gel adhesives from Polymer Science are used in many IV securement devices. Our silicone gel adhesives secure edges and conform to the skin. To improve patient outcomes, IV securement devices must hold the IV catheter in place. Silicone gel adhesives prevent needle movement while remaining gentle on the skin. Atraumatic removal and moisture management aide in patient comfort and support treatment goals.
Medical tape supports the placement of medical devices, tubing and bandages onto the skin. Polymer Science’s silicone gel adhesives feature excellent adhesion to anchor tape securely in place.
Bandages and Dressings
Bandages, compresses and dressings encompass products used to cover and protect wounds. Bandages and dressings may absorb, exudate, repel bacteria and help prevent infections. Silicone gel adhesives aid many medical bandages and dressing designs that require adhesion and atraumatic removal. Polymer Science P-DERM® Silicone gel adhesives are offered in bilaminates and trilaminates, various adhesives and multiple carriers to suit the needs of manufacturers.
Ostomy Flanges & Flange Extenders
Ostomy care requires adhesive solutions that are conformable, reliable and gentle on the skin. Silicone gel adhesives are helpful in ostomy flanges and flange extenders for colostomy, ileostomy and urostomy conditions.
Incontinence Gaskets & Seals
Caring for incontinence requires comfort and dependable medical gaskets and seals. Polymer Science offers a number of products within the P-DERM® category to conform, adhere and protect the skin.
Active & Passive Wearable Devices
Wearable medical devices are widely used to treat, monitor and personalize treatments. Mobility of both active and passive wearable devices often requires easy-to-secure and remove adhesives. P-DERM® products from Polymer Science suit many applications.
