VISIT US AT MD&M West 2019!

VISIT US AT BOOTH 2151!

Polymer Science, Inc. will be exhibiting at MD&M West in Anaheim, CA on February 5-7. Polymer Science manufactures adhesives and coated materials for use in the medical device and wound care industries. Our P-DERM® adhesive materials include acrylics and medical grade adhesives, hydrogel adhesives and silicone gel adhesives. Polymer Science also offers hydrophilic coatings, as well as, silicone and polyurethane elastomers for a variety of  skin-contact applications.

We are excited to release PS-2410 at this year’s show. 

Our PS-2410 was designed to be easily torn in any direction by hand. PS-2410 is a single coated, microperforated medical grade high performance adhesive tape with an embossed polypropylene carrier and 54# dense kraft siliconized paper liner. PS-2410 is hypoallergenic, offers longer wear times (>10 day), excellent tack and adhesion to low surface energy substrates and readily contours to irregular shapes.

How to Choose the Correct Adhesive for your Wearable Device

Choosing the right adhesive for your wearable device can be a bit trickier than once thought. Through innovation and development of medical grade adhesive tapes, there are quite a few options that will help your device “stick” to the skin, but is it the correct adhesive for your application? Product developments have helped support the growth of the medical device industry to offer different characteristics such as short versus long term wear, atraumatic removal from the skin to avoid MARSI (Medical Adhesive Related Skin Injury) and many more.

Working with a supplier that understands your needs and the materials will save you a lot of time in the research and development phase of your application. Polymer Science, Inc. has a dedicated team of engineers and technical staff that works quickly to provide you solutions, allowing your project to expeditiously move from conception to production. Along with our state-of-the-art equipment, we provide the capabilities to develop a quality product consistent with your application requirements.

We have put together some of the challenges and key questions to consider when designing a wearable device! To learn more, download our “”How to Choose the Correct Adhesive for your Wearable Device” today!
