Silicone Gel Adhesives in the Wearable Device Market

Consumer electronics companies are expanding into the healthcare wearable device market. From glucose monitors to exercise tracking devices, the healthcare wearables industry continues to develop innovative and new technologies. With the population aging, patient monitoring is becoming ever more important to get the earliest indications of a health problem that may arise. Wearable devices are designed to improve health and lifestyle choices by around the clock monitoring of calories, body temperature, vital signs and many more.

Polymer Science, Inc. offers silicone gel adhesives for short term wear lasting only a couple of hours to long term wear lasting multiple days to even weeks.  Our silicone gel adhesives offer a gentle yet, effective adhesion and will naturally conform to the contours of the body. These gels boast a wide range of characteristics listed below as well as many others:

  • Waterproof
  • Biocompatible
  • Repositionable
  • Atraumatic Removal from the Skin

As always, Polymer Science, Inc. is committed to working closely with you during the design phase of your application. By offering a variety of coating techniques and configurations, our ability to customize your product distinguishes us from other silicone gel adhesive suppliers.

Negative Pressure Wound Therapy

Polymer Science, Inc. prides itself on ground breaking innovation and being the best Silicone Gel Coater worldwide.  We are proud to release two new products for the Advanced Wound Care market.  Our solution in Negative Pressure Wound Therapy, which creates optimal healing environments at the wound site, are PS-1829 and PS-2151.

Our Negative Pressure Wound Therapy products encourage:PS-2151 pic.jpg

  • Obstruction of channeling and tunneling
  • Acceleration of wound healing times
  • Reduction of erythema
  • Granulation at the wound site

P-­DERM® PS-­1829 is a high adhesion silicone gel adhesive tape for direct skin contact which has been coated onto a polyurethane carrier.  PS-­1829 was developed to bridge the gap between traditional silicone gel adhesives and silicone PSA’s.

P-­DERM® PS-2151 is a silicone gel and acrylic trilaminate consisting of a high adhesion silicone gel, polyurethane support and medical pressure sensitive acrylic.

New Case Study – Custom RED Color – P-THERM PS-1545 5W/mK Gap Filler

Check out our new case study involving P-THERM® PS-1545 5W/mK Gap Filler

P-THERM Red Gap FillerNew designs spanning many markets contain an electronic interface component – appliances, thermostats, medical devices even automobiles.  In this case study, the customer is designing an automotive infotainment module (think dashboard touch screen) which required heat removal with the aid of a thermally conductive gap filler.  PSI meets all of the customer’s requests by creating the gap filler material in a custom red color, responding rapidly to sample requests and providing high quality technical support.
