P-DERM® and Continuous Glucose Monitoring… How We Can Help!

A Continuous Glucose Monitoring System (CGM) will monitor blood sugar (glucose) levels continuously in real-time throughout the day and night.  A tiny electrode called a glucose sensor is inserted under the skin to measure the glucose levels in the tissue fluid. It is connected to a transmitter that can send the information wirelessly to a monitoring device. This makes it easy to determine whether or not the glucose levels are too high or too low.

Polymer Science worked with the leading CGM makers and developed silicone gels for CGM device fixation. Working with development engineers and combining newest silicone formulations with our coating expertise on fabric backings, we developed skin contact silicone adhesives with the following characteristics:

– Wear time above 14 days with constant adhesion profile
– Hypoallergenic
– Waterproof for the more active users
– Atraumatic removal
– Resistant to bacterial growth

Visit us at MD&M West 2018!


Polymer Science, Inc. will be exhibiting at MD&M West in Anaheim, CA on February 6-8. Polymer Science, Inc. manufactures adhesives and coated materials for use in the medical device and wound care industries. Our P-DERM® adhesive materials include acrylics, hydrogels and silicone gel adhesives. Polymer Science, Inc. also offers hydrophilic coatings, as well as, silicone and polyurethane elastomers for a variety of  skin-contact applications.


We will be highlighting 2 new products at this year’s show.



Our PS-2191 was specifically designed for use in the medical wearable device and Negative Pressure Wound Therapy markets. PS-2191 is a 0.17mm thickness perforated ultra high   adhesion silicone gel and acrylic trilaminate. PS-2191 is hypoallergenic, offers longer wear times (>10 day), supports atraumatic removal from the skin and promotes good anchorage to prevent channeling during negative pressure wound therapy.




We are also introducing PS-2188 which is a hydrophilic skin contact silicone gel adhesive that has been coated onto a beige nonwoven polyurethane carrier. PS-2188 was specifically designed to improve wear characteristics where flexibility and modest resistance to shear are desired, while still offering hydrophilic properties to enhance moisture management beneath the dressing.
