Mactac Unveils Response™, a 100% Solids Coated Acrylic Adhesive for Medical Applications

Published on 2015-08-12. Author : SpecialChem

STOW, Ohio -- In the diagnostic medical device manufacturing business, precision is everything. Recognizing this, Mactac® Medical Products has developed Response™, a 100 percent solids acrylic adhesive system that delivers the same adhesion performance found with traditional solvent-coated acrylic pressure-sensitive adhesives (PSAs), but without any outgassing or migration. While useful in a wide variety of general medical applications, Response products are formulated specifically to meet the strictest demands of the in-vitro diagnostic equipment industry.

“We created Response to be the cleanest, most inert medical adhesive product line on the market, recognizing that the slightest chemical migration can interfere with diagnostic assays,” explained Steve Schroff, business development marketing manager for Mactac. “Our 100 percent solids coating technology is perfect for this application, providing the performance necessary at an unmatched price point.”

The Response family of products is ideal for lateral flow (such as pregnancy testing), microfluidic (such as diabetic testing), titer plate covers, urinalysis sticks, microarray, protein chain replication (PCR) and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) applications. Besides being non-migratory and non-outgassing, the adhesive is also non-fluorescing, repositionable, designed to seal well and can be exposed to a wide temperature range. There are several standard products available in the Response line, and custom-coated products—including free film, single-coated and double-coated constructions—are available.
