Hydrogel Adhesives Improve Medical Performance

Andy Extance – Jun 27, 2012

Medical adhesives are well known enough to take leading parts in films, but in some roles they still get poor reviews. Conventional tissue sealants and PSAs both have their shortcomings. But not only can hydrogel adhesives produce bandages and patches that are less painful to remove and leave less residue, they can also improve tissue sealant performance. But the chemistry used in the different contexts can be very different, and the oxidised polysaccharide/multiarm polyamine technology used in tissue sealants is still relatively young. However, recent research has shown how additives can be used to tailor their performance.
