Low-Surface Energy Adhesives

ARcare® medical grade, low-surface energy (LSE) pressure-sensitive adhesives bond difficult substrates such as TPE (thermoplastic elastomers) without the need for a secondary curing or treatment steps for increased manufacturing ease and efficiency. LSE adhesives optimize our customers’ manufacturing processes and lower device unit costs.

Benefits of this technology:

  • Repositionable for ease of assembly
  • Tailorable adhesion, including immediate and permanent or removable bonds, for wide array of substrates
  • Can be provided in transfer, single-coated or as a double-coated tape configuration with a skin-friendly adhesive on the opposite side
  • Available in acrylic, hybrid and silicone chemistries
  • Conformable, biocompatible and non-cytotoxic
  • Chemically clean, ultra-low residual volatiles

Applications:

  • Patch pumps
  • Infusion pumps
  • Diagnostic device bonding
  • General device bonding
