AR’s proprietary ARflow® adhesive technologies reduce the surface tension of aqueous fluids (water, urine or blood), allowing for rapid flow from the inlet area to a remote reagent site within diagnostic and microfluidic devices.  

AR’s ARflow® hydrophilic surface technologies are available as pressure-sensitive adhesives (PSAs), heat-seals and coatings.

Benefits:

  • Fast and stable capillary fills
  • Proven compatibility with biosensors
  • Non-interfering with test results
  • Visible clarity for verification of fluid movement
  • PSAs and heat seals demonstrates strong bonding to plastics
  • Coatings bond easily to PSA spacer tapes
  • Tailorable hydrophilic properties to regulate capillary fill time
  • Customizable product construction including thickness, choice of substrate and release liner
  • Printable lid stock
  • Clean die-cuts improve manufacturing efficiencies and capillary performance
