Long-Term Wear Adhesives

ARcare® skin-friendly, long-term wear (LTW) adhesive technologies are formulated to promote healing or deliver therapies in applications requiring wear times up to seven days. This adhesive is well-suited for extended wear times in dressings intended for difficult-to-adhere wound sites or skin-bonded devices.

Benefits of this technology:

  • Secure wear, minimal edge lift (7 days and beyond)
  • Minimal pain upon removal (Wong Baker <3)
  • Tailorable wear times
  • Limited adhesive & dressing creep
  • Residue-free removal
  • Breathable (MVTR of 1,000 g/m2/day on PU film)
  • Retains adhesive properties at 25 kGy (Gamma)
  • Biocompatible per ISO 10993


  • Wound care dressing
  • Skin-bonded monitoring devices (wearable sensors)
  • Drug or therapeutic delivery systems (infusion pumps)
  • Transdermal patches
