SoftWear™ skin adhesives remove gently to enhance patient comfort and minimize the risk of damage to skin upon removal. The family of SoftWear™ pressure-sensitive adhesives (PSAs) is available in non-silicone and silicone formulations from AR.

SoftWear™ adhesives release cleanly from hair and skin with virtually painless removal to deliver secure, intimate skin contact for wound care and body-worn device applications.
