A selection of medical/skin adhesives were coated onto substrates and physical properties (Shear, Adhesion to Release, 180° Peel and MVTR) tested before and after exposure to e-beam sterilization of 27 and 40 kGy. Of the four adhesives tested, two displayed a much lower effect from e-beam exposure than the others.
Second Evaluation of the Wear Duration of Acrylic Wearable Device Adhesives on Healthy Human Volunteers
Healthy Human wear studies were performed using different formulations of acrylic adhesives on substrates (nonwoven polyester, LDPE film, PU film and PU foam) to evaluate the wear durations of the different combinations. Differences in wear durations were seen depending on the identity of the adhesive and the substrate. When comparing adhesives, no variability in wear duration was attributable to the age or gender of the participants, nor on the amount of bathing or sweating.
