Identification of Adhesive Formulations Minimally Effected by E-Beam Sterilization


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.
