EWMA 2018: Avantor® to Highlight NuSil™ Brand Silicone Adhesives for Medical Applications

Center Valley, PA (USA) – April 20, 2018 – Avantor® is exhibiting at the European Wound Management Association (EWMA) 2018 Conference May 9-11 in Krakow, Poland, where the company will highlight its NuSil™ brand biocompatible Soft Silicone Adhesives (SSA) for medical applications.

Company experts will be available in Stand W614.

NuSil™ brand Soft Silicone Adhesives provide permeability, protection and atraumatic removal from the skin.

Part of the Premium Care line designed for medical device applications, NuSilTM SSAs are available in off-the-shelf or custom formulations that can be tuned to meet specific physical and processing properties. The NuSil™ brand has a proven history of tailoring silicones for nearly four decades. Their team of chemists and engineers can modify key attributes, such as cure profile, viscosity, adhesion properties and more, to match device production and medical application requirements.

NuSil™ SSAs are ideal for wound care, scar management, wearable monitoring devices and medical tape due to their permeability, protection and atraumatic removal from the skin. SSAs are also non-irritating to the skin, which enables them to be used for extended periods of time. In addition, SSAs offer superior breathability, which aids in wound healing and has been shown to help reduce the profile and redness of a scar.

When seeking a solution that gently detaches from the skin, manufacturers often choose NuSil™ SSAs over other adhesive chemistries. They are solvent-free, which alleviates the need for post-production documentation and validation of solvent removal.

“In medical device development, we know that standard solutions don’t always fit, and each device can require unique silicone properties,” said Corey Walker, executive vice president, Biomaterials and Advanced Technologies. “With our Soft Silicone Adhesives product offering, we collaborate with customers to create customized materials to meet their unique application and process needs. And we’ve honed our processes and proprietary equipment to take customization to a mass scale.”
