Polyethylene and Polypropylene Film Tapes

Polyethylene films are essential medical adhesive products used in various custom applications. The thin film is lightweight while providing an impermeable barrier against body fluids and bacteria. Additionally, their strong adhesion enables them to remain securely in place while allowing the potential for pain-free removal with no residue remaining or risk of tearing the skin.

Polyethylene films are superior for bandage coverings compared to traditional cotton gauze and other adhesive products due to their durability and security of application on any wound or affected area. Depending on the patient’s specific needs or situation, different grades of polyethylene films are available for specific medical applications.

For example, some use a low adhesive tack material to reduce the risk of skin irritation, whereas others may require a stronger grade with higher adhesive capabilities. Whatever the case may be, there is sure to be a polyethylene film suitable for that purpose.

DermaMed’s polyethylene film tapes can be utilized for fluid-resistance or for attaching devices to the body. We offer both standard single-coated and double-coated polyethylene film tapes as well as custom solutions with a range of substrate thicknesses and finishes, bond strengths, release times and adhesive formulations. At DermaMed, we can develop specialty polyethylene film tapes to suit your specific needs. When off-the-shelf works for your application, DermaMed is your answer. When the application requires a more unique, custom approach, DermaMed’s team of chemists and technical experts is your solution.
