MED 5718P

Single-Coated Nonwoven

MED 5718P is a single-coated white, stretchable, polyester nonwoven with a porous acrylic adhesive. This product’s unique construction creates a high MVTR, allowing air and moisture to pass freely through the breathable adhesive and nonwoven carrier, which can support extended wear and reduce the likelihood of skin maceration in some applications. The product’s stretchable nonwoven is also ideal for adhering to highly contoured areas of the body.

Typical Application

Designed for long-term wear applications such as wearable device, patient monitoring and specialized wound dressings.
