MED 5734

Double-Coated Nonwoven with Gentle Adhesive

MED 5734 is a double-coated, white nylon nonwoven with a gentle acrylic adhesive designed to adhere to the skin, with the acrylic side adhesive with good initial tack and adhesion that is suitable for a wide variety of materials. The softness, conformability, and the repositionability of the adhesive offers a high degree of user comfort.

Typical Application

MED 5734 was created for skin-contact applications that require flexibility and a gentler “soft” release at the onset of use without sacrificing static sheer. This unique performance mechanism—the ability to remove, reposition and replace—remains active for 48 hours before reverting to traditional acrylic adhesion.

Performance Statement:

Wear time based on internal studies should be used only as a guide; results may vary and may be influenced by environmental, use, device design and user attributes. It is recommended that customers conduct their own studies using their specific device design to determine accurate wear times.
