Double-Coated Film

MED 6371U is a double-coated, thin, transparent polyester film with a different adhesive on either side. On the unwind side, the patented moisture resistant WetStick™ adhesive provides high initial tack and high adhesion to the skin and to hydrophobic fabrics, even when exposed to moisture. On the liner side is a solventless acrylic adhesive, designed to adhere to polyethylene films..

Typical Application

Designed for self-adhesive edges for surgical drapes while adhering to both the skin and hydrophobic fabrics, as well as, mounting of medical devices to the skin where moist conditions may exist.
