Scapa Healthcare – maker of skin-friendly adhesives – will introduce its new ultra-flexible Scapa Soft-Pro Silicone Gel 6058 at the 2017 Medica Trade Fair, Nov. 13–16 in Düsseldorf, Germany.
The Silicone Gel 6058 is the most flexible silicone in Scapa’s product portfolio, according to the Windsor, Conn.–based company. It is conformable and contours to challenging anatomical areas. Its adhesion properties offer secure fixation, minimal discomfort upon removal and reposition ability.
The tri-laminate construction enables use in fixation devices for advanced wound care, sensitive skin applications and medical devices. Silicone Gel 6058 is available with standard coating or perforated at 2.8 mm or 1.6 mm.
“We’re excited to introduce our new silicone technology to complement our existing adhesive offerings,” Mike Muchin, Scapa’s VP of product development, said in a news release. “At Scapa Healthcare, we always look to stay on the leading edge of adhesive technology. Our new Scapa Soft-Pro Silicone Gel 6058 was developed with end-users in mind, and is ideal for sensitive skin applications, including for use on pediatric and geriatric patients.”
