Berry Plastics Group, Inc. (NYSE: BERY), a leading global manufacturer and marketer of value-added plastic packaging and engineered materials, today introduced 3546A single-coated woven tape. 3546A joins Berry’s extensive offering of woven, flexible film, and transfer adhesives used in the manufacture of pulse oximeters and other medical devices.
Featuring a 25 mil stretchable woven fabric backing and white rubber-based medical-grade adhesive, 3546A is designed with both OEM/Converters and patients in mind.
“A key design feature of 3546A is the easy-release liner that removes quickly for high speed converting operations as well as the woven backing that readily accepts ink for excellent print quality,” explained George Kontakos, Berry Plastics’ Director of Sales for Medical Tapes. “The newly designed tape also features a specially-formulated rubber adhesive that bonds well without lifting or flagging and also removes cleanly without causing skin trauma.”
In addition to the 3546A Woven Tape, Berry Plastics also recently developed and introduced 3426B Flexible Film Tape and 3426A Transfer Adhesive, which join the Company’s assortment of products for pulse oximetry and medical device assembly applications.“Berry Plastics Specialty Tapes Group has an extensive array of products designed specifically for pulse oximetry applications including several woven, flexible film, and transfer adhesives.
