Thin Absorbent Skin AdhesiveThe Vancive Thin Absorbent Skin Adhesive (TASA) platform utilizes a proprietary formulation that has adhesion properties and a moisture vapor transmission rate comparable to traditional acrylic adhesives, while delivering superior fluid handling capacities (FHC) that support extended wear time. The fluid handling characteristics prevent moisture build-up to minimize skin maceration. Vancive will expand this platform into the stomacare market in the first quarter of 2013 with a soft non-woven backed product that enhances the comfort, flexibility of ostomy bag flanges while reducing the profile significantly. According to Colleen Ward, vice president global marketing, the unique needs of Vancive customers are at the heart of each product. “Our exhibit reflects Vancive’s commitment to supporting medical device manufacturers and end users with technologies that help people be more connected with and conscious about healthcare.
