Manufacturers of transparent dressings now have a number of choices when selecting high-quality adhesives systems thanks to MACtac Medical Products’ recently expanded product portfolio of conformable transparent films featuring three levels of breathability.

MACtac Medical Products’ adhesive systems are produced under strict process controls for industry standard-setting quality. Converters can rely on MACtac Medical Products for superior performing adhesive systems that are tested according to ISO 10993-5/-10 standards for cytotoxicity, skin irritation and skin sensitization.

MACtac’s new transparent dressing adhesive systems incorporate a variety of product constructions including polyester and polyethylene casting sheets to accommodate different converting methods and dressing styles. Ideal for wound dressings and catheter/IV securement, MACtac’s adhesive offerings for transparent dressings have a great affinity for skin yet remove cleanly with no residue. In addition, they offer high breathability and good oxygen and moisture vapor exchange to keep a chronic wound moist to accelerate healing. And, with excellent waterproof characteristics, the systems are impermeable to liquids, bacteria and viruses.

The company’s full line of pressure-sensitive adhesives, and keen understanding of skin adhesion and advancements in adhesives technology have made it possible for OEMs to improve the quality of their product offerings across a wide range of product types, while expediting time to market.

“MACtac has become the name to trust in the medical adhesive industry, not only because we have 25 years of experience producing top quality adhesive products, but because our products have consistently performed at and above the expectations of our customers,” said Aaron Smith, MACtac Medical Products. “Pairing high quality with competitive pricing, OEMs and converters can rely on MACtac to provide them with a family of products that allows them to incorporate new technology into their product lines with perfect peace of mind.”
