What are skin tapes and patches?
Skin tape and patches are adhesive-backed components that are used when a medical device or wearable product is applied directly to the skin of the user. Since skin is a complex, sensitive surface and due to the delicate nature of the application, this task is easier said than done.
At Tapecon, we work closely with your team to recommend adhesives and materials to maximize your product’s reliability, performance, and safety. With a wide variety of printing and converting capabilities at our disposal, we can customize skin tapes and patches to your precise needs. The bottom line: if your product needs to stick to skin, we have you covered.
