DuPont Healthcare to present on medical device adhesives at EWMA 

DuPont Healthcare will participate in the EWMA 2020 virtual conference on November 18 and 19, 2020. In addition to sharing information on the newly launched DuPont™ Liveo™ brand, DuPont Healthcare team members will present technical posters on skin adhesive technology and substrate performance. 

Presentation title: A comparative in-vivo study to assess the performance characteristics of several silicone skin adhesives

Presenter: Alexis Bobenrieth, Liveo™ R&D medical device expert 

Overview: From gentle adhesion with silicone soft skin adhesives (SSAs) to device securement with silicone pressure sensitive adhesives (PSAs), silicone adhesives offer a diversity of wear performances for wound dressing, ostomy care applications and other skin-adhered medical devices. Learn more about how several different silicone skin adhesives compare in performance against more traditional adhesive systems.

Date: Wednesday, November 18, 2020

Time: 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. CET (4:30 to 11 a.m. EST)

 

Presentation title: A comparative in-vitro study to assess the performances of adhesive dressings made from silicone soft skin adhesives coated on thermoplastic polyester elastomeric substrate

Presenter: Audrey Wipret, DuPont technical service & development expert

Overview: In the design of skin-adhered medical devices, such as wound dressings, selection of the skin adhesive, as well as the substrate on which it is coated, can have a great influence on device wear performance. Learn more about the performance of different silicone-skin-adhesive-coated film dressings made from TPC-ET films or polyurethane film and how they compare.

Date: Wednesday, November 18, 2020

Time: 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. CET (4:30 to 11 a.m. EST)
