Scapa Healthcare Introduces Low Trauma Hydrocolloid Adhesive for Sensitive Skin Applications
29 Jan, 2018
Windsor, CT – January 29, 2018 – Scapa Healthcare, a leading strategic outsource partner of skin friendly turn-key solutions, today announced the availability of Scapa Soft-Pro® Low Trauma Hydrocolloid, a proprietary, gentle adhesive with repositionable properties for sensitive skin applications. This latest addition to the extensive Scapa Soft-Pro® portfolio of skin contact adhesives is suitable for medical device fixation, advanced wound care and consumer wellness applications for those with fragile skin. It is ideal for a full spectrum of users ranging from pediatric and neonatal to geriatric populations.
Scapa’s Soft-Pro® Low Trauma Hydrocolloid utilizes a unique formulation that flows with the skin to prevent discomfort and damage, while remaining securely fixed. It is biocompatible, latex free and gamma stable. The adhesive is both breathable and absorbent, allowing it to manage normal skin perspiration for multi-day wear times. The low trauma hydrocolloid can be gently lifted and reapplied without pulling body hair, leaves little to no residue, and is easily repositionable while maintaining strong securement on the skin.
“As a leader in skin friendly adhesive solutions, we continually strive to develop innovative products that provide superior functionality to meet end-user needs,” said Michael Muchin, Scapa Healthcare’s VP of Product Development. “We understand the complexities of the skin as it changes with age. Scapa Soft-Pro® Low Trauma Hydrocolloid is the optimal choice for users with fragile skin – such as newborns and the elderly – that require a repositionable adhesive with secure fixation capabilities.”
Scapa Healthcare will be exhibiting its comprehensive product portfolios and end-to-end services and capabilities for complete, innovative adhesive solutions in booth 3291 at MD&M West.
