When Patches, Bandages, Tapes and Wound Healings are investigated with regard to their adhesiveness
The determination of the adhesive properties is an important parameter for manufacturers of patches, tapes, transdermal systems etc. Even though the measurement itself is described in a DIN Norm (DIN EN 1939), the method described does only allow very limited conclusion for adhesive properties on skin. This is due to the fact that within the DIN method the products are not applied on skin but on metal.
With the method ‘Adhesive Forces on Skin’ we offer a an in-vivo method on human skin. The products are applied to specific areas on the back of the volunteer and then instrumentally removed while documenting the force needed for removal. Afterwards the water content in the skin will be determined.
