Specification: - cytotoxicity of eluates appropriate DIN EN ISO 10993-5,1999-11, biological assessment of medical devices, - Primary Skin Irritation Test DIN EN ISO-10993-10.

iF GOLD STATEMENT

This product deserves an iF gold award because it appears to be and behave like a regular adhesive but, due to its special, innovative surface characteristics, it can be removed without leaving any residue. The material can not only be used on smooth but also on rough surfaces and even on skin, resulting in a wide range of potential applications, also in the medical field. Simply fantastic.
