Smart applications for adult care

Elastic attachment. For living life to the fullest, smart adhesives help your products stand up to the action. Uniquely formulated to give you strong shear and stress with whatever substrates and processes you choose to use. That means it is the only adhesive you need for all your elastic bonding applications.

Construction. Smart enough to create a strong bond even between dissimilar substrates. Adaptable enough to provide the performance you need regardless of line speed or product design. And don’t forget the benefits of less blocking, no bleed through and reduced odour.

Stretch. Stretch again, again, again... keeps performing and keeps its shape. Smart and flexible in every sense. Smart enough to enable your product to discretely maintain its shape and keep your customers dry and comfortable. Flexible enabling the use of a wider variety and softer materials.

Wetness indicator. Enable caregivers to know exactly when it is time to make a change. Smart indicators help your products keep skin dry and healthy by reliably and clearly changing colour. Colour change reliability remains consistent regardless of temperature swings and even harsh shipping and storage environments.
