Wound Closure & Dressings
The Tape Lab offers high end, low cost wound closure and wound dressing manufacturing solutions to our customers. We can provide a wide range of skin-friendly medical adhesive materials used for both short and long term wound care/ closure dressings that can be applied in a clinical setting or for consumers.
The Tape Lab partners with the leaders in the tape and film industry including 3M, Avery Medical, Dermamed and Berry Plastics. We can offer adhesives that are flexible, breathable and removable. Wound closure is typically seen as a “band aid” but can be so much larger and more protective than a typical “band aid”. At The Tape Lab we help companies design and manufacture small and large wound closure die cuts that meet the most stringent hospital standards.
At The Tape Lab we have the expertise, using the latest die cutting technologies for the intricate and tight tolerance die cutting and slitting that is required for wound care and wound closure applications. We have an ISO 8 Clean Room for manufacturing when a controlled manufacturing environment is needed and required. We offer sample rolls and die-cuts to support design and pre-production runs. Our flexibility and customer centric market approach allow medical product designers to test and change designs without incurring excessive costs and have long lead times during prototyping and ramp up. We can customize many solutions including island placement of absorption materials with a flange of adhesive to keep a wound dressing area clean.
