Everything You Need to Know About Die Cut Adhesives

By Scott Chambers on Jun 28, 2022 2:56:35 PM

You may have heard the term in manufacturing before, but let’s define it: What is die cutting?

You’ve got a part that needs to be bonded, masked, protected, etc., so you must add adhesive, films, foams, or soft metals to your assembly. The raw material must be cut into a particular shape to generate a finished product. However, nobody has the time to sit around and fiddle with a pair of scissors. So, what’s the solution?

6 Factors that Impact Transdermal Patch Delivery Systems

By Scott Chambers on Jan 27, 2022 8:00:00 AM

Transdermal patches are a modern medical marvel. They provide a convenient way to deliver medicine to people consistently and efficiently with little disruption to their routines, and in a small package to boot! Depending on the patch, a person might be able to stick it on to start the week and leave it there for several days, which is far more convenient than starting the morning by popping a few pills.

Still, a lot goes into making sure the drug contained within the patch gets administered to the patient as prescribed. If the patch isn’t designed and constructed to medicate the patient properly via the skin, it’s a bust — if not dangerous. Let’s look at 6 factors that impact transdermal patch delivery systems.

Vital Aspects of Manufacturing Wound Dressing Tape

By Scott Chambers on Jan 19, 2022 7:45:00 AM

Remember skinning your knee when you were a kid? As inexplicable as it was that you didn’t pull off that amazing move on your bicycle that you’d been practicing all day, it was nice to have something available to help you heal. If a standard bandage wasn’t up to the task, you may have relied on some gauze and wound dressing tape to do the trick.

In addition to being found in homes, medical professionals also count on it for much more severe concerns in doctors’ offices and hospitals worldwide. With wound dressings, you have the adhesive, backing, and gauze (if needed) that must all work together to protect and assist with the healing of injuries, surgical incisions, and more.
