Vancive Medical Technologies

Adhesives and Material Technologies for Medical Applications

We bring more than three decades of expertise to the development of innovative adhesives and material technologies for medical applications. Our work addresses unmet needs of medical device manufacturers, clinicians and patients in segments including wound care, vascular access, surgical, ostomy, electromedical and wearable sensors.

Skin-friendly adhesive tapes, strips and films for surgical applications

We offer bordering, assembly and fenestration tapes, and OP strips that are compatible with various drape substrates, as well as incise film solutions. Our surgical portfolio leverages proprietary skin-friendly adhesive technologies, including Wetstick™, a patented medical synthetic rubber adhesive that maintains adhesion to wet skin.

BeneHold™ Absorbent Wound Dressing

The BeneHold™ Absorbent Wound Dressing portfolio of sterile wound dressings is indicated for management of lightly to moderately exuding chronic and acute wounds.

The dressings support moist wound healing and feature a self-adherent wound contact layer with a low-friction polyurethane top film that is water resistant and acts as a barrier to external contaminants and bacteria. There are four types of wound dressings in the portfolio, each offered in multiple sizes:

  • Thin absorbent wound dressing*
  • Standard hydrocolloid dressing
  • Bordered hydrocolloid dressing with odor control
  • Bordered sacral hydrocolloid dressing with odor control
    *Features TASA™ (Thin Absorbent Skin Adhesive™) technology

The highly integrated wound contact layer remains intact in the presence of wound exudates, minimizing wound bed disturbance. This also makes handling easier after dressing removal. The dressings also meet ISO 10993 biocompatibility requirements for use as a medical device and are formulated to be gentle to periwound skin.

Skin-friendly adhesives for wound care

Our chronic and acute wound care solutions feature patented skin-friendly adhesives that support optimal healing conditions and extended wear, including high-absorption hydrocolloids that remain integrated when applied to light to moderate exuding wounds. Our new Vancive thin absorbent skin adhesive unites high-performance adhesion and fluid management.

Adhesives and barrier film for ostomy applications

The Vancive portfolio of ostomy products includes adhesives and materials for multi-layer flanges, charcoal filter mounts and moldable rings. We leverage our proprietary hydrocolloid formulations to support optimal wear time and help maintain skin integrity.

Our new InteliShield™ barrier film for ostomy applications is PVC-, PVdC- and plasticizer-free and is as strong, quiet and soft as current products.

Conductive gel-resistant adhesives

Solutions offered through our electromedical portfolio include materials designed for mounting devices onto the skin that conform to most body surfaces, conductive gel-resistant adhesives that are gentle to the skin and clean on removal, and products that are printable and made for easy conversion.
