Measuring Adhesive Force of Wound Dressings

Measuring Adhesive Force of Wound Dressings

DIN EN 1939 describes how the adhesive force of adhesive tapes is determined. To measure the adhesive force of wound dressings or other self-adhesive medical products, the specimen is pulled off a metal plate during the test. This can be performed at various angles. However, the forces measured in
this way are twenty times greater than those arising with the combination of skin and dressing! Manufacturers of adhesive products therefore test adhesive force on natural skin, in order also to be able to detect any sensation of pain by the patient, together with any skin irritation which may occur depending on the used adhesive component.
