Abstract

Within the field of advanced wound care, silicone adhesives are currently the preferred, state of the art adhesive system due to their gentle skin adhesion properties¹. Silicone adhesives possess excellent oxygen permeability 2 but poor water transmission due to their inherent hydrophobicity. Here, we present a novel glycerol silicone 3 hybrid adhesive with improved fluid handling due to the incorporation of emulsified glycerol; improved permeability through the silicone layer due to the presence of glycerol; maintained adhesion during perspiration, as a results of improved fluid handling and permeability . Additionally, the adhesive performance is proved not compromised by the incorporation of glycerol.
