Scapa Healthcare Introduces a Second-Generation Hydrocolloid Adhesive

21 Mar, 2019

Scapa Healthcare, a leading strategic outsource partner of skin friendly turn-key solutions, announces the availability of Scapa Soft-Pro® Hydrocolloid Gen II, a proprietary breathable, absorbent and repositionable adhesive for ostomy and medical device fixation, advanced wound care and first aid applications.

Due to the acrylic chemistry of Hydrocolloid Gen II the adhesive is highly breathable, helping the device to stay on the skin for several days. The technology also offers high absorption properties which make it ideal for ostomy, wound care and consumer applications where the adhesive comes in contact with fluids. The technology is suitable for users with sensitive skin as the formulation is made of non-animal derived ingredients, colophony and is latex-free.

Scapa Soft-Pro® Hydrocolloid Gen II can be removed and reapplied multiple times without losing adhesion properties. This feature makes it possible to be used on sensitive skin without causing further damage. Due to the adhesive coat weight, the technology is highly conformable and can be used in challenging anatomical areas including skin folds, elbows, knees and ankles. 

“Scapa Healthcare continues to innovate its portfolio of skin friendly solutions to address unmet customer needs,” said Nohora Cardenas, Director Strategic Marketing, Scapa Healthcare. “Hydrocolloid adhesives continue to be a highly recommended technology for advanced wound care, ostomy and fixation applications. Scapa Soft-Pro® Hydrocolloid Gen II provides unique features not offered by traditional hydrocolloids and we are excited to deliver this differentiating technology to our customers.”
