Adhesion strength of silicone-based skin adhesive combined with stone-wool fibers


Aim: The aim of this study is to evaluate and improve the adhesion strength of thesilicone-based skin adhesive for the appropriate functioning time.Method: Two groups of samples were prepared, six samples per group, and a humansurrogate skin samples were used made from cross-linked polyamide polymerresembling the stratum corneum layer of the human skin. A 180 degree peel testwas performed to measure the adhesion strength.Results and conclusion: The results showed that there was a statistically significantdifferent in the amount of adhesion strength between the two groups whichconfirmed that the stone-wool fiber addition had increased the adhesion strengthof the silicone-based skin adhesive.
