Medical infusion bandage is one common medical dressing that is used in transfusion, which is mainly used to fix the needle and pipes for transfusion. Meanwhile, the infusion bandage can protect the puncture area.
Infusion bandage is composed of adhesive tape, absorbent pad and isolating membrane. The adhesive tape is made of non-woven fabric, PVC, PE or PU films coated with medical adhesives. The bonding strength of this adhesive tape directly influence the performance of infusion bandage. To be specific, if the bonding strength of the adhesive tape is too low, the infusion bandage will be unable to fix the needle and pipes properly during the transfusion process. On the other hand, if the bonding strength of adhesive tape is too high, it may be very difficult to remove the infusion bandage after transfusion, which may also cause hurt to the patients. Therefore, it is necessary to test the bonding strength of infusion bandage before use. The boding strength of the infusion bandage can be measured by testing its peel strength.
This article provides a simplified test method of peel strength of infusion bandage for your reference. The test specimens are medical infusion bandages provided by one manufacturer and the testing instrument is Link Testing’s LTS-05 Auto Tensile Tester.
