GERGONNE has been developing and investing massively in the medical field for several years now.
The acquisition of our subsidiary LABORATOIRES COLUXIA in 2011, which manufactures medical devices, has enabled us to strengthen our knowledge in the field of medical adhesive tapes and to make the health market a sector in its own right for our company.
We control the sourcing of materials that meet the requirements of the sector as well as the formulation of acrylic materials to stick to the skin. We have the ability to improve the level of adhesion to the skin by choosing from our range of medical formulas whose properties we control.
All our medical formulas meet biocompatibility requirements:
- Primary skin irritation (ISO 10993-10)
- Sensitivisation (ISO 10993-10)
- Cytoxicity (ISO 10993-5)
Our know-how is not limited to the manufacture of medical adhesive tapes (single-sided adhesive tapes, double-sided adhesive tapes, medical non-woven adhesive tapes etc.). We are also specialists in the manufacture of highly water vapour-permeable medical polyurethane films used in the manufacture of medical devices. These films can be delivered alone or coated with a medical adhesive mass.Our standard product range
In addition to the development possibilities of specific materials, GERGONNE INDUSTRIE also has a range of standard products dedicated to medical applications.
These products are grouped within the ADHECARE range.
