Our film release liners and paper release liners are compatible with a wide variety of adhesives designed especially for skin contact and patient care.

Wound Care Medical Release Liner Applications

Bandage applications with medicines or skin approved adhesives require either paper release liners or filmic release liners. Fox River Associates’ release liners for medical markets are commonly used in wound dressings for operation recovery. Our release liners for medical markets are also used for burn recovery.

Electrode Medical Release Liner Applications

There are many different substrates used in electrodes. An example is an electrode using hydro colloidal gels or conductive gel using low density polyethylene (LDPE) filmic siliconized release liners as "cover" stock. Polycoated kraft (PCK) paper release liners are often used as a proper material to die cut into when manufacturing diverse types of electrodes. Finally, thick, formable polyester (PET) is the type of film release liner used for the manufacturing of electrodes having a "formed cup" to contain "dots" of hydrogel. PET release liners are found on grounding pad electrodes as well as nerve/muscle stimulation electrodes.
