We can provide the materials and adhesives expertise to meet unique application requirements with innovative solutions for design engineers focusing on wound care, ostomy appliances, surgical drapes, and any medical devices that stick to a patient’s skin.


With an extensive supplier network and in-depth adhesive expertise for medical device and equipment applications, EIS provides:

  • Electrical insulation materials for medical electronics applications

  • EMI/EMC shielding
  • Bonding and sealing components in equipment panels, handheld monitors, and LCDs
  • Attaching components for membrane switches, control consoles, pendants, foot switches, and remote controls
  • Bonding subassemblies and sealing connections


As medical devices and equipment become smaller and more complex, our materials and adhesives expertise is applicable in a variety of diagnostic equipment such as:

  • Ultrasound equipment
  • Mammography systems
  • CT scanners
  • MRI scanners
  • Bone densitometers
  • PET/CT scanners
  • X-ray equipment

  • Blood monitoring equipment
  • Endoscopes and laparoscopes

Medical devices use liquid and thin bonding tape systems to attach and seal components against moisture, heat, cleaning solutions, corrosive fluids, and repeated sterilization.
