Fast-cure encapsulation materials protect circuit boards against particles, heat, and moisture for more reliable performance. LOCTITE® encapsulants enhance the durability of Bluetooth chips, RFID chips, sensors, antennas, and battery connections for a seamless flow of patient data.
Medical wearables have changed healthcare forever. For decades, Henkel adhesives and electronic materials have helped make leading-edge medical devices possible, improving wearability length, tracking, diagnostics, and treatment. Now, with an aging population, the shift from hospital care to remote home care will be even more pronounced. With our industry expertise in adhesive technologies—from medical-grade sensing materials to skin adhesives—we help caregivers improve their quality of care.
German athletes recently leveraged Henkel’s wearable technology to successfully track progress as they trained for and completed the Düsseldorf Marathon. It’s just one example of the growth of medical and consumer wearables—from health patches to glucose monitors to smart glasses.
- Medical electrodes and smart patches
- Glucose management
- Moisture sensors
- Skin bonding/pressure-sensitive adhesives
Henkel makes solutions for ECG, TENS, grounding, defibrillation electrodes, and more. We offer a wide range of solutions, including various printable inks for disposable electrical medical devices and assembly solutions for transmitters.
Insulin delivery devices play a vital role in maintaining stable blood sugar levels. Henkel solutions allow engineers to push the limits of form and function for everything from glucose and biomarker monitors to insulin pens.
Henkel’s printable moisture sensors are comfortable to wear and provide real-time updates. Electrically conductive inks made for items such as smart diapers and bed pads reduce costs by increasing throughput to support a growing geriatric population.
Our skin-friendly adhesives are designed to keep products in place under any conditions. Our designs work in various applications, such as long-term skin bonding and double-sided tie layers, and we deliver value with customized business solutions.
A solution for any setting. Flexible conductive glues, adhesives, and epoxies offer an alternative to lead-free solder for high-reliability applications such as the electrical connections found in diagnostic equipment and computed tomography (CT) scanners.
