BeneHold™ CHG Antimicrobial Adhesive Technology

The skin is home to trillions of bacteria, which are mostly harmless until introduced inside the body where they can cause infection.  Scientists at Avery Dennison Medical have developed the BeneHold™ CHG antimicrobial adhesive to help with this problem. Chlorhexidine Gluconate (CHG) was chosen because it is a well-documented broad-spectrum antiseptic already widely used in many medical products to minimize microbial growth, including coated central venous catheters, skin antiseptics and IV site dressings.

BeneHold™ CHG adhesive technology by Avery Dennison Medical delivers the functionality of this antimicrobial agent in a thin acrylic adhesive layer that can be customized for various applications and performance requirements. We focus on adding antimicrobial properties to the primary skin contact layer; therefore eliminating the need for an additional component that holds and delivers the antimicrobial agent. In addition, BeneHold™ CHG adhesive technology when coupled with a transparent carrier film allows the contact layer to remain transparent and thin, making it easy to observe the site without disturbing it and offering added comfort. This novel adhesive technology is the subject of  several granted patents globally and a number of pending applications. 

Features and Benefits
BeneHold™ CHG adhesive technology is a unique proprietary acrylic-based adhesive with the following important properties:
  1. In vitro testing demonstrated that BeneHold™ CHG has an antimicrobial effect against a variety of gram-negative and gram-positive bacteria and yeast.1
  2. The absorptive properties of BeneHold™ CHG manage fluids such as blood, perspiration and other exudates providing a moist environment ideal for wound healing.
  3. When BeneHold™ CHG is applied to a breathable carrier,  absorbed fluid is released through the film by vapor exchange for additional fluid handling capacity.
  4. The BeneHold™ CHG adhesive remains transparent throughout use and when coupled with a transparent carrier film it allows for continuous visual monitoring of site conditions.
  5. The CHG adhesive has been found to be non-cytotoxic and safe to use.
How does CHG work?
CHG (Chlorhexidine Gluconate) is highly soluble; and in physiologic conditions it readily dissociates to release catonic chlorhexidine molecules into solution. 

CHG molecules, that are positively charged, strongly bind to negatively charged bacterial cell walls. This damages the bacteria’s surface structure leading to an osmotic imbalance. The consequent precipitation of cytoplasm causes cell death.2

Gentle and Repositionable Acrylic Adhesive

Introducing a repositionable skin-contact adhesive with unique 24-hour “soft release” technology

Enhanced comfort, wearability, and repositionability during the first 24 hours of wear without sacrificing adhesion—from a leader in materials science.

Avery Dennison Medical has taken two opposing forces, strength and gentleness, and combined them into a new acrylic adhesive technology that redefines the parameters of adhesion. The Gentle PSA was created for skin-contact applications that require flexibility and a gentler “soft release” at the onset of use without sacrificing static sheer. This unique performance mechanism—the ability to remove, reposition and replace—remains active for 24 hours. This opens the door to the development of a wide range of product-differentiating innovations.

Gentle PSA technology features and benefits
  • Delivers “soft release” from skin during first 24 hours of contact
  • Allows atraumatic repositioning or temporary removal
  • Static shear, MVTR and liner release of normal acrylic adhesive
  • EtO and gamma sterilizable
  • Adhesive can be coated on a wide array of carriers and designs
  • 2-year shelf-life when stored in original packaging at 23° C/73 F°, 50% relative humidity, out of sunlight
Create Novel and Next-Gen Solutions with Our Gentle Pressure Sensitive Adhesive Technology
An adhesive that delivers 24 hours of secure, gentle, repositionable strength. Imagine the possibilities.

Partner with us to develop unique products with Gentle Pressure Sensitive Adhesive technology.
Bring us your ideas and let’s explore the possibilities of this exciting new adhesive option.

Avery Dennison Partners with Global Safety First, LLC to Produce and Exclusively Distribute N95 Masks for Healthcare Professionals

Innovative Mask Design Is Gentler on the Skin and Easier to Use

MENTOR, OHIO — May 11, 2020 — Avery Dennison (NYSE:AVY) announced today that it has entered into an agreement with Global Safety First, LLC, (GSF), to produce and distribute a self-adhesive, NIOSH-Certified N95 mask as part of the company’s efforts to provide innovative personal protective equipment (PPE) in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The N95 mask is a standard of safety in the healthcare setting and vitally important to protecting healthcare workers and patients. GSF’s ReadiMask® Self-Adhesive NIOSH-Certified N95 face masks are made with electrostatic particle filtration properties that make them more breathable. They adhere gently to the face with double-coated skin-friendly adhesive, and are available for use in healthcare settings as a COVID-19 countermeasure.

The ReadiMask is unique because it can form an air-tight seal providing maximum protection while allowing filtration during inhalation and exhalation. The mask is virtually weightless, convenient and easy to use. The design eliminates tight straps or ties that put pressure on the face or get caught in hair. Additionally, ReadiMask has no uncomfortable metal nose clip that can cause skin bruising. The ReadiMask was designed with a very low breathing resistance and may provide a cooler temperature than other similar masks. 

“Our partnership with Global Safety First allows us to bring some much needed safety and comfort to frontline healthcare workers who rely on N95 masks every day for protection. GSF’s unique design, along with our medical manufacturing capabilities and expertise in skin contact adhesives, is helping to bring mask innovation to the healthcare market at a time when it is sorely needed,” said Kirsten Newquist, vice president and general manager, Avery Dennison Medical. 

“Healthcare providers will be required to use increased amounts of PPE for some time to come as a result of this pandemic, and it’s critical that industry responds quickly—not only with increased supply, but with products and equipment that make it easier for healthcare professionals to do their jobs,” said John Schwind, president, Global Safety First, LLC. “We are pleased to partner with Avery Dennison to meet this need.”

Production of these U.S. made, self-adhesive masks will begin shortly at Avery Dennison’s Mentor, Ohio facility pending NIOSH approval, with first shipments anticipated in June. The facility is FDA registered, ISO 13485 and MDSAP compliant. The masks will be available for purchase by hospitals, nursing homes, and other healthcare facilities as well as group purchasing organizations and distributors nationwide exclusively through Avery Dennison Medical.

Avery Dennison Medical is actively developing other types of PPE in response to COVID-19. Earlier, the company announced development of a new low-cost disposable plastic face shield. Organizations with a need for these and other PPE can contact us by visiting medical.averydennison.com/en/home/covid19.html.
