Re: adhesive backed covering

Laura A Miller

Hi everyone. Thanks for the great suggestions. There were a few questions about the application. This is for an electrode cuff. I’m using a flexible plastic to hold the domes and I’d like to seal up the wires on the back from perspiration. I did seal up the wires with renew silicone to secure them (from sweat and strain) but I’d like an extra layer to protect from moisture in case that starts to separate from the wires and I also just want to make it look more finished. In the future I think the ideal solution would be to make something out of custom silicone to seal it all up and make it look nice but in the meantime I thought I’d see what options I had. Since the cuff flexes, the backing needs to be flexible and stretchy or it pulls away. Another idea that was shared was a sheet of duct tape.

Thanks for all the help!

Subject: adhesive backed covering

Hi all,
I have a project where I need to cover some parts to protect them. I need a covering that has some elastic stretch and is thin enough to wrap around the edges.
The best solution I found is the black sticky backed fabric distributed by Otto Bock with the 3M backing (part number 617S65).
However, I would prefer something that is waterproof/resistant and NOT fabric.
Does anyone know of a product that would meet these needs:
Water resistant
Thin enough to fold over edges
Sticky backed

Thanks for the help!
