Aim: The aim of this study is to evaluate and improve the adhesion strength of the silicone-based skin adhesive for the appropriate functioning time.

Method: Two groups of samples were prepared, six samples per group, and a human surrogate skin samples were used made from cross-linked polyamide polymer resembling the stratum corneum layer of the human skin. A 180 degree peel test was performed to measure the adhesion strength.

Results and conclusion: The results showed that there was a statistically significant different in the amount of adhesion strength between the two groups which confirmed that the stone-wool fiber addition had increased the adhesion strength of the silicone-based skin adhesive.
