3M medical materials and technologies business has developed a new acrylic-based nonwoven tape named 4076 extended wear medical tape, that offers long-term wear on skin, enabling engineers to solve tough medical device design challenges. 3M is a global innovation company based in the US that develops structural and advanced medical adhesives.

The medical tape has given medical device manufacturers and engineers a long-term wear, acrylic-based adhesive solution designed to increase patient comfort, and provide a strong and reliable bond in challenging applications.

The non-sensitising, conformable adhesive was developed for long-term wear, providing a bond that is firm yet comfortable so patients may not even realise they are wearing a device. This allows engineers and manufacturers to focus solely on their device’s design and application, spurring innovation while ensuring their timeline and budget requirements are met.

Compliant with ISO:10993 and ISO:10993-10, medical industry regulations assessing a product’s potential to produce irritation and skin sensitisation, 4076 extended wear medical tape is approved for use on intact skin. The tape is part of the extensive adhesives product line 3M offers the medical device manufacturing, design, and supply industries. Through the company’s diversity of technologies – paired with its 55 years of experience in the medical adhesive business and team of experts, 3M provides medical device professionals with the tools they need to satisfy their project requirements and confidently navigate their way to market.

Diana Eitzman, Ph.D., director of agile commercialisation, 3M critical and chronic care solutions division said, “Sticking to skin presents a major challenge to the medical device industry. By equipping our customers with the latest adhesive technology, we’re giving them the power to solve their toughest design challenges and positively impact patients’ lives globally.” (GK)
