ST PAUL, US: 3M Company said that it has added 3M 4076 extended wear medical tape to its extensive adhesives portfolio.

With this addition, 3M’s medical materials and technologies business has given medical device manufacturers and engineers a long-term wear, the acrylic-based adhesive solution designed to increase patient comfort and provide a strong and reliable bond in challenging applications.

The non-sensitizing, conformable adhesive was developed for long-term wear, providing a bond that is firm yet comfortable so patients may not even realize 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 sensitization, 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.

“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,” said Diana Eitzman, PhD, director of agile commercialization, 3M critical and chronic care solutions division.
