3M™ Launches New Long-Term Wear Skin Contact Adhesive

Free content from JBC Technologies

From products that help prevent infection, hold an IV in place, attach electrodes, and a variety of other medical applications, 3M™ has been sticking things to skin for around 55 years. However, most of those products are only designed to hold anywhere from a few hours to a few days. Wearable medical devices such as continuous glucose monitors, drug delivery systems, and more require a new type of adhesive that can remain on the skin for an extended period of time. We recently spoke with Audrey Sherman, Division Scientist, 3M™ Medical Solutions Division and Del Lawson, Medical Materials & Technologies Laboratory Manager, 3M™ Medical Solutions Division to discuss the development of their new extended wear medical tape.
