3M Launches New Silicone Adhesive

By John F. Heerdink, Jr.

Reportedly, 3M (MMM) announced its latest addition to a new class of silicone adhesives that balances strength, flexibility, and comfort, the 2484 3M™ Single Coated Medical Film Tape with Hi-Tack Silicone Adhesive on Liner. The adhesive is breathable, comfortable, and enables up to a seven-day wear time, and minimizes skin cell removal, making it the ideal candidate for applications on fragile skin.

“In medical device design, patient safety is of the utmost importance, which is why we continue to focus on silicone adhesives and our Hi-Tack Silicone Adhesive Portfolio. Designing devices for people with more fragile skin, such as those with chronic diseases or on the opposite ends of the age spectrum, can be challenging; yet they can be the populations most in need of reliable wearable devices,” , “The 2484 3M Hi-Tack Silicone Adhesive is gentle even on delicate skin, providing design engineers an adhesive that meets the needs of both the latest in medical device design and the people who wear them. By using 3M’s 55+ years of skin adhesive experience, we help design engineers create dependable, feature-rich devices. 2484 3M Hi-Tack Silicone Adhesive is the latest advancement in that effort.” stated Chad Reed, global business director of 3M Medical Device Solutions.

3M’s Hi-Tack Silicone Adhesive Portfolio is expected to expand and currently includes the 2480 3M Hi-Tack Silicone Adhesive, which was released at the end of last year, and 2484 3M Hi-Tack Silicone Adhesive.
