3M’s Introduces Longer Wear Hi-Tack Silicone Adhesive Tapes

By John F. Heerdink, Jr.

Reportedly, 3M (MMM) has launched the next generation of silicone adhesives, 3M™ Hi-Tack Silicone Adhesive Tapes, the first of its class the 2480 3M™ Single Coated Medical Nonwoven Tape with Hi-Tack Silicone Adhesive on Liner, offers longer wear, supports heavier devices, and offers more secure adhesion, along with all the traditional benefits of 3M’s base silicone adhesive portfolio.

The adhesives currently available in the market require device engineers to opt between strength, wear duration, or comfort and pliability. But the new adhesive launch is flexible, repositionable, and extremely conformable to work well with various medical devices, including continuous glucose monitoring systems, wearable monitors, sleep and incontinence devices.

“Medical devices are essential, and engineers need confidence their adhesive is strong enough to secure a heavier device for longer duration without causing trauma to the patient’s skin upon removal,”  “We leveraged 3M’s 55+ years of skin adhesive know-how to push the envelope of silicone adhesives and create a new product that bridges this gap. 2480 3M Hi-Tack Silicone Adhesive is the first of its kind to offer the repositionable, gentle properties of silicone and achieve up to a four-day wear time, supporting heavier, more complex devices.” stated  Marcello Napol, Vice President of 3M Medical Device Solutions.

The new adhesive launch is part of a larger portfolio, with additional silicone adhesives to be launched in 2021.
