New 3M silicone adhesive helps improve medical devices intended for people with fragile skin

3M has 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.

As the number of people with chronic diseases and the size of the aging population continue to grow, medical device design engineers need adhesive solutions that are both gentle and secure to help support device compliance by end users.

The 2484 3M Hi-Tack Silicone Adhesive is breathable, conformable, enables up to a seven-day wear time and minimizes skin cell removal, making it the ideal candidate for applications on fragile skin.

This is the second product to join the 3M Hi-Tack Silicone Adhesive Portfolio, with 2480 3M Hi-Tack Silicone Adhesive, in a matter of months.

The 2484 3M Hi-Tack Silicone Adhesive is ethylene oxide (EtO) sterilization compatible and compliant with ISO 10993 parts 5 & 10.

3M's Hi-Tack Silicone Adhesive Portfolio currently includes the 2480 3M Hi-Tack Silicone Adhesive, released at the end of last year, and 2484 3M Hi-Tack Silicone Adhesive.
