Designed to laminate many substrates, 3M medical transfer adhesive 4075 features an extended-wear pressure sensitive-transfer adhesive and allows design engineers to use a variety of backings. The new adhesive also offers up to a 14-day wear time, depending on the backing material used.
“We are excited to broaden our extended-wear family with a product that provides customers greater design flexibility by letting them select a wide variety of backings,” said 3M Medical Solutions division VP Marcello Napol in a prepared statement. “Offering design engineers more patient-friendly adhesive options that provide comfort and a strong, reliable bond is a key part of our mission.”
The company’s 4075 medical transfer adhesive meets requirements to use on intact skin, according to 3M. It has been tested to ISO:10993-5 and ISO:10993-10, which assess in-vitro cytotoxicity and a product’s potential to produce irritation and skin sensitization, respectively. It is also compatible with ethylene oxide sterilization.
