3M has introduced a non-woven, elastic blend tape that may offer medical device wearers some relief from annoying problems such as losing its stickiness and skin irritation.
The company says the single-coated tape, called 3M 4077, is water resistant, offers improved stretchiness and air penetration, and can be worn for up to 14 days. It combines adhesive with a white meltblown elastic nonwoven backing on a silicone release liner. It is compatible with ethylene oxide sterilization, electron beams and gamma sterilization.
These featured panels at DeviceTalks Boston will explore the state of R&D at major medtech firms, as well as the latest trends when it comes to developing combination products, neuromodulation devices, robotic systems and women's health technology.
