Need help finding the right adhesive for your product application but don’t know where to look? Next week 3M is launching its new online resource called Find My Adhesive at CES in Las Vegas.
“Adhering medical devices can be a difficult task. Using the wrong adhesive could result in unforeseen added costs and device development delays,” said Marcello Napol, global business director in 3M’s Critical and Chronic Care Solutions Division in a company press release. The interactive, intuitive and efficient tool can assist design engineers in an oftentimes unexpectedly challenging and critical part of the medical device design process.”
The free product selector tool asks a series of specific questions to generate a list of suitable medical adhesives for the project. The questions consider the purpose of the adhesive, required characteristics such as wear time and the intended user.
