ST. PAUL, Minn.--(
)--3M announces a new portfolio of medical design products created to meet
the industry’s changing regulatory requirements. 3M Medical Assembly
Solutions give medical design professionals reliable tools for bonding,
fastening, attaching and identification. In addition to providing the
outstanding performance that users have come to expect from 3M products,
these solutions have also been tested and proven to be stable through
protocols for cleaning, disinfection and sterilization.

solutions give medical device OEMs a broad portfolio of
products—including adhesives, bonding tapes, adhesive transfer tapes,
reclosable fasteners, label materials, and more—that are able to
withstand the sterilization methods outlined by industry requirements.
With solutions engineered for a range of medical products, 3M is
bringing its expertise in health care, regulatory compliance and
manufacturing to the medical design community. The company’s global
presence and long track record as an innovative provider of adhesives
and components for health care manufacturers have already made it a
trusted partner to medical design companies around the world.
“We are proud to be industry leaders in aligning a portfolio to meet
these requirements for reusable medical devices,” said Tim Dwyer, OEM
medical device business manager, 3M Industrial Adhesives and Tapes
Division. “With comprehensive offerings in bonding, fastening, attaching
and identification, we can help medical design professionals confidently
