Do you make retail products that “stick" to the skin?

  • 3M Medical Device Components for Applying 3M adhesive science to the next generation of “stick-to-skin” retail products whitepaper

    Adhesives are ubiquitous. With many applications, the retail stick-to-skin market is a good choice for companies looking to expand their product offerings.

    There are clear advantages to using medical adhesives for retail stick-to-skin applications. In any brand-focused market, trust is essential. Would you like to read more of the "Applying 3M adhesive science to the next generation of “stick-to-skin” retail products” white paper?
