Medical and Healthcare

The healthcare industry demands a wide variety of functional adhesive materials, many with unique qualities for highly specialized applications. Medical tapes and films must be durable, flexible and safe to use in a broad range of conditions and combinations—in some cases, within the human body itself.


Avery Dennison applies continuous R&D and the full strength of our materials science expertise to engineer safe, easy-to-use adhesive materials for healthcare applications. In addition, our RFID solutions can help hospitals, healthcare facilities and manufacturers enhance their security and operational effectiveness.
