3M Health Care is now Solventum 


On 1 April 2024, Solventum completed its spin-off from 3M and became the newly independent healthcare company. 

Solventum originates from two words: ‘solving’ and ‘momentum’. ‘Solving’ captures the company’s dedication to finding breakthrough solutions. ‘Momentum’ symbolises swifter, nimbler innovation; ergo “with every healthcare challenge we solve, we gain momentum”.

As a new company with what it describes as “a long legacy of creating breakthrough solutions that solve our customers’ toughest challenges”, Solventum says its colleagues worldwide “are united in their mission to enable better, smarter, safer healthcare to improve lives”.

The company is made up of four business segments—Dental Solutions, Medical Surgical, Health Information Systems and Purification and Filtration. 

Solventum solutions are relied on everyday within the global healthcare industry, and contribute to “higher-quality patient care, more efficient processes and workflow, and improved standards of safety and accuracy”. For example, Solventum products have been used in over two billion dental restoration procedures worldwide.

Solventum’s diverse portfolio of brands includes Filtek™, RelyX™, Scotchbond™, Sof-Lex™, Victory Series™ and Transbond™.
