“Be brave, because you don’t have to know the answer. You’re going to find the answer.”
Audrey Sherman graduated from Augsburg College with a bachelor’s degree in chemistry. She has worked at 3M for almost 30 years in various capacities, including R&D laboratory operations, organic synthesis, and condensation polymerizations. She has more than 180 U.S. patents, making her the first woman at the corporation to hold 100 patents.
Audrey Sherman was initially attracted to science by the prospect of “cooking polymers all day and driving a sports vehicle,” but it was her personal ambition and insatiable curiosity that propelled her to the position of 3M’s top female patent holder.

What Technologies are covered by Audrey Sherman Patents?
Patents talking about Adhesives include Primer Layers: when bonding or coating two different materials together, priming layers are utilised. Controlling the level of adhesion of one material to another is one of the goals of the priming layer. The priming layer can help strengthen the bond between two layers.
Heat sensitive adhesives have been described for a range of applications. This refers to the fact that when heat is applied to an adhesive product, a response is produced. The reaction in some articles is to build a bond, whereas in others it is to sever a bond.
Patents talking about Films include metallized films, in example, can produce a decorative aesthetic or specular mirror reflection that is less time consuming and less expensive than standard chrome plating. Manufacturing a conformable metallized reflective film that stretches to the shape of a three-dimensional surface, has optical uniformity and reflection, and stays in place whether put in deep channels or around sharp radii, on the other hand, is extremely difficult. The present invention addresses the challenges faced in manufacturing a conformable reflective film.
Over the course of her career, Sherman has concocted countless formulas for adhesives that are designed to withstand the wear-and-tear of consumer electronic devices, each time reinforcing it with erudite knowledge of the way an invention will impact decisions in material selection, the end-user and environment.
The most popular patent US6569521B1– Stretch releasing pressure sensitive adhesive tape and articles, talks about Stretch releasing adhesive tape innovation. These are frequently used to attach to a substrate and then release when stretched. These tapes can be used for a range of tasks, such as assembling, connecting, attaching, and mounting. By extending the tape at an angle to the surface of the substrate to which it is bound, it can be removed from the substrate. The invention contains a stretch releasing adhesive tape with a silicone pressure sensitive adhesive composition that has a 180° peel strength on a glass substrate when the relative humidity is 98 percent.
Once adhered to a substrate, such as wallboard, many stretch releasing adhesive tapes are neatly removed from the substrate, leaving no apparent residue and causing no visible harm to the substrate. However, in high-humidity situations such as showers, baths, and kitchens, they have trouble adhering to substrates like porcelain and glass.
