3M™ Medipore™ Surgical Tape

3M™ Medipore™ Surgical Tape is a latex free, soft, hypoallergenic, conformable tape with 'easy-tear' perforations.

With 'easy-tear' perforations approximately every 5cm, 3M™ Medipore™ Surgical Tape can be torn quickly to size with no need for scissors! The tape is highly conformable to body contours. Its moderate stretch accommodates a degree of swelling or movement without skin trauma. Hypoallergenic 3M™ Medipore™ Surgical Tape has excellent adhesion but is gentle enough to use on fragile skin. Porous and breathable, it offers improved patient comfort. Available in 6 sizes.
