3M™ Durapore™ Surgical Tape

3M™ Durapore™ Surgical Tape is a latex free, multi-purpose, hypoallergenic 'silk-like' tape. It has a strong, durable backing for applications where strength is required.

3M™ Durapore™ Surgical Tape has a woven backing for extra strength. Its excellent adhesion provides security for critical taping situations. The tape is conformable to body contours but not extensible. The permeable backing prevents moisture build-up, so improving patient comfort. 3M™ Durapore™ Surgical Tape has a hypoallergenic adhesive, and is gentle to the skin. The tape leaves no residue on removal. Available in 4 sizes.
