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.
