3M™ Blenderm™ Surgical Tape

3M™ Blenderm™ Surgical Tape is a latex free, hypoallergenic, occlusive transparent tape designed to provide a barrier from external fluids and contamination. This tape is ideal for protecting wounds and for specialist applications.

3M™ Blenderm™ Surgical Tape is plastic and occlusive. It protects wounds from moisture, fluid and bacterial contamination when used for short term fixation of dressings. This makes the tape ideal for industrial medicine. 3M™ Blenderm™ Surgical Tape is transparent to allow easy skin monitoring. The tape flexes and stretches to help it conform to movement. The hypoallergenic adhesive on 3M™ Blenderm™ Surgical Tape provides adequate adhesion yet minimal trauma on removal. Radiolucent. Available in 3 sizes.
 Indications for Use
  • As a cover for allergy 'patch testing'
  • Protecting topical medications
  • Protection of dressings during hydrotherapy
  • Protective covering for short term fixation of wound dressings


 Please note: 3M™ Blenderm™ Surgical Tape is indicated for short term use only.  Prolonged use may lead to skin maceration.

 Successful Application & Removal

  • Apply tape evenly to clean, dry surface
  • Position and press down from centre outwards
  • Maximise adhesion by firmly rubbing or pressing tape backing
  • Never apply tape under tension. This may induce blistering or skin tearing


  • Loosen tape ends
  • Remove tape in direction of hair growth. Keep tape close to skin surface and slowly pull tape back
