3M™ Microfoam™ Surgical Tape

3M™ Microfoam™ Surgical Tape is a latex free, highly conformable, hypoallergenic, elastic foam tape. Its stretch makes it ideal for dressing challenging areas and for specialist applications.

3M™ Microfoam™ Surgical Tape is stretchy in all directions. It gives with swelling, helping to prevent trauma to the body. Highly conformable, 3M™ Microfoam™ Surgical Tape can help to dress challenging areas. It provides compression where required to decrease bleeding and accommodate oedema. 3M™ Microfoam™ Surgical Tape is valuable for cushioning and protecting, and acts as a barrier to water and contamination.
