Micropore Tape is ideal for covering cuts and blisters on small or hard to reach areas. It is made up of a comfortable, non-extensible and non-woven fabric that is manufactured from 100% viscose and coated with a layer of acrylic adhesive. Easily torn to length and applied, Micropore Tape will withstand limited exposure to water once it is on the skin, without losing all of its adhesive properties. Because the tape is permeable to both water and water vapour, it will allow the passage of sweat and secretions from the surface of the body to the environment, preventing maceration of the skin.
Micropore may be used for most general purpose applications, but it is most commonly used for dressing retention on non-flexing areas. As the tape is coated with an acrylic adhesive system, it may generally be used on patients who have exhibited an adverse reaction to adhesives based upon zinc oxide, rubber, or resin.
Micropore Tape Dispenser includes tape 25mm x 5m.
