Questions & Answers

question image
What is the best way to get the last of the Medipore tape off the roll (AKA “I want to use it all up”)?
Alberto - 9/23/2014 12:32:32 AM
answer image
If you are having difficulty getting the last bit of Medipore tape off of the roll, look at how you are holding the tape while you are tearing it. Although the tape nearest the core IS wound a little tighter than the outside layers, the most common cause of tight unwind may be squeezing the roll when tearing off sections of tape. Try holding the roll gently, unwind the amount of tape you want, put fingers on either side of the perforations and tear. 

Another way to avoid squeezing the roll: put your right middle finger inside the tape core; unwind the tape to the length you need so that the perforations stop just at the edge of the roll; support the edge of the tape next to the roll with your right thumb; now, using your left hand, tear down at the perforations.

What is the difference between Medipore tape and Medipore H tape?
Michael - 9/15/2014 7:45:47 AM
answer image
Originally, Medipore tape and Medipore H tape differed. Both had the same nonwoven, polyester backing; however, the adhesive differed. Medipore H tape was developed after Medipore tape in order to enhance adhesion while maintaining gentleness to skin. Recently, the difference between Medipore tape and Medipore H tape has been eliminated so that now both tapes provide the higher level of adhesion while maintaining the gentleness to the skin.

Why don’t we make a soft cloth tape on a liner?
Kelsey - 9/6/2014 7:48:21 AM
answer image
Two disadvantages of a soft cloth on liner are: 
  • The liner waste generated 
  • Its tendency to stick to itself when static is generated as the liner is removed.
Soft cloth without a liner is easy to handle, is designed to release from itself, and may be used for the majority of applications without waste.

Why do we have an expiration date for tapes? What happens when a tape “expires?”
Christa - 8/14/2014 7:46:09 AM
answer image
The expiration date allows us to ensure performance of the tape products within a specified time period. In general, we do not expect changes in performance shortly after the expiration date, but 3M ensures performance within that time frame. The recommended shelf life for Medipore tape is 3 years under normal storage conditions.

question image
Is there a special way to apply Medipore tape?
Nehaih - 8/9/2014 12:31:13 AM
answer image
The direction of the stretch should be considered when securing a dressing or tubing to an area that is at high risk for distention, edema, hematoma formation, or movement. Anecdotally, applying soft cloth tape parallel to the incision appears to be associated with fewer skin injuries than taping perpendicular to the incision. When distention or movement under the tape is not anticipated, the direction of the stretch of Medipore tape is not known to make a difference.

Is Medipore tape sterile? Can it be sterilized?
Nelly - 7/26/2014 1:16:44 AM
answer image
Rolls of 3M Medical Tapes are sold clean, not sterile. Medipore tape may be sterilized by ethylene oxide but NOT by steam (autoclave).
