What to buy with 3M Durapore Tape?

How to Use 3M Durapore Surgical Tape?

3M Durapore Silk Tape General taping

3M_Micropore_Medical_Tape Apply the tape without tension, gently but firmly stroking the surface to maximize adhesion. Tape should extend at least one-half inch beyond the dressing. Tape should not be pulled or stretched when applied. If the swelling does occur, loosen and re-fasten or replace tape to relieve the tension.

How to compress 3M Silk Medical Tape?

3M_Micropore_Medical_Tape Place the first section of tape without tension onto the skin on one side of the dressing, gently pressing downward.
3M_Micropore_Medical_Tape With one hand, secure tape on one edge of the dressing while slightly stretching the next section of tape over the dressing.
3M_Micropore_Medical_Tape Secure tape on the opposite edge of the dressing.
3M_Micropore_Medical_Tape Press remaining tape onto the skin without tension. Compression should come from the multiple layers of dressing material, not from excessive tension in the tape. Skin distention under tape may result in blistering and should be relieved as soon as possible.

How to Remove Durapore Hypoallergenic Tape?

  • Proper tape removal is critical in reducing the occurrence of skin trauma.
  • Loosen edges of the tape. If necessary, press a small piece of tape onto a corner to start an edge of the tape.
  • Stabilize the skin with one finger. Remove tape “low and slow” in direction of hair growth, keeping it close to the skin surface, and pull back over itself.
  • Removing tape at an angle will pull at the epidermis increasing risk of mechanical trauma.
  • As the tape is removed, continue supporting newly exposed skin.

Properties of 3M Surgical Tape Adhesive

  • Hypoallergenic.
  • Free of natural rubber latex.
  • Pressure-sensitive (adhere with only finger or hand pressure).
  • Designed to be as gentle as possible and yet deliver the desired performance.

3m Durapore Tape 1538 Application recommendations

  • Always apply to clean dry surfaces.
  • To maximize adhesion, gently press or rub from the center out to the edges of the tape.
  • To promote skin health, do not stretch or apply tension over areas where the tape will be adhering directly to the skin.
