What to buy with 3M Surgical Tan Paper Tape

How to use 3M Micropore Tan Tape?

Application Recommendations:

  • 3M Micropore Paper Tape should be applied without tension to clean, dry skin.
  • A clipper may be used to remove hair, if necessary.
  • To protect at-risk skin, 3M Cavilon No Sting Barrier Film may be applied and when thoroughly dry, tape may be applied over it.
  • In general, do not encircle a limb completely with surgical cloth tape.
  • If distention is anticipated, use a tape that stretches or a self-adherent wrap to secure the dressing or tubing.

3M Paper Tape Removal:

  • Loosen edges of 3M Micropore Tan Paper 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 skin surface and pull back over itself.
  • Removing Micropore Medical Tape at an angle will pull the epidermis increasing risk of mechanical trauma. As tape is removed, continue supporting newly exposed skin.


The following method was tested and proven reliable for sterilization and stable adhesion performance, with ethylene oxide residuals well within U.S. FDA guidelines:
  • Strips of 3M Micropore Paper Tape arranged over a suitable release surface, e.g. glass, stainless steel, silicone-treated paper
  • Tape sealed in appropriate sterilization pouch or wrapper
  • EtO sterilized warm cycle 55 degrees C (130-145 degrees F), minimum 1 hour exposure time (50% RH - 600 mg/liter, or equivalent)
  • Warm cycle aeration (temperature not to exceed 55 degrees C) for a minimum 20 hour cycle before use

Storage and Shelf life:

  • It is recommended that 3M Medical Tapes be stored under normal conditions within the temperature range of 59 - 86 degrees F (15 - 30 degrees C)
  • 3M Micropore Medical Tape has a recommended shelf life of five years under these conditions.
