3M™ Kind Removal Silicone Tape

3M™ Kind Removal Silicone Tape

Product: 3M™ Kind Removal Silicone Tape

3M™ Kind Removal Silicone Tape has a proprietary Silicone based adhesive which has lower surface energy that allows it to bond quickly at application. The adhesion level stays constant over time, allowing the tape to be repositioned without compromising on the adhesion. The hypoallergenic and latex-free silicone adhesive has more “spring,” that enables the energy of the bond to be dissipated through the adhesive rather than the skin. Removal does not cause skin to pull up as is the case with acrylate adhesives. This also ensures minimal adhesive residue upon removal. The backing is a gentle and breathable non-woven paper backing which has an easy bi-directional tear.

Single-patient use 3M™ Medical Tapes are much more economical than traditional 10 yard rolls:
--Single-patient use rolls allows less tape to be discarded per patients*
--Dedicating one roll per patient reduces the risk of cross-contamination*

*CDC guidelines increasingly suggest that some items, such as adhesive tapes, should not be shared between patients.
