Medical Adhesive Tape 101

Medical adhesive tape, or surgical tape, is used to attach bandages, gauze, and other dressings to the skin around wounds. Most adhesive tapes are a type of pressure sensitive tape; i.e., tape that sticks and stays in place with firm pressure. There’s no need for heat activation or a solvent. Medical adhesive tape can be made from various materials, but most are breathable for comfort and ease of use. In the medical field, different types of adhesive tape are used for different things. Some are made of softer materials, such as cotton; others are more elastic to support flexibility. Transparent Surgical Tape Here are some of the most common types of medical adhesive tape and how they differ. Micropore Paper Tape — Commonly used to secure bandages and dressings to skin without leaving a sticky residue, micropore paper tape is hypoallergenic and can be used long-term, without fear of skin irritation. Its adhesive sticks to the skin, underlying tape, or directly to dressing materials. Tiny holes, or micropores, in the tape, make it breathable (speeding up healing), and it’s easy to tear (ideal for emergency situations). Transpore Polyethylene Tape — This hypoallergenic, translucent tape sticks to the patient without sticking to surgical gloves or other surgical tools. It adheres well to wet surfaces — patients who are wet, bleeding, or sweating — so this very strong tape is often used to secure tubing or dressings. Transpore tape is breathable but not flexible; it's made from a non-stretch film.
