Microporous Tape

The Tape Lab works with 3M and other highly sought after microporous tape manufacturers to die cut our tapes into narrow rolls, strips and specialty die cut shapes, ultimately helping the end user have a custom product for their markets.

The Tape Lab can customize the tape and make almost any shape or size that your patients will need to make it more convenient to apply and reapply. The Tape Lab can also make short length rolls as well as longer length rolls to fit your needs.

Some of the typical uses that The Tape Lab can help you customize the tape for are:

  • Securing small to medium dressings especially on damp skin
  • Securing lightweight tubing
  • Securing ostomy appliances
  • Taping fragile, at-risk skin
  • Repeated taping

Microporous Tape Materials

Our microporous tapes, including 3M Microporous tape, are medical grade, breathable paper tapes that are extremely lightweight and gentle, yet offer secure adhesion especially on sensitive skin. Microporous tape works well on frequently changed wound closure areas and on compromised or at-risk skin. Microporous tape leaves minimal adhesive residue upon removal, and it is an economical and general purpose tape.
