The main materials of medical packaging tape are cotton, non-woven fabrics, pure wood pulp, and PE film. They are non-toxic and non-irritating and have good breathability. Medical packaging tape is soft, easy to unroll, and convenient to use. It is suitable for cross-shaped packaging of sterilized cotton cloth packages used by medical units and enterprises. It can be sterilized by pressure steam, ethylene oxide, formaldehyde, etc. The medical tape is suitable for hospital sterilization packaging and can be used in central disinfection supply rooms, operating rooms, and dental departments. The characteristics of medical tape include the use of pure wood pulp as the natural material of the substrate, which is non-toxic, non-irritating, and has good breathability. Medical packaging tape is soft, easy to unroll, and convenient to use. It is suitable for cross-shaped packaging of sterilized cotton cloth packages used by medical units and enterprises.
As a type of adhesive tape, adhesiveness is one of the main characteristics of medical tape. So, how adhesive is it? Is it firmly adhesive? Medical tape is a medical product, and its requirements for adhesiveness are different from those of ordinary tape. It cannot be too adhesive, nor can it be not adhesive at all. It needs to have a certain level of adhesiveness to stick to infusion tubes and skin. However, it cannot be too adhesive, as it can cause pain when removed. Generally, the adhesiveness of medical tape is not high but moderate and gentle.
There are many types of medical tape commonly used, including pressure-sensitive medical tape, moisture-proof and anti-allergy medical tape, paper-based anti-allergy medical tape, and fully transparent and breathable medical tape. Among them, the adhesion of the two anti-allergy medical tapes is relatively low and cannot be used as static tapes. Among the other two, the adhesiveness of the fully transparent and breathable medical tape is relatively lower than that of the pressure-sensitive medical tape.
Generally, although there are differences in the adhesiveness of medical tape, regular products are relatively firm after sticking and are not easy to fall off or curl. If a slightly more adhesive medical tape is required, fabric medical tape can be used.
Stay away from allergens and avoid contact with medical tape. Use special anti-allergy medical tape when necessary.
Do not keep the medical tape on the body for too long and replace it regularly.
