    Microporous Tape Uses

    What is microporous tape used for?

    There are many microporous tape uses across the healthcare sector. Nurses and doctors commonly use microporous paper surgical tape to secure dressings and bandages to a patient’s skin. The micorporous tape’s breathable material makes it comfortable to wear with a skin-friendly adhesive that can be easily removed when required. 

    Along with regular use across wound care treatments, microporous tape is useful for holding catheters and drips in place securely.

    Some patients use microporous tape to aid in the healing of surgical scars as part of their post-operative healing. Applied over a healing wound area, microporous tape can provide tension over the damaged skin and tissue, promoting healing and reducing the risk of developing problematic scarring over time. Always seek professional medical advice before using microporous tape during recovery from surgery. 

    Is microporous tape waterproof?

    Sterotape microporous tape has a strong, medical-grade adhesive that will remain adhered to skin for long periods. The long-lasting adhesive can hold the tape secure when wet, however, due to the tape’s micropores, the fabric won’t stop water from reaching the skin beneath, so it cannot be described as 100% waterproof microporous tape. 

    It’s also important to be aware that if you are using microporous tape to hold a wound dressing in place while bathing or showering, your wound dressing may not be waterproof either.
