Medical Grade Tape, Foam Film and Foil Materials

  • Our range of medical tapes

    Due to the sensitivity and sometimes delicate nature of skin, especially in the young and elderly, unique characteristics are required of medical tapes and materials. Where medical pressure sensitive adhesives are attached to the skin, it is vital that these do not cause discomfort or, in woundcare applications, impede healing.

    Sophisticated technologies in hypoallergenic tapes, films, speciality coatings and materials are not only comfortable and conformable but can also encourage healing. Medical materials can offer other benefits such as long term wear and are flexible and breathable, whilst maintaining water resistance and preventing the ingress of bacteria. In addition, medical materials can offer cushioning benefits, provide clean removal and can be repositionable without causing discomfort.

    In non stick to skin medical applications, filtration and ventilation materials offer solutions for gas and liquid management in, for example, ostomy bags and respiratory monitoring equipment.

    Things to consider when choosing a medical material might include, moisture vapour transmission rate (MVTR), outgassing, fluid handling capacity, wear time, absorbency and holding power. The optimum material for your application is dependent on these and other considerations; we will ensure the right material is chosen for your individual needs.
