  • Adhesive medical tape

    Medical tape is available with a variety of backing and adhesive types for many healthcare applications. They can be breathable, conformable, waterproof, repositionable, absorbent, hypoallergenic, hydrophilic and dimensionally stable with a gentle or aggressive adhesive for short or long-term bonding. 

    We supply paper, plastic, fabric, silicone, foam and cloth tape from World leading suppliers such as 3M, Vancive and Adhesives Research. As a 3M Preferred Converter, we offer experience and expertise in the specification and converting of their medical grade materials to the highest quality requirements. 

    Stick-to-skin tapes are available for wound care, ostomy, wearable device bonding, device fixation to skin and surgical tape applications. Sophisticated technologies in hypoallergenic tapes, films, speciality coatings and materials are comfortable, conformable and can encourage healing, as well as prevent the ingress of bacteria. 

    In non stick-to-skin applications, we supply venting materials for gas and liquid management, hydrophilic and bioassay compatible tapes for diagnostics and double sided tapes for device assembly, as well as a wide portfolio of materials for medical device shielding, protection, thermal management, sealing and insulating.
