  • About double sided medical tape

    Double sided medical tape and medical transfer tapes offer reliable adhesion to skin, as well as to foams, non-wovens, films, plastics and metals. Our double sided materials offer permanent and temporary attachment of two substrates and are ideal for stick to skin and device assembly applications.
