3M’s New Durapore Advanced Surgical Tape for Keeping Tubes in Place

By | November 9, 2018

3M is releasing a new surgical adhesive tape that was developed to address special needs for a variety of clinical applications. The 3M Durapore Advanced tape is particularly beneficial when securing critical tubes that have to stay in place without a danger of being moved (chest tubes, JP drains, etc).

The new product line adheres to skin, various tubes, and to itself, and when the surface is moist, having different textures, and in humid environments the tape is designed to perform well. The tape sticks on evenly throughout the surface, lifting very little at the edges.

The tape has no natural rubber latex, but 3M claims it sticks on better than tapes that rely on latex.
