Non-woven medical tapes are used for several purposes, including wound coverings, neuromuscular (TENS) stimulation and EKG electrodes, as well as protective pads and covers. These applications often require low-profile, conformable tapes with sensitive adhesives. To meet these requirements, MACtac Technical Products has designed TM9478 and 9479, non-woven medical tapes with a hypoallergenic medical grade adhesive. Both tapes are constructed with facestocks of 2.4 ounce non-woven, spunlaced polyester Sontara. The facestock is coated on one side with an acrylic-based, hypoallergenic medical grade adhesive, and protected by a 70# densified, semi-bleached kraft release liner with a silicone release system. The TM9478 has a flesh-colored facestock, while the TM9479 is white. "Combining our medical grade adhesives with the Sontara facestock results in a unique combination of strength and porosity," explains Tim Mlnarik, Mactac Technical Products marketing manager. "The combination of a breathable facestock and an aggressive, skin-friendly adhesive system allows for patient comfort in applications with sustained periods on the skin."
