AVERY DENNISON MEDICAL SOLUTIONS: Medical Foam Tape

April 30, 2012

A new medical foam tape reportedly provides comfortable, breathable securement and can serve as a backing material in multiple constructions, including multi-layer wound dressings and fixation devices. Sold as a component, MED 5663U medical foam tape consists of a soft polyurethane carrier, skin-friendly acrylic adhesive and a paper release liner. The tape’s tan-colored carrier has a film and foam laminate structure and features a smooth outer layer that minimizes friction from clothes, bedding, and other fabrics. The carrier can conform to body contours and permit free movement without stretching the skin.
