Surgical and medical tape, also known as medical adhesive tape, is used to secure bandages, gauze, and other dressings to the skin around wounds. Most adhesive tapes are pressure sensitive tapes, which means they stick and stay in place when you apply firm pressure. Heat activation or the use of a solvent are not required. Mostly adhesive medical tape skin-friendly, simple to apply, and strong enough to hold up to bending, bending, and damp skin.
These tapes are made of porous material, which allows air to pass through to the skin, so they have also known as micro pore or microporous tape.
