Choosing the Right Adhesive Medical Tape
Many different variables need to be taken into consideration when selecting an adhesive medical tape. Uncontrolled variables such as basic human factors (i.e., race, diet, health, environment and age) can all play a role in how adhesive medical tape will perform. When designing a product, it's easiest to focus on controlled variables such as breathability, conformability, tape thickness and size of the overall size of the contact area.
3M Double Sided Tape
Tekra can help choose the right double-sided medical tape combination for your medical project. Whether you’re bonding similar or different substrates, double-sided medical tapes from 3M provide the strength, conformability, adhesion and aesthetic requirements you need to make your project successful. Two-sided medical tape has pressure-sensitive adhesive exposed on both sides, allowing two parts to be bonded together by the tape between them. A carrier that holds adhesive can range from a film as thin as a fraction of a millimeter up to a thick foam that helps damp vibrations.
Benefits of 3M Double Sided Medical Tape
While the characteristics of 3M adhesive families and individual tapes vary, double sided tapes generally offer these benefits to your production.
