What is Surgical Tape?
A surgical tape is one of the most common things found in the first aid box. This surgical tape is used to hold bandages or other dressings in place around the wounds.
Surgical tapes come in various lengths, widths, and styles or as per the bandaging needs. It is an extremely useful product as it comes handy in various circumstances. Surgical tape is considered as an all-purpose surgical adhesive tape.
Make of Surgical Tape
Surgical tapes are pressure-sensitive adhesive tapes. These tapes are made of a variety of materials like plastics, silk, cloth, nylon, paper, and foam. But some new disposable tapes use non-woven fabric and zinc oxide glue.
Zinc oxide is used to reduce the risk of infection and allow the air to circulate around the wound. Healing of the wound occurs only when they are kept ventilated and these surgical tapes promote this healing around the wound.
The surgical tapes are skin-friendly as they are latex-free and hypoallergenic. They also hold well on damp skin. These tapes use high-quality adhesives and hence are gentle and easy to remove and also provide a long-lasting adhesion when applied onto the skin.
Are Surgical Tapes Safe?
These tapes are dermatologically tested for hypoallergenic properties to offer safe and effective healing of wounds. Surgical tapes are excellent for repetitive applications on fragile or sensitive skin and on elderly patients without damaging the skin. These surgical tapes fall off on their own within 2-weeks or can be easily removed after two-weeks.
The material used in the process of making these surgical tapes is breathable which in turn expedites fast recovery and reserves skin integrity. Surgical tape is perfect for small to medium dressings to hold the bandage onto a proper position; it also conforms to the shape of the wound for further convenience.
Surgical tape comes with a handy dispenser for appropriate tearing and dispensing. The surgical tape can be easily torn due to the material used for its manufacture.
