  • Usage


    1. Clean and dry the skin.
    2. Shave the hair if present on the surface of application.
    3. Remove substances that contain emollients or oils, such as most moisturizers and adhesive tape removers.
    4. If the skin is very oily, use a mild soap and water to remove the excess oil and pat dry.
    5. Pull the paper tape by fingers and tear to the required length and is pasted on the intended area.
    6. Cover adequate surface area so that the tape can support the tubing or dressing
    7. Obtain full contact between the tape and the skin or tubing so that moisture cannot slip and loosen the tape
    8. Most adhesives stick best to clean, dry surfaces so try to minimize moist conditions as much as possible
    9. If you are using a prep solution, let it dry completely before applying the tape
    10. Touch the sticky surface of the tape as little as possible, apply sufficient pressure to the tape to get the adhesive into the nooks and crannies of the skin
    11. Most adhesives stick best to clean, dry surfaces so try to minimize moist conditions as much as possible
    12. If you are using a preparative solution, let it dry completely before applying the tape.


    1. Proper tape removal is critical in reducing the occurrence of traumatic skin injuries such as skin stripping
    2. Loosen the edges of the tape. You may “start” an edge of the tape by pressing a small piece of tape onto the corner, like a pop tab, and lifting – pressure sensitive adhesive! Stabilize the skin with one finger.
    3. Remove the tape “low and slow” in the direction of hair growth. Keep the tape close to the skin surface and pulled back over it.
    4. Removing tape at an angle will increase tension on the epidermis and increase the risk of mechanical trauma.
    5. As the tape is removed, continue to support the newly exposed skin.
    6. Support close to the “peel edge” is particularly important for thin or easily distensible skin.
    7. For tape that is strongly adhered to skin or hair, you may consider using a medical grade adhesive remover or moisturizer to soften the adhesive.
    8. Continue to remove the tape “low and slow, back over itself” while gliding the moisturizer along the edge.
