3M Kind Removal Silicone Tape is designed to better protect patients with compromised, sensitive or at-risk skin. Because of this, it is effective in many situations and medical procedures. Because the tape is atraumatic and doesn't grab patient hair or skin cells, it can be easily repositioned as necessary to ensure proper application of bandages and other treatment methods.
For best results, it is important to apply the 3M Silicone Kind Removal Tape to a clean, dry area of the skin, gently but firmly applying pressure to help the adhesive follow the contour of the skin. Avoid touching the sticky surface of the tape and be sure to adhere to a surface area large enough to support the tubing or dressing that is being secured.
When removing the tape, pull the tape from the skin slowly and back over itself in the direction of hair growth, carefully supporting the skin as the tape is removed.
