Medical Cloth Silk Adhesive Tape is a silk-like fabric with hypoallergenic adhesive for anchoring tubing and devices, and secure dressings on the skin without damaging the surface. However, Silk Cloth Adhesive Tape differs from regular cloth fabric by providing increased strength and durability, especially on dry skin. Microporous adhesion has the additional benefit of making the skin around the wound area more breathable and easier for re-application
STAYGUARD™ IS THE BRAND OF CHOICE
StayGuard™ Medical Cloth Silk Tape provides additional durability, improved bi-directional perforation, and better adhesion to dry skin when compared to regular cloth tape. XtraGuard microporous adhesion provides the user more comfort by allowing the wound area to breath.
Medical Cloth Silk Adhesive Tape is utilized for numerous purposes in hospitals, clinics, first aid kits, and household use, much like regular cloth tape, but it is more durable. This product is sold in both the hospital and retail sectors and is widely available in many countries. Medical Cloth Silk Tape can be used to hold any medical tubing, devices, or dressings onto the skin, especially those that require a stronger hold.
Can I stick the tape right on top of my wound?
StayGuard™ medical cloth silk adhesive tape, especially the microporous type, allows air to reach the wound so that the wound can ‘breathe.’ However, it does not mean you stick the tape right on the wound. With the proper gauze padding, or other suitable dressing material, our tape will fix the dressing in place and aid in airflow by having micropores on the adhesive.
What is the difference between StayGuard™ Medical Cloth Adhesive Tape and StayGuard™ Medical Cloth Silk Adhesive Tape?
The first obvious difference would be the material: cloth adhesive tape would be made out of cloth, and silk tape would me made of silk-like material. However, one would choose silk tape over the normal surgical cloth tape when the tape has to be more durable and stronger. Also, silk tapes are better for dry skin, and cloth tape works well for damp skin. Both are used for similar uses such as securing dressings, or tubings.
