How to use 3M Blenderm Tape?

3M Tape Application Instructions

  • 3M Blenderm Clear Plastic Tape should be applied without tension to clean, dry skin
  • A clipper may be used to remove hair, if necessary
  • To protect at-risk skin, 3M Cavilon No Sting Barrier Film may be applied and when thoroughly dry, tape may be applied over it
  • In general, do not encircle a limb completely with surgical cloth tape
  • If distention is anticipated, use a tape that stretches or a self-adherent wrap to secure the dressing or tubing

3M Hypoallergenic Tape Application

A. General taping
  1. Apply the 3M Blenderm Surgical Tape without tension, gently but firmly stroking the surface to maximize adhesion
  2. Tape should extend at least one-half inch beyond the dressing
  3. Tape should not be pulled or stretched when applied. 
  4. If swelling does occur, loosen and re-fasten or replace tape to relieve the tension

B. When compression is needed
  1. Place first section of 3M Blenderm Tape without tension onto skin on one side of the dressing, gently pressing downward
  2. With one hand, secure tape on one edge of the dressing while slightly stretching next section of tape over the dressing
  3. Secure tape on opposite edge of the dressing
  4. Press remaining waterproof surgical tape onto skin without tension
  5. Compression should come from the multiple layers of dressing material, not from excessive tension in the tape
  6. Skin distention under tape may result in blistering and should be relieved as soon as possible

Blenderm Surgical Tape Removal

Proper tape removal is critical in reducing the skin trauma:
  1. Loosen edges of 3M Blenderm Clear Plastic Tape. If necessary, press a small piece of tape onto a corner to start an edge of the tape
  2. Stabilize the skin with one finger.
  3. Remove tape "low and slow" in direction of hair growth, keeping it close to skin surface and pull back over itself
  4. Removing 3M Blenderm tape at an angle will pull the epidermis increasing risk of mechanical trauma. As tape is removed, continue supporting newly exposed skin

Considerations While Choosing A Tape For Tube Or Dressing Secural:

I. Degree of importance of tube or dressing:
  • The more critical the tubing/dressing, the higher the adhesion required
  • Strength of adhesion and backing may be more important than gentleness
  • Gentle tapes with higher adhesion may be used without increasing the risk of skin trauma if properly applied and removed
  • Some tapes are less gentle but are used for high initial adhesion, high long-term adhesion and high strength of backing

II. Surface characteristics:


  • Dry
  • Damp
  • Diaphoretic
  • Wet: secretions, leaking tubes
  • Weeping
  • Macerated
  • Oily
  • Hairy
  • Edematous
  • Intact vs. impaired skin integrity
  • Elastic vs. non-elastic
  • Fragile skin (elderly, very young)
  • “At-risk” (e.g., patient on systemic
    corticosteroids, chemotherapy; malnourished)
  • Flexing


  • Material
  • Weight
  • Conformability
  • Contour
  • Weight
  • Material: metal, plastic, other 
  • Diameter: small, large
  • Texture: smooth, ribbed, other
  • Material: PVC, silicone, other
  • Weight
  • Length
  • Potential for drag or pull
  • Other support (e.g., sutures, tunneling)

  • Heavy tubings require higher adhesion
  • Bulky dressings require high conformability and may require greater adhesion
  • Individual results may vary

III. Activity level of patient:

  • The more active the patient, the higher the adhesion required

IV.Potential for skin surface distention or movement:
  • The risk of skin damage may be reduced by using tapes that stretch with skin distention or movement

V. Anticipated wear time:
  • Tape adhesion generally builds over time. Breathable tapes are used for longer term wear

VI. History and current medical conditions:
  • History and current medical conditions should be studied e.g., allergies/ sensitivities to medical adhesives, medications, medical conditions
