What to buy with 3M Durapore Silk-Like Cloth Surgical Tape

Durapore Tape Commonly Asked Questions

Q: Is Durapore tape hypoallergenic & natural rubber latex free?
A: Yes.

Q: Is Durapore tape sterile? Can it be sterilized?
A: Durapore tape may be sterilized by ethylene oxide or gamma but NOT by steam (autoclave). Although 3M provides these guidelines, it is up to the facility to ensure sterility. At this time, Sterrad processing with hydrogen peroxide is not recommended for Durapore tape.

Q: Has Durapore tape changed?
A: Not recently. The adhesive on Durapore tape did change briefly in 1998. Originally, Durapore tape had a solvent-based adhesive. This changed to a “solventless” adhesive in 1998 and then back again in 1999. The tape with the “solventless” adhesive felt a little “stiffer”.

Q: Why do we have an expiration date for tapes? What happens when a tape “expires”?
A: Although an expiration date is not required for surgical tapes in the U.S., an expiration date is required by a number of other countries. You might think of it as a “best quality if used by….”. In general, we do not expect changes in performance shortly after the expiration date, but 3M ensures performance within that time frame. The recommended shelf life for Durapore tape is 5 years under normal storage conditions.
