What to buy with 3M Scotchcast Plus Tapes?

When to use 3M 82004 Scotchcast Plus Casting Tape?

  • Intended for use in the construction of most common orthopedic casts, as well as specialized prosthetics and orthotic devices
  • Specific application suitability should be the responsibility of a qualified, on-site medical professional

How to use 3M Scotchcast Plus?

  1. Slip one or two layers of 3M Stockinet over the affected part, and/or wrap with 3M Cast Padding. If desired, additional cast padding may be used for greater protection of pressure points and bony prominences. It is important to use 3M water-shedding stockinet and cast padding to enable thorough drying if the cast should be immersed in water.
  2. Gloves MUST be worn while wrapping the casting tape since the resin in the tape will transfer and adhere to the skin
  3. Select the desired width of Scotchcast casting tape. Open only one roll at a time, since room humidity may initiate hardening.
  4. Immerse the roll of tape in room temperature water 70-75°F (21-24°C).
    NOTE: Three firm squeezes of the roll while it is submerged will give a set time of approximately 3 minutes. To lengthen the set time, immerse the roll and remove it immediately without squeezing. This technique will give a set time of approximately 4 minutes. When using Scotchcast Plus casting tapes, there may be a decrease in slipperiness if the roll is not squeezed while submerged in water. Warmer water shortens the set time while cooler water will lengthen it. If the roll is immersed in water above 80°F (27°C) an increase in exotherm may be noted.
  5. Construct the cast by wrapping spirally, overlapping the previous turn one-half to two-thirds the width of the tape. As with any cast, take care to avoid excessive tightness. To ensure a snug fit, however, wrap with slight tension on the tape rather than the rolling application common to plaster.
  6. Just three or four layers provide a strong nonweight-bearing cast and five to eight layers are typically adequate for weight-bearing cast. Additional layers are generally not necessary for strength and will reduce porosity.


  • The polyurethane resin in Scotchcast products will adhere firmly to unprotected skin and to clothing
  • Protective examination or surgical gloves MUST be worn while handling the tape
  • Care should be exercised to avoid contacting unprotected areas of the patient’s skin during application
  • One should allow the material to fully cure before touching with unprotected skin.
  • This takes about 30 minutes
