3M Scotchcast Plus Casting Tape is strong, lightweight, water resistant and hard wearing that combines the benefits of a synthetic tape with the handling ease of plaster.

Exposure of casting tape to moisture or water initiates a chemical reaction which causes it to become rigid. This tape conform well to contours, improving cast fit thus increasing patients comfort and mobility.

More Information

  • Instructions For Use:
    - Slip one or two layers of 3M Stockinet over the affected part 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
    - Gloves must be worn while wrapping the casting tape since the resin in the tape will transfer and adhere to the skin.
    - Select the desired width of Scotchcast casting tape.
    - Immerse the roll of tape in room temperature water 70-75°F (21-24°C).
    NOTE: To lengthen the set time, immerse the roll in cold water 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. If the roll is immersed in water above 80°F (27°C) an increase in exotherm may be noted.
    - Construct the cast by wrapping spirally, overlapping the previous turn one-half to two-thirds the width of the tape.
    - Avoid excessive tightness.
    - Just three or four layers provide a strong non weight-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.
  • Precautions:
    - The polyurethane resin will adhere firmly to unprotected skin and to clothing.
    - Care should be exercised to avoid contacting unprotected areas of the patients skin during application.
    - One should allow the material to fully cure before touching with unprotected skin.This takes about 30 minutes.
    - If water immersion is anticipated, the casted extremity must be prepared with a suitable water-shedding stockinet and/or cast padding.
    - Patients must be thoroughly instructed in techniques of drying their casts if they become wet, as prolonged or too-frequent wetting or ineffective drying can lead to skin maceration or other complications.
    - Maximum strength is achieved when cast is thoroughly dried
