3M Silicone Medical Tape Products Available Across Australia
Medical silicone tape products are frequently utilised by hospitals, clinics and practices across the world for a number of functions. These include securing tubes, drains, electrodes and other tools for the added protection of a patient's skins, as well as being applied directly to a wounded or scarring area in order to minimise visibility. Doctors, nurses and health care practitioners will opt for silicone with their adhesives as it has lower surface tension than alternatives on the market, promoting better conformation to the natural profile of someone's skin, ideal for creating less trauma for those with sensitive, fragile or compromised skin.
BP Medical Supplies offers a range of 3m medical silicone tape products that can be easily cut to desired lengths and applied for superior patient treatment. Our team are dedicated towards delivering unmatched customer service and would be happy to discuss any further needs you may have in relation to our 3m medical tape products.

The Benefits of Medical Silicone Tape on Sensitive Skin
In order to minimise the damage done to a wounded or scarring area, an optimal healing environment needs to be created. This means maintaining the ideal balance of moisture and oxygen exposure. Silicone as an adhesive technology does exactly this via its semipermeable nature, meaning it is able to protect areas of concern from external elements, whilst still allowing oxygen to enter and keep excess moisture at bay. By ensuring complete encapsulation of a scarring site, whilst evenly distributing the amount of hydration and oxygen required for recovery, the healthy tissue outside of the wound can more effectively blend with scarring tissue, creating more natural colours and a flatter, softer surface area.
When paired with other scar treatment products, such as sheets and ointments, BP Medical Supplies' 3m medical silicon tape can be highly effective in minimising scar tissue. It is non-toxic, incredibly simple in usage, and atraumatic on the skin, which is especially important with children and those with sensitivity.
