Description

The BV Non-Woven Microporous Adhesive Tape, also known as 4por, is an adhesive with non-woven porous support. It has high permeability to the air and the adhesive mass is hypoallergenic, allowing the highest cutaneous tolerance.

The BV Non-Woven Microporous Adhesive Tape is white in colour.

Uses

The BV Non-Woven Microporous Adhesive Tape can be used for securing dressings in place or alone for minor wounds. It lowers the risk of an allergic reaction, and the strong adhesive is specially formulated for long lasting use, making sure the dressing stays in place and the would has time to heal.

Microporous Adhesive Tape is also commonly recommended to minimize post-surgical scar formation. Microporous tape allows skin to breathe while protecting the area from stenting. Stenting pulls the wound in a way that can cause thick scars to develop. Microporous tape secures the skin and helps prevent pulling.

Application

With Dressing
Gently clean the wound under running water and dry thoroughly. Cover the wound with a dressing if needed and attach with tape. Apply a clean dressing regularly until the wound heals.

For use on a scar

Clean the area thoroughly with warm water and mild soap. If the scar is fresh, follow your doctor’s instructions for wound care. Pat the region dry with a clean towel.

Rip or cut the appropriate section of tape. Avoid touching the sticky side of the tape.

Lay the section of tape across the scar. Cover the area completely with the tape.

Apply pressure to the tape by running your fingertip along the surface or pressing the palm of your hand on top of the tape. Rub the tape into place – laying the tape on the area will not provide enough contact to support a strong hold. Gentle pressure will attach the adhesive to skin surface.

Leave the tape in place for 24 hours and then remove it. Change the tape more often if instructed by your doctor. To remove, grasp one end with your fingertips and gently pull back. Clean the area and apply new tape. The use of Microporous tape is recommended for six weeks.
