They are available in Contours, Rolls & Straight Strips.
DAILY WEAR: 1522 CLEAR™
It is an inert tape so there is nothing to cause a skin reaction, making this tape a great hypoallergenic option. It leaves very little residue, making it popular for day-to-day use. The liner and backing are white but the actual tape is clear. Not ideal for mesh units because it has some shine.
Gentleness: Medical Grade
Liner: Printed white ( tape is clear)
EXTENDED WEAR: SENSI-TAK
Sensi-Tak is a very low residue tape and is our cleanest tape to remove. It’s popular for use on poly units due to its easy cleanup. It does have some shine, so it’s not recommended for lace units. The liner is red but the actual tape is clear.
Gentleness: Not for all skin types
Liner: Red (tape is clear)
MAXIMUM WEAR: NO-SHINE
No-Shine has a very dull finish and is practically invisible through the unit. It’s made with urethane which makes it very flexible. This tape also in 1.5″ width rolls so it’s perfect for full-coverage jobs. It’s easy to clean and doesn’t break down as much as other tapes during removal. It’s great for use with any unit. The liner is white but the actual tape is clear.
Dullness: Dull (Great for lace)
Liner: Printed white (tape is clear)
*Please remember to do a patch test before full application.
The patch test ensures you do not react negatively to a particular tape or adhesive.
- Place a small amount of adhesive/tape on an area of sensitive skin.
- Put a band-aid over the adhesive/tape and leave alone for the night.
- Remove the band-aid the following day and check for any reaction.
If there is any redness or irritation, do not use the product. Also, check to make sure that the bond didn’t release from the skin. If no irritation occurred and the bond was secure, you can use that product with confidence.
