3M™ Medipore™ H Soft Cloth Tape

3M Medipore™ H Soft Cloth Tape is a hypoallergenic, conformable tape which provides stronger adhesion for challenging applications. The tape is a non-woven polyester and is soft and gentle to skin, reducing the risk of skin irritation. Particularly useful for securing wound dressings, tubing and catheters.

Suggested Applications  

  • When repeated taping is needed and preservation of “at risk skin” is critical.  
  • Securing over areas where skin may stretch (e.g., edema, distention, hematoma formation or movement).


  • More gentleness than Medipore tape.
  • Higher adhesion than Medipore tape.
  • Latex-free and hypoallergenic for sensitive patients.
  • Excellent cross and diagonal stretch to accommodate moderate swelling or movement.
  • Easy-tear perforated rolls for quick tailoring.
  • Water-resistant.

The same soft, latex-free, hypoallergenic, conformable tape as standard Medipore tape, but with increased gentleness and stronger adhesion for more challenging applications. Available in perforated rolls in several sizes. 3M™ Medipore™ H Soft Cloth Tape is sold non-sterile. The following methods were tested and proven reliable for sterilization and stable adhesion performance. With ethylene oxide residuals well within U.S. FDA guidelines.

Procedure used:1) Tape rolls kept intact up to the full 10-yard length, 2) Strips of tape arranged over a suitable release surface, e.g. glass, stainless steel, silicone-treated paper, 3) One 3-sheet pad of tape, 4) Tape sealing in appropriate sterilization pouch or wrapper, 5) EtO sterilized warm cycle 55%C (130 -145°).

    great tape

    Posted by Unknown on 12th Sep 2022

    This is perfect tape for me since it is the only one I'm not allergic to. It sticks very well and is conveniently perforated so no need for a scissors.

    Use 1" & 2" and they stick really well. Best of all, this tape is the only adhesive kind that I'm not allergic to.

    Soft fabric tape

    This tape is terrific for my use. I use it to tape down my irrigation pouch at night because I sleep on my back with my pouch taped to my abdomen to hold it in place. I've never had a problem with it and will continue to use this tape every night. Works GREAT!!!!

    Best nonallergenic tape

    Posted by Unknown on 8th Dec 2016

    The Medipore soft cloth tape is the only tape my skin does not have an allergic reaction to, except for paper tape (which doesn't stick well). It took me a long time to find this, but it is truly the absolute best tape for me. I use both 1" and 2" widths. It is perforated, so easy to tear and it sticks really well.
