  • 3M™ Kind Removal Silicone Tape One of a Kind Story Over 50 years ago, a team of 3M scientists began their quest for a better medical tape. Among them was Frank Copeland, a 3M research scientist with a vested interest. “After knee surgery, there were days when the tape caused me more pain than the surgery itself,” said Copeland. After three years, multiple experiments, trials, disappointments, and more than 300 different variations and combinations of adhesives and backing, the scientists launched the first of 3M’s superior medical tape products. 3M has supplied health care providers with the finest skin and wound care products ever since.2 © 3M 2011.

  • 3M™ Kind Removal Silicone Tape One of Kind Tape 3M™ Kind Removal Silicone Tape builds on 3M’s history of of innovation to bring you a new, silicone-based, adhesive technology that delivers reliable fixation and atraumatic removal in one easy-to-use, affordable tape. Unique characteristics make 3M™ Kind Removal Silicone Tape unlike any medical tape you’ve used before. Note: Studies have not evaluated 3M Kind Removal Silicone Tape for use as primary securement of critical tubing. 3M does not recommend it for this use. Clinical judgment is needed when making decisions about patient care.3 © 3M 2011. All Rights Reserved.
  • 3M™ Kind Removal Silicone Tape Care Without Compromise Freedom to Care More You want to give your patients the very best care and spare them from unnecessary discomfort. 3M™ Kind Removal Silicone Tape is a smarter medical tape with the ideal blend of properties to help you care for your patients who have fragile or at-risk skin. Security Offers reliable yet pliable fixation, remains in place until you decide otherwise. Comfort Removes cleanly, without disrupting fragile skin layers or causing patients any undue pain. Ease of Use Can be repositioned and neatly torn by hand. * From pre-market clinical evaluations4 © 3M 2011. All Rights Reserved.
  • 3M™ Kind Removal Silicone Tape Less Trauma, More Comfort Research confirms that upon removal, 3M™ Kind Removal Silicone Tape causes minimal epidermal cell stripping and less pulling of hair.2,18 Patients will feel the difference the moment it goes on... and comes off.5 © 3M 2011.

  • 3M™ Kind Removal Silicone Tape Ideal Securement Over Time 3M Kind Removal Silicone Tape provides the same adhesive strength you selected when you applied the tape, even after 48 hours of wear.2 This consistent adhesion level means the tape stays in place and removes gently every time. No worries, no surprises. Commercially Available Paper Tape Commercially Available Soft Cloth Tape 3M Kind Removal Silicone Tape6 © 3M 2011. All Rights Reserved.
  • 3M™ Kind Removal Silicone Tape How Is It Possible? Unique Performance Characteristics Less Force at Removal More “spring” means the energy of the bond can dissipate through the adhesive rather than through the skin. Removal of the tape does not cause the skin to pull up the same way it does with traditional adhesives. Ideal Adhesion Right From the Start Silicone adhesives have lower surface tension, allowing the silicone to conform quickly to the skin’s natural profile and create a secure bond immediately. The ideal adhesive level selected at application remains constant throughout wear time.7 © 3M 2011. All Rights Reserved.
  • 3M™ Kind Removal Silicone Tape Skin Injury is Occurring More Often Than You Think Injury to the epidermis affects at least 1.5 Konya reported that cumulative million patients annually in the U.S. incidence of skin injury caused by alone.4,23,31 The problem occurs across units tape removal may be as high as in the health care setting28 and its prevalence 15.5%.20 is expected to grow as the number of patients Pennsylvania Patient Safety Advisory with fragile skin continues to increase. reports that over a 1-year period, only hospital beds and patient Use of adhesive products such as tape can positioning were mentioned more exacerbate the risk of skin injury. often than tape as factors 3,5,7,11,26,27,28,33 contributing to skin tears.288 © 3M 2011.

  • 3M™ Kind Removal Silicone Tape The Cost Is High Patients who suffer skin trauma not only experience discomfort but they often require more nursing time, more materials, take longer to heal,21,32 and have increased risk of infection and chronic wounds.25 To prevent skin injury today, nurses often use skin protectants, adhesive removers, special applications and removal work-around techniques, or alternative products. These precautionary activities are costly in both materials and nursing time. Even with the extra steps to protect skin, tape-related abrasions occur 5.9% of the time.20 The cost to treat abrasions is significant. In fact, the cost of dressing an abrasion alone costs facilities at least $20.00 per patient and sometimes as much as $50.00.16,17 That results in $1.18 – $2.95 for every patient admitted to the facility. For patients whose injury becomes chronic, infected, or requires surgical intervention, the treatment cost is even higher. Additional treatments for chronic or infected wounds could include: debridement, wound irrigation, barrier ointment, cushioning, antimicrobials, and even surgical grafting.9 © 3M 2011.

  • 3M™ Kind Removal Silicone Tape Preventing Injury Makes Sense Prevention and treatment of tape-related skin damage are both costly and time-consuming. A standard hospital can spend an $19,185 per year managing tape risks and treatments.1,2,34,35 For patients whose injuries require debridement, wound irrigation, mobility treatment, cushioning, antimicrobials or surgical grafting, the costs are higher. 3M Kind Removal Silicone Tape lowers the overall cost of care by reducing the need for extra steps to protect skin and reducing the incidence of skin trauma. *Cost of 100 Fragile Skin Patients1,34,35 The costs of prevention/treatment before and after the introduction of 3M™ Kind Removal Silicone Tape were calculated using the cost per use of prevention/treatment and incidence. **Assuming 1:1 replacement of current tape product; will vary by specific products used.10 © 3M 2011.

  • 3M™ Kind Removal Silicone Tape Reducing Infection and Waste To combat cross-contamination, Federal and CDC guidelines increasingly suggest that some items, such as adhesive tapes, should not be shared between patients.15,19 As a result, infection prevention-conscious facilities often dedicate a single roll of tape to a single patient. With traditional rolls of tape, this results in up to 90% of the tape on a single roll being discarded. In other words, more than two miles of tape is wasted for every 1,000 patients discharged.1 That’s why 3M offers single-patient-use rolls so you can dedicate a roll to a single patient, preventing cross-contamination without creating excessive waste.11 © 3M 2011.

  • 3M™ Kind Removal Silicone Tape Reducing Inventory Costs “Supply chain costs consume as much as 40% of total operating budget, the second largest expense for hospitals.”12 Even small changes can have a significant effect on the bottom line, as much as 10-12% savings.12 As part of your facility’s overall efforts to optimize inventory through the reduction of SKUs, 3M Kind Removal Silicone Tape is an excellent choice for standardization because of its unique balance of properties. At 3M, we partner with you to provide the most versatile medical tapes available so you can manage inventory holding costs through SKU rationalization12 © 3M 2011. All Rights Reserved.
