3M medical tape for buddding or grafting

Has anyone used the 3M medical tapes used the same as Parafilm? Microapore,Blendderm, Transpore, Tegaderm are a few, some being breathable and made of paper. The charactoristics of some tapes looks good for budding? What do you think? Luke

My sister-in-law works for 3M in valley, Nebraska and wice a year they had a gargage sale for employee and family. I loaded it up on tegaderms and medical tapes in a brown paper sack for $10. I exclusively use tegaderm (water proof IV cover) on the graft union and medical tape over the tegaderm with 90 plus % took.

Tony, I had to get some testing done at the hospital this morning where I had an IV, this is where I saw the tape. The nurse gave me ssome samples to try out. Good to hear your results. Luke
