    I found this on a 3M website. Hope it helps.

    Micropore tape is excellent for repeated applications on sensitive skin and elderly patients. It allows for moisture evaporation and skin to breathe and leaves minimal adhesive residue upon removal. Micropore tape is available in a dispenser pack for easy tear and convenience. Excellent for general-purpose taping. It is available in white or tan.


    Gentle to the skin.
    Highly breathable to maintain skin integrity.
    Holds well on damp skin.
    Latex free

    Might be latex free, but I can't tolerate micropore (no probs with elastoplast or sleek, the usual suspects)

    We have a latex-free tray that we order up for our patients.
