3M Kind Removal Silicone Tape
The adhesive in most medical tape gets its stickiness from a compound called acrylate, which seeps into skin and sets, making for painful removal. Tape treated with 3M's non-setting silicone adhesive comes off easily and stays sticky for reuse. Simon Fung, the tape's developer, calls it "a Post-it note for your body." $7/roll
Can this adhesive be made more tacky or less tacky? Is there a double sided tape? Is this adhesive waterproof and/or water resistant? Can this adhesive be applied without the tape and what special equipment or glue gun is needed for application? Where can this be purchased? What is the length of time it can be in contact with skin? Is this product similar to NuSil Technology's MED-6342, if so what are the similarities and differences?
Are test samples available?
