Avery Dennison Medical  is one of the largest suppliers of adhesive-based surgical solutions to medical device OEMs. We offer a broad range of both incise films and drape tapes, with proprietary adhesives and differentiated performance characteristics, that cover the spectrum of surgical applications.


Incise Films

Incise films are adhesive plastic films (sometimes called incise drapes) which are used on the patient’s skin after the completion of surgical site preparation. Our incise film is a transparent, adhesive polyurethane that allows the skin to breathe, preventing moisture buildup under the film even in difficult or wet operating conditions.

The film adheres to the skin and isolates the surgical site from non-sterile areas that could increase the risk of a surgical site infection. The film on incise drapes creates a barrier to the patient’s skin flora. Research has shown the patient’s skin flora is a potential source of surgical site infection.
