Waterproof: You can go swimming or take a shower and this medical tape will stay on it.
Made of small holes: The polyurethane wound dressing is covered by a grid of small holes that give it some unique properties. Sweat and body fluids will pass right through it without causing it to fall off. Air can reach the skin below it. Its pores allow you to rip across and lengthwise in a straight line to custom widths.
Easy to tear: Unlike many cloth tapes, polyurethane tapes are easy to use with fingers horizontally and vertically.

While polyurethane tape is useful and versatile, it is not perfect for every application.
