Medical tape should be applied evenly without degumming, leaking, and backside leaking. When unwinding, there must be no peeling or delamination of the adhesive layer. The peel strength of the medical tape should not be less than 1.0N/cm. The holding viscosity should not be greater than 2.5mm. The ratio of the recovery length to the full extension length of the elastic medical tape should not be more than 80%. When the water-blocking medical tape is tested according to YY/T 0471.3-2004, there should be no water seepage. When the comfortable medical tape is tested according to YY/T 0471.4-2004, the stretchability is not more than 14N/cm. When tested according to YY/T 0471.4-2004, the permanent deformation should not exceed 5N/cm.
