3M™ Dermatac™ Drape

3M™ Dermatac™ Drape is the first, single-use, proprietary silicone-acrylic hybrid drape that is used as an accessory to NPWT systems. Constructed with a precise combination of silicone and acrylic to conform to different anatomical locations. Adapts to the body and provides a tight, highly-effective seal for 48 to 72 hours. Low-tack silicone adhesive allows for repositioning and skin-friendly dressing removal, while the high-tack acrylic adhesive helps keep silicone against the skin.

When 3M™ Dermatac™ Drape is used on open wounds, it is intended to create an environment that promotes wound healing. 3M™ Dermatac™ Drape is designed for use as a secondary or tertiary (delayed primary) intention by preparing the wound bed for closure, reducing edema, promoting granulation tissue formation and perfusion and by removing exudate and infectious material. Open wound types include: chronic, acute, traumatic, subacute and dehisced wounds, partial-thickness burns, ulcers (such as diabetic, pressure, or venous insufficiency), flaps, and grafts.

When used on closed surgical incisions, it is intended to manage the environment of surgical incisions that continue to drain following sutured or stapled closure by maintaining a closed environment and removing exudates via the application of negative pressure wound therapy.


• Do not place foam dressings of the V.A.C. Therapy System directly in contact with exposed blood vessels, anastomotic sites, organs, or nerves.
Note: Refer to Warnings section of IFUs for additional information concerning bleeding or osteomyelitis.
• V.A.C. Therapy is contraindicated for patients with:
• Malignancy in the wound
• Untreated osteomyelitis
• Non-entric and unexplored fistulas
• Necrotic tissue with eschar present
NOTE: After debridement of necrotic tissue and complete removal of eschar, V.A.C. Therapy may be used.
