Autoclave tape is an adhesive tape used in autoclaving (heating under high pressure with steam to sterilise) to indicate whether a specific temperature has been reached.
Autoclave tape works by changing color after exposure to temperatures commonly used in sterilization processes, typically 121°C in a steam autoclave.
The adhesive is a pressure-sensitive adhesive designed to adhere to a variety of wraps, including woven, treated woven, non-woven, paper, and paper/plastic wraps to secure the pack during steam sterilization.
