    Well, they say it's medical grade and are practically like bandages.

    Re: The chemicals in the adhesive

    I was wondering the same to but i have heard no complaints or side effects so far.

    Has anyone else heard of anything?

    I just figured this would have less side effects than propecia,minoxidil and not to mention the butchery of hair transplant. This is definitely the better way, i am enjoying my piece these days.

    Penis killer propecia and Minoxidil 10% are pretty bad to, no to mention the cruel hair transplant surgery. Those stuff are stronger than glue.

    However what does super tape contain, does it have Tolein?

    the tape don't contains toluene...just some glues like ultrahold, davlyn and some others....white glue don't contains toluene.

    The research is some what shocking. This is an study on the use of topical toluene!!

    However the toluene in tapes evaporates after only a few minutes, so its not the same as constant topical exposure?

    So far i have not found any medical grade tapes on the net, i cant find any 3M tape retailer either, if anyone has a link it would be very helpful.

    As long as the tape or glue is medical grade then you should have no worries regarding chemicals.
    Also be very aware of unethical scaremongering from certain quarters to put you off wearing as opposed to the surgery route!
    Sad i know but it does go on!
