SKINERGATETM MESH 

SKINERGATE™ MESH is a low-irritant non-woven fabric tape. This tape consists of flexible and moisture-permeable non-woven fabric, and moisture-permeable acrylic adhesives. This tape attaches securely in a wide range of uses.

Precautions​
  • Overextension of tape may cause irritation of the skin.

  • Do not apply directly to a wound.

  • Discontinue use if a rash, redness or irritation of the skin.

  • Remove slowly along the hair line so as not to damage the skin.

Key features
  • High moisture permeability
    Its high moisture permeability means that it does not retain sweat even during prolonged use. 

  • Responsive to the movements of the skin
    The flexible non-woven fabric tape responds to the movements of the skin. 

  • Secure adhesion
    A flexible adhesive is used for greater adhesion. 

  • Reduced pain during removal 
    The outermost layer, stratum corneum, is often stripped by surgical tapes, which can cause irritation. High moisture permeability of SKINERGATE™MESH prevents moisture retention in the skin, meaning that almost none of the barrier layer is removed. This makes removal less painful and protects the skin’s natural barrier, preventing irritation.

Storage
  • Keep dry and store at room temperature, avoiding excessive heat and humidity and direct sunlight.
