Mefix can be used in a wide variety of situations where fixation is required such as the fixation of dressings, catheters, and tubes.
The porous structure of the non-woven fabric ensures air and water vapor permeability. The fabric is flexible, conforms well to body contours, and allows body movements when in place. The fabric is non-absorbent and provides a barrier for blood and fluid.
The Polyacrylate adhesive has been designed to be gentle to the skin and at the same time provide secure fixation. The easy-to-remove protection paper is pre-measured in 4 in. intervals and has a perforated split for easy removal and application. Mefix can easily be cut to the desired shape and size.
Mefix is made of a porous, polyester elastic non-woven coated with a skin friendly polyacrylate adhesive providing secure fixation. It is protected by an easy-to-remove, pre-measured release liner.
