Mepitac® soft silicone tape featuring Safetac® technology balances secure fixation with personal comfort during wear and removal.  Mepitac® is preferred by nurses and patients because the proprietary Safetac® adhesive is designed to make dressing changes pain free.

Mepitac® can be cut to length using clean scissors.  Mepitac® is used to provide gentle, secure fixation of tubing and dressings.  If inspection or repositioning is needed, Mepitac® can be lifted and re-applied.  Mepitac® is gentle and can be used on sensitive skin.
