Usage Mepilex® Film


  1. Clean the skin carefully, e.g. with a mild soap and rinse with water. Dry the skin thoroughly.
  2. Remove the release film (printed). Apply the sticky side to the wound/ skin, ensuring a good seal.
  3. Film should overlap the dry surrounding skin by at least ½ – 1 inch. Do not stretch.
  4. Film can be repositioned as long as the paper frame is intact. Remove the paper frame.

* Do not use moisturizers, gels or ointments on the skin surrounding the wound because Safetac® adheres best to clean, dry skin.
