Mepitac is a conformable self adhesive tape that consists of a conformable non-woven fabric coated on one surface with a soft silicone adhesive. The outer surface of the dressing is coated with a semipermeable polyurethane film that is impermeable to liquids and micro-organisms.
This soft silicone layer provides secure fixation but does not cause epidermal stripping or pain on removal.
Mepitac is designed for fixing medical devices such as drains, tubes, probes, electrodes, IV cannulae and dressings. It may also be used to provide protection to the skin over sensitive areas beneath devices such as tubes.
The dressing is especially useful for individuals with fragile or sensitive skin such as very young infants, the elderly, or patients who require the frequent application of and removal of tape over the same area for example neonates or dialysis patients.

Purchased as a scar reduction treatment. Very impressed with delivery - super fast. Remains sticky after several days of use. Like that it is flesh colored (don't have to look at my big ugly scar, for now). Lots on the roll which makes it more cost effective vs. other options. Has been too soon to determine if it is going to be effective in minimizing the scar appearance.
