Do you recommend or require skin prep before application?
No, we recommend a clean, dry surface before applying. Skin prep can either breakdown the adhesive or make it not function properly.
Is Hy-Tape UPF/SPF rated?
Hy-Tape is UPF rated 50+. That means it will protect sensitive or postoperative skin from the sun. UPF measures the amount of UV radiation that penetrates a fabric and reaches the skin. SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor and is the rating you’re familiar with for sunscreens and other sun-protective products.
Will Hy-Tape cause a reaction to those with sensitive skin or allergies?
Hy-Tape is latex free and has zinc oxide in the adhesive which is soothing to the skin. Hy-Tape is non-reactive and removes without compromising skin integrity. Download our instructions for use.
