Securing Hydrocolloid Dressings

Hydrcolloid dressings require a tape that is occlusive and can stand up to external fluids and contaminants. Our Hy-Tape rolls and Pre-Cut Strips are great for picture framing dressings and our Hy-Tape Patches can make the entire dressing occlusive. This level of protection not only keeps sensitive areas clean, but allows the dressing to stay clean thanks to Hy-Tapes unique qualities. When covered with a Hy-Tape Patch, the entire area can be washed with soap and water without compromising adhesion or the dressing beneath. Hy-Tape is Latex-free, zinc oxide based and non-allergenic. Most importantly, it won’t break down over time, so surrounding skin remains healthy and unaffected by incontinence.
