NICHIBAN SKINERGATE MEDICAL TAPE
SKINERGATE™ is Made with a flexible and moisture-permeable polyolefin film and a highly moisture-permeable acrylic adhesives. This tape is extremely low-irritant. Attaching securely and easily cut by hand, it is good for gause fixing.
Sweat retained in surgical tape causes hydration of the skin, pH changes or an increase of bacteria, resulting in irritation. this tape is extremely moisture permeable, allowing minimal moisture retention even when applied for a long time. SKINERGATE™ keeps the skin dry and prevents irritation.
Protects the skin's natural barrier
The outermost layer of the skin is stratum corneum that serve as a barrier. Removing surgical tapes often strip away this layer, which can cause irritation. SKINERGATE™ is gentle enough to leave this layer intact while still fastening as securely as conventional surgical tapes. It causes minimal water retention in the skin or stripping of the stratum corneum layer even if left on for a long time. This tape makes removal less painful and protects the skin’s natural barrier, preventing irritation.
Responsive to the movements of the skin
Surgical tapes often cause a stress on the skin, causing irritation. The backing of SKINERGATE™ is a highly flexible polyolefin film that stretches easily and with minimal force, responding to the slightest movement of the skin. This tape removes the discomfort usually felt and reduces stress on the skin. The tape fits to the skin.
As strong as it is gentle, SKINERGATE™ attaches securely in a wide range of uses.
