Mepitac Silicone Tape

Mepitac Silicone Tape




Mepitac is a highly conformable, easy to apply and remove fixation tape designed to fix medical devices such as drains, tubes, probes, electrodes, IV cannulae and dressings gently to the skin. It’s suitable for patients with fragile or sensitive skin.  With Safetac technology the silicone adhesion is specifically designed to minimise pain and trauma when it’s applied and removed. It’s suitable for neonates, dialysis patients and others who need repeated application of the fixation tape over the same area.

Benefits of Mepitac

  • Atraumatic to the skin on removal
  • Conforms well to body contours
  • Leaves no residue
  • Shower-proof Polyurethane film backing
  • Breathable
  • Easy to cut
  • Mepitac can be lifted and adjusted without loss of adherent properties

The adhesion of Mepitac may decrease when used in humid conditions such as incubators or on patients who are diaphoretic. Mepitac is not suitable for fixation of arterial catheters and arterial cannulae
