Medline Marathon Liquid Skin Protectant is a non-cytotoxic cyanoacrylate film barrier that protects the skin from the effects of friction and moisture that can cause maceration. Marathon reacts with the moisture and skin surface to create a strong film that is thicker and more durable than most liquid skin protectants and stays on the skin until the dead cells are shed off naturally. Marathon Skin Protectant bonds to the skin surface and integrates with the epidermis as the cyanoacrylate polymerizes at the molecular level while supporting the natural integrity of the skin.

Why to use Marathon Liquid Skin Protectant?

  • Can be used on intact or damaged skin
  • Medline Marathon Skin Prep protects from moisture (urine, exudate, sweat, and other bodily fluids) that can cause maceration

  • Marathon shows greater protective capabilities than 3M Cavilon against corrosive fluids (synthetic urine) and wash-off
  • Minimizes friction and reduces the risk of developing skin tears
  • Marathon Skin Protectant creates a strong physical barrier against abrasive forces
  • Marathon Liquid Skin Protectant also recommended for damaged skin to protect against further breakdown
  • Marathon should be used on at-risk areas such as the sacrum, buttocks, and groin area

  2. Hold the Medline Marathon Skin Protectant upright with the sponge tip at the top. Crush the sealed inner tube by firmly squeezing the middle of the tube.
  3. If additional pressure is needed, include your other hand. Do not try to bend or snap the tube in half.

  5. Once the sponge is wet, slowly and gently spread a thin, even coat of Marathon that extends about 2.5 cm beyond the affected area.

Marathon No Sting Cyanoacrylate Skin Protectant User Manual

How does a Marathon work?

Marathon Cyanoacrylate Skin Protectant consists of individual molecules (cyanoacrylate-based monomers) that polymerize when they come in contact with moisture on the skin surface. This reaction continues until 100% of the monomer molecules have joined either to each other (cohesion) or to molecules of substances present in the skin (adhesion).
This type of bonding with skin ensures that the product remains in place until the epidermal cells naturally slough away, maintaining skin integrity. Because no solvents are used, there is no evaporation and 100% of the product remains on the skin.

When to change Medline Marathon?

  • Up to 3 days, reapply as needed


  • Second or third-degree burns
  • Infected areas
  • Directly to the wound bed, or to deep puncture wounds
