Mepitac Soft Silicone Tape is highly conformable and easy to both apply and remove. The Safetac technology layer ensures secure fixation and gentle atraumatic removal from skin and hair. If inspection or repositioning is necessary, Mepitac can be lifted and reapplied.

Mepitac is an ideal fixation solution for patients with fragile and sensitive skin, and for those with allergies to traditional adhesives. Mepitac is also suitable for patients requiring repeated application and removal of tape over the same area, e.g. neonates and dialysis patients.
