Mefix Self Adhesive Fabric Dressing 10cm x 10m.
Mefix is the ideal fixation for dressings, swabs, catheters, and tubes. It provides secure fixation and the adhesive is gentle to the skin.
How Mefix works
The porous structure of the nonwoven fabric ensures air and water vapour permeability. The fabric is flexible, conforms well to body contours, and allows body movements when in place. The fabric is non-absorbent and provides a barrier for blood and fluid strikethrough.
The water-based polyacrylate adhesive has been designed to be
gentle to the skin and at the same time provide secure fixation.
The easy-to-remove protection paper is pre-measured in 10
cm intervals, and has a perforated split for easy removal and
application. Mefix can easily be cut to the desired shape and size.
Areas of use
Mefix can be used in a wide variety of situations where fixation is
required, including fixation of dressings, swabs, catheters, and tubes.
Benefits of Mefix
• Skin-friendly, water-based, solvent-free adhesive
• Pre-measured protection paper allows for convenient
measurement and cutting

Care should be taken to ensure that Mefix is not applied under
tension, to prevent shearing forces causing damage to the skin.
This is particularly important when applied over joints.
