How Mefix Works
The porous structure of the nonwoven fabric ensures air and water vapor permeability. The fabric is flexible, confirms well to body contours, and allows body movements when in place. The fabric is nonabsorbent and provides a barrier for blood and fluid strike-through.
The water-based polyacrylate adhesive has been designed to be gentle to the skin and at the same time provide secure fixation.
Easy-to-remove protection paper (1" Mefix is not perforated at 4" intervals like all other sizes of Mefix).
Mefix is made of a porous, polyester elastic nonwoven coated with a skin-friendly polyacrylate adhesive providing secure fixation. It is protected by an easy-to-remove release liner.
Benefits of Mefix

- Pre-measured release paper allows for convenient measurement/cutting

Areas of Use
Mefix can be used in a wide variety of situations where fixation is required, including fixation of dressings, catheters, cannualae, and tubes.
NOTE: 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.
