How Mepitel Film works
Mepitel® Film maintains a moist environment even though the vapour permeability allows excess moisture pass away from the skin. Mepitel Film® provides instant tack adhesion that minimises the requirement of extra pressure to fixate well.Mepitel Film can not be used as primary fixation for IV, cannulae, ports or other infusion and or life sustaining devices.
