No Sting Barrier Film

Cavilon No Sting Barrier Film is the original alcohol-free barrier film and is intended to protect skin from body fluids, adhesives and friction. It is composed of a unique 3M terpolymer that forms a breathable, transparent protective coating on the skin. The polymer is dissolved in a solvent system that makes the product fast drying and non-sticky. It also contains a plasticizer that assists in forming a continuous film even when applied over an area that bends or creases. It is non-cytotoxic and hypoallergenic allowing use on intact or damaged skin.

Description

Cavilon No Sting Barrier Film is an alcohol-free moisture barrier film. It contains unique ingredients called polymers that form a waterproof, protective coating on the skin. It is breathable and transparent allowing for continuous visualisation and monitoring of skin. It is flexible and conforms to the skin during movement or position changes.

The products’ unique 3M formulation contains a blend of not one but two polymers, including a Terpolymer and a Homopolymer (plasticiser). The Terpolymer is derived from three distinct monomers, that provides a protective coating on the skin, creating a highly effective barrier. The Homopolymer enhances the films ability to flex with the skin and helps to maintain a continuous, protective coating. Other barrier films contain only one polymer and some utilise alcohol as a solvent.

Protects damaged or intact skin from:

  • body fluids
  • friction
  • adhesive trauma
  • incontinence
