Siltape is a bandaging tape designed to gently adhere to the skin without hurting the skin, which allows inspection or repositioning of wound and dressings. Silfix® technology has been designed to ensure a pain free removal or change of dressings.
Siltape is great for patients with fragile and sensitive skin, including aged care patients.
The tape should be washed in a bath of warm soapy water before reusing.
- Requires no scissors. Perforated, so just tear off needed length
- Atraumatic adhesion
- Retains adhesion when re-adhered
- Gentle with fragile skin
Siltape can be used in any situation where a regular adhesive tape would be used where friable or sensitive skin is an issue.
Siltape is a perfect solution to taping down eyelids for theatre. Glue based tapes are often used, these can be painful to remove and in some cases cause tissue damage or pull out eyelashes.
Siltape is great for securing IV lines and fistula needles as it can be repositioned with no loss of adherence and with atraumatic soft silicone, no tissue damage will occur.
Small incision sites such as biopsys can be covered with the soft silicone tape with no harm to the wound or surrounding skin.
Siltape is ideal for protecting friable tissue from pressure damage or sores from tubing; this is especially useful on the face and tops of ears. Siltape can be applied directly to the skin and tubing placed on top.
