What is Hy-Tape?
Hy-Tape is latex-free
Patients and health care providers with latex allergies can feel confident that Hy-Tape will provide maximum performance with no adhesive related reactions.
Hy-Tape is skin-friendly
Hy-Tape’s zinc oxide-based adhesive is soothing to delicate skin, and removes with minimum trauma, thereby reducing the chance of skin tears and tape burns. Hy-Tape eliminates the need for skin prep, and its thermal adhesion properties provide maximum adhesion at body temperature without becoming more aggressive as acrylic-based adhesive tapes do. Hy-Tape is perfect for extended-wear adhering securely to oily or hairy skin. It removes easily without discomfort or irritation, leaving little or no residue. With Hy-Tape, skin stays healthy and intact.
Hy-Tape is waterproof and washable
Hy-Tape provides complete security even when exposed to moisture from external sources or the skin itself. Able to adhere to both wet and oily skin without slipping or detaching, Hy-Tape wipes clean with soap and water for increased wear-time.
Hy-Tape has thermal properties
Hy-Tape has the unique quality of providing maximum adhesion when it reaches body temperature, without getting more aggressive or breaking down over time as acrylic-based adhesive tapes do.
