Dermaband Topical Skin Adhesive Mini
DERMABOND Adhesive is intended for topical application to hold closed easily approximated skin edges of wounds from surgical incisions and simple lacerations. Haemostasis should be achieved prior to application and the wound should be clean and dry.
It is recommended that DERMABOND Adhesive is applied in two layers. DERMABOND Adhesive is the only topical skin adhesive containing an initiator substance within its tip and is therefore the only one lending increased strength through layers.
DERMABOND Adhesive sets within 45 - 90 seconds following application, reaching a full mechanical strength in 2.5 minutes (equivalent to the strength of healed tissue at seven days). It can be wiped from the skin for up to 10 seconds after application.
DERMABOND sloughs off on its own within 5 - 10 days the skin re-epithelialises, eliminating the need for suture removal. DERMABOND Adhesive forms its own flexible and sterile water resistant
