Barrier Film

Barrier Film

Barrier film is a sterile polymeric solution that forms an even film when applied to the skin using spray, swab (foam applicator) or wipe. The product is dispersed in a non-stinging solvent that dries rapidly to form a film that is colorless, transparent and shows good permeability for oxygen and water vapor. Barrier film helps protect intact or damaged skin from irritation that may arise from urinary and/or fecal incontinence, digestive juices, fluid draining from wounds, adhesives and frictional forces.  

Typical Application

Designed to protect intact or damaged skin from bodily fluids, adhesives and friction in the areas of peristomal and periwound skin protection, incontinence skin care and adhesive trauma prevention.
