MED 5030

Single-Coated Film

MED 5030 is a single-coated copolyester, soft, pliable, transparent film with an acrylic adhesive. This product's thin and conformable film offers a high degree of user comfort, while its transparency allows for wound or site visibility; in some applications, it can act as a barrier to assist in decreasing the risk of bacterial infections. This product contains a polypropylene support (casting) sheet to assist with handling and processing.

Typical Application

Designed for incise applications, wound care, IV securement and situations requiring high MVTR and sustained periods of wear.
