Hypafix is a polyester non-woven backing which is air and moisture permeable allowing skin to breathe. It has good initial and long term adhesion ensuring dressings stay in place and it is easily cut to the required shape and size so has no unnecessary wastage. Its transverse stretch provides excellent conformability, even on contoured body areas such as the knee, elbow and shoulder. It has a low allergy polyacrylate adhesive.
It is ideal for holding dressings in place and as a base cover for patella taping. Can also be used for extra protection of tender foot areas and prevention of blisters. Use with TUFF TAN Rigid Zinc Oxide Strapping Tape or Leukotape P zinc oxide tape. White.
