Mastisol Liquid Skin Adhesive is a clear, non-irritating liquid adhesive used to hold dressings, wound closure strips, tapes, and some medical devices. Mastisol is a non-water soluble, ensuring the integrity of dressings and devices on diaphoretic patients or in moist environments. Mastisol topical skin adhesive reduces the likelihood of dressing or device migration or accidental removal and minimize the risk of infection by creating a lasting occlusive dressing barrier. Mastisol liquid medical adhesive goes on clear, is non-staining and has a lower risk of adverse reactions (contact dermatitis).(1) Mastisol reinforces the dressing barrier and/or prevents catheter movement to minimize the risk of infection.(2)
