Mastisol Liquid Adhesive is a valuable compound that helps protect wounds from infection by sealing the dressing to the skin and keeping it in place. Mastisol Liquid Medical Adhesive, by Eloquest Healthcare of Ferndale Labs, provides such an excellent wound seal that it is a leading medical liquid adhesive on the market. Mastisol is simply applied to a clean, non-broken skin area surrounding the wound. When the liquid adhesive tries for 20-30 seconds, the dressing, tape or device can be placed against the sticky skin surface.
Mastisol is a liquid medical adhesive. There are many applications for Mastisol, including affixing central line dressings, peripheral IV dressings, and securing indwelling catheters. Mastisol is also useful or keeping colostomy bags in one area of the skin so they do not fail prematurely. By keeping all the materials in one place, it will decrease the chance of infection and failure rate of the dressings, tapes or medical devices. Mastisol can also enhance the performance of other adhesive materials like tapes and adhesive bandages.
