Hy-Tape is known as the Original Pink Tape used for allergy sensitive patients for extended wear applications. Hy Tape is skin friendly Cloth Tape that is a good match for delicate skin. With a zinc oxide-based adhesive, HyTape® removes from the skin with minimal trauma to the patient. Hy Tape’s construction reduces the chance of skin tears and tape burns. Thin and flexible, Hy Tape conforms to the body’s contours and easily shrinks or expands with underlying tissue. Waterproof and washable with soap and water, Hy Tape Medical Tape continues to provide a secure covering when exposed to external moisture as well as wet and oily skin without slipping or detaching. Hy-Tape is able to resist soiling from secretions because of its superior occlusive properties. Hy-Tape has the unique quality of providing maximum adhesion when it reaches body temperature, without getting stickier or breaking down over time as acrylic-based adhesive tapes do.
This is a great tape, gentle on skin. We use it for my dads urostomy to hold it in place. Its water proof and gentle in removal.

I bought "Cica-Care" gel strips from you for wound care (prior to removal of facial moles at the suggestion of an RN friend) but having trouble affixing/keeping them in place, even with the enclosed free sample of HypaFix mesh/adhesives (due to facial oils? location of moles on the creases of face? Not sure). Having tried literally everything else short of superglue with zero success, phoned your company who suggested this HyTape; not finding it anywhere locally (Walgreens pharmacy hadn't even heard of it), had to purchase thru VitalityMedical. This doesn't work either, i.e., does not hold gel strips in place/keep coming off, regardless of how much i paste on there. The product price was minimal ($2.00) but the shipping price was utterly outrageous (NINE dollars for a half-ounce product). I won't be using your company again.

Hy Tape was recommended by my wound care nurse and worked fairly well, but wasn't as water proof as they claim.
Doesn't stick well at all

The tape doesn't stick well at all. It comes off the skin way too easily. And it didn't come with the plastic spool it was supposed to have.
I have been using the pink Hy tape for 22 years and could not do without it, it gives me a sense of sercurity and decreases the wear on your waffer.

This tape has been the best thing in the world. Not only does it hold its shape but it helps to keep the infection at bay. Plus, it is strong enough to stay in place but less painful to remove. This way it does not harm the skin and leave red marks when you take it off.
