    3M™ Cavilon™ No Sting Barrier Film

    Cavilon No Sting Barrier Film is a versatile solution to help prevent skin breakdown before it happens and to protect already damaged skin from further injury.

     

    Adhesive trauma, body fluids, and friction can quickly break down skin. Cavilon No Sting Barrier Film is the original terpolymer based alcohol-free barrier film that provides protection from skin damage.

     

    Its unique formulation contains polymers that form a sting-free, waterproof, protective coating. It is breathable and transparent, allowing for continuous visualization and monitoring of skin. It is flexible and conforms to the skin during movement or position changes.

    Cavilon Durable Barrier Cream is a unique, moisturizing formula that provides a breathable barrier to promote skin health in patients at risk for skin damage.

     

    It is formulated with 3M polymers that make for a durable and comfortable solution for patients at risk of incontinence-associated dermatitis (IAD).

     

    The concentrated, fragrance-free cream requires less frequent application, resists washing off and allows the adhesive to work. This makes the care of your patient easier.

Skin Care Conditions

  • Medical Adhesive-Related Skin Injury (MARSI) refers to the red irritated skin that often occurs when medical adhesives are removed. It occurs across all care settings and age groups, often due to improper selection, application or removal of medical adhesives. This causes unnecessary pain to patient's and compromises skin integrity.

     

    With an impressive history in developing adhesive solutions, we at 3M have a unique understanding of how adhesives interact with skin. We use that knowledge to develop products to address patient needs in today’s care setting — and reduce the risk of MARSI.
