MED 5590U

Single-Coated Film

MED 5590U is a single-coated, soft, pliable, transparent polyurethane film with a solventless acrylic adhesive. This product’s thin and conformable film offers a high degree of user comfort, while its transparency allows for wound or site visibility; in some applications, it can act as a barrier to assist in decreasing the risk of bacterial infections.


Typical Application

Designed for incise applications, wound care, IV securement and situations requiring very high MVTR and sustained periods of wear.
