Skin comfort and wear time are daily challenges ostomy patients can experience. Often times these issues can prevent those with with ostomy pouches from living an active lifestyle.
Hy-Tape is the solution to these concerns. When applied to clean, dry skin, Hy-Tape provides a waterproof protective seal around the edges of the appliance. Those who experience reactions to adhesives often find that our non-reactive qualities leave skin healthy and intact. Hy-Tape is latex free so those with latex allergies need not worry. The tape is thin and conforming which helps taping difficult areas. Our unique formula includes a zinc-oxide based adhesive which soothes the skin. Finally our tape is designed to release gently as the adhesive does not get any tackier as body temperature rises.
