HyTape patches have the same qualities as the original HyTape but in a faster and easier-to-use application. These are perfect for making hydrocolloid wound dressings completely occlusive. These bandages save time and money by reducing the need to change dressings less often and they create a waterproof barrier too. No scissors required. Skin prep is not required to use these bandages. The skin should be clean and oil-free before application.
