Mastisol icon Mastisol Overview

Reduce the likelihood of dressing or device migration or accidental removal and minimize the risk of infection by creating a lasting occlusive dressing barrier by incorporating Mastisol, an adjunct liquid adhesive, into your dressing securement protocols.

Unlike tincture of benzoin, Mastisol liquid medical adhesive goes on clear, is non-staining and has a lower risk of adverse reactions (contact dermatitis).[1] Its non-water solubility means it will keep your dressings secure even in the moistest environments.

“Mastisol was the only product able to hold the {device} system on the patient…it was easy to use and did not burn or hurt the patient.”

– Diana B., RN, Falls Church VA

“This product is really making a difference in patient care. The tape {used to secure the NG tube} kept sliding down the patient’s nose {due to their oily skin and} put the patient at risk of aspiration. When Mastisol was used…problem solved.”

– Lori M., RN, Dearborn MI

“I have had numerous years of experience with Mastisol. It is easy to use and has superior adhesive qualities. I have never heard any complaints about the product, either from practitioners or patients.”

– Beverly B., Clinical Educator, Phoenix, AZ
