How It Works

Easy to Apply. Designed to Seal.

As applied to skin, Derma+Flex® is syrup-like in viscosity and polymerizes quickly—usually in less than 60 seconds. It is a sterile, topical adhesive blending 60% 2-octyl cyanoacrylate and 40% n-butyl cyanoacrylate into a formulation providing the most desirable properties of each. The increased viscosity of Derma+Flex® is formulated to reduce the risk of unintended placement of the adhesive during application due to migration of the liquid adhesive from the wound site.

Directions For Use

Easy application. Effective formula.

Step 1:

To open Derma+Flex® High Viscosity Medical Tissue Adhesive, simply screw on the applicator tip just like screwing a nut on a bolt until finger tight. While holding applicator tip in one hand in an upright position, finish twisting tube in a clockwise motion until applicator is tight and seal is punctured (a purple dot will appear on applicator tip). Derma+Flex®  has no glass ampules to crush and squeeze, eliminating any chance of glass puncture to user.

Step 2:

While holding tube upright, away from the patient, prime the applicator tip by squeezing tube from the bottom and continue to flatten tube moving all adhesive to the top of the tube until the applicator is colored purple. Adhesive is now ready to be applied to skin.

Step 3:

While holding the flattened part of the tube, begin “painting” the area of the skin that requires adhesive in a back and forth motion, covering the entire surface of the approximated skin edges as well as the area around the edges. This ensures a proper seal is formed to create a larger microbial and waterproof barrier, while also providing additional closure strength. Take care not to apply adhesive too thickly as this will increase the cure time.

Step 4:

When applied correctly, Derma+Flex® will polymerize (dry) in less than 60 seconds. After Derma+Flex®  has fully polymerized (dried), a bandage may be applied to the area – but is not necessary as the adhesive forms a microbial and waterproof barrier over the wound site.
