Re: [IP] Help! Need an adhesive that works!



Hi, I'm the one who thinks Tegaderm is great.  I just took off a Softset
after three days, and it was still stuck great.  My procedure is to shower
in the morning, then use only an alchol swab to further clean my skin. Then
insert the set and cover it with Tegaderm (with a hole cut in the middle).
I tape the tail down with a short peice of 3M Nexcare Soft Cloth Premium
Tape (Advanced holding power).  Thats it and it has lasted a full three days
of close to 100 degreeswith lots of physical activity that has destroyed all
the other tapes I have triedin as little as an hour.

Terry
