Features and Benefits: • Nonwoven, rayon-backed material reinforced with filaments for strength. • Microporous material is breathable. • Hypoallergenic adhesive. • Provides wound support and assists in increasing the tensile strength of the wound. • Provides better cosmetic outcome than sutures or staples. • Permits early staple/suture removal. • Allows finer wound edge approximation. Suggested applications • Reinforced 3M Steri-Strip Skin Closures are used in the closure of lacerations, surgical incisions and following early suture/staple removal.
