3M™ Cavilon™ No Sting Barrier Film

Gentle, effective and CHG-compatible solution for routine skin protection.

3M™ Cavilon™ No Sting Barrier Film is an alcohol-free barrier film that is applied to the skin without stinging. Featuring a unique blend of polymer chemistry, it is fastdrying and forms a non-sticky, sting-free, durable, long-lasting, waterproof protective coating that is breathable and transparent to allow for continuous visualization and monitoring of the skin. It is a non-cytotoxic barrier film with a low dermatitis potential that can be used on both intact and damaged skin, providing clinically supported skin protection against moisture-associated skin damage (MASD) and for IV and vascular access sites.

As a primary barrier against irritation from body fluids, it may be used on adults, children and infants over one month of age. It is flexible enough to conform to the skin during application and works even when applied over an area with bends or creases without requiring removal, making wear easier for patients and clinicians.

    Cavilon No Sting Barrier Film is ideal for routine protection of intact skin under adhesive products including vascular access dressings and devices, tape, wound dressings, and ostomy barriers. It can also be used as a protective barrier film around stomas, tracheostomies and wounds, and areas exposed to moisture, friction and shear.

Cavilon No Sting Barrier Film offers a variety of convenient and easy-to-apply wound care options including a wand, wipe and spray. It comes in an easy-to-open peel-down package that allows for aseptic delivery* and contains a unique blend of polymer and silicone fluid (or silicone oligomer). The additional silicone allows the film to flex with the skin and helps to maintain a continuous protective coating.
