Marathon® Liquid Skin Protectant consists of a cyanoacrylate base that forms a strong protective layer over compromised skin. This wound care product can be used as a barrier to protect skin wounds, damaged skin, fragile skin, periwound skin and peristomal skin from friction, moisture, shear and adhesive stripping.Patients benefit from this skin glue because the Marathon Skin Protectant Wand:• Is robust and flexible• Causes no stinging sensation• Maintains breathable skin protection• Dries quickly• Is long lastingThis liquid cyanoacrylate skin protectant can also be used under medical devices if necessary.Marathon provides complete skin wound care due to the creation of a strong film that is thicker and more durable than most liquid skin protectants. This strong film is created when the cyanoacrylate base comes in contact with moisture on the skin’s surface. When the cyanoacrylate polymerises to the skin’s surface, the product remains on the skin and does not evaporate upon application.In order to maintain skin integrity for even longer periods of time, 100 per cent of the Marathon Liquid Cyanoacrylate Skin Protectant stays on the skin until the dead cells are shed naturally. This skin glue gives certainty to patients and their healthcare providers that they are thoroughly protected from further damage.
