Siltape - Soft Silicone Adhesive Tape (2cm x 3m)
- 2cm x 3m
Siltape is a silicone bandaging tape designed to gently adhere to the skin without hurting the skin, which allows inspection or repositioning of wound and dressings.
Silfix® technology ensures atraumatic removal/change for dressings which can greatly alleviate pain for a patient.
Siltape can be applied directly to the skin and tubing placed on top. Siltape can also be used for scar management.
- Requires no scissors. Perforated, so just tear off needed length
- Atraumatic adhesion
- Retains adhesion when re-adhered
- Gentle with fragile skin
Siltape can be used in any situation where a regular adhesive tape would be used where friable or sensitive skin is an issue.
Siltape is a perfect solution to taping down eyelids for theatre. Glue based tapes are often used, these can be painful to remove and in some cases cause tissue damage or pull out eyelashes.
Siltape is great for securing IV lines and fistula needles as it can be repositioned with no loss of adherence and with atraumatic soft silicone, no tissue damage will occur.
Small incision sites such as biopsys can be covered with the soft silicone tape with no harm to the wound or surrounding skin.
Siltape is ideal for protecting friable tissue from pressure damage or sores from tubing; this is especially useful on the face and tops of ears. Siltape can be applied directly to the skin and tubing placed on top.

Unfortunately this product didn’t stay completely secure on my skin, lifting in many places after having a tummy tuck. Disappointed in my experience as this product is not cheap.
Self adhesive so it stays in place. Has helped with my scarring.
It is not good on arms as is rolls up
This is the second time I buy it. Is a great product, easy to use and you can tell it helps with a better scarring process
Love the tape
I just had a kidney transplant a month ago and I purchased this product as the wound was puckering and contorting. I left on just the one strip for a week and only needed to tape down the very ends by day 4 - this stuff sticks! I will post back with long term results, but I refreshed the tape yesterday and it looks like a different wound. It's almost completely flat and the inflammation has gone down significantly. My partner and I can't believe it. Even if it does nothing for long term scar reduction, it's had a huge impact on the recovery time of the wound itself. Only cons I can think of are that the tape itself is more like 1.5cm wide, not 2cm. The non stick backing that you discard is about 2cm. This seems a little dishonest to me and I was a bit disappointed. Also it's not the cheapest product once you're also paying for shipping, but I'm not so fussed about that as each individual application seems to last so long, realistically with the ends taped down I could have left it for 10+ days. So in a way it's still quite cost effective.
After using an expensive silicone gel I thought I would give this a try. The perforations make it easy to year to the right length, it’s easy to apply and.... get this.... you can even shower with it on!!! I’ll be recommending this to thousands via fb.
I absolutely love this product, I'll definitely be ordering more.
Excellent product for helping people with medical problems, esp Facial Palsy when keeping eye closed at night safely keeping eye sight unaffected, will be ordering more to my home address as I'm disabled and not available in any local shops safe to leave in mail box
