Octopi 75
“Complementing our range of First Aid Dressing materials, we are happy to present a new substrate, Octopi 75, which is designed to help offer a new line of high end FADs” says John Telford, Head of Marketing for Smith & Nephew Extrdued Films.

The material is a super stretchy, soft feel, breathable polyurethane non-woven, offering conformability and comfort and creating a first aid dressing which can be used to protect even those hard to dress areas such as knuckles, knees and elbows.

It is available coated with an established, medical grade adhesive. We can supply bulk rolls or slit to your requirements.

Combine Octopi 75 with our wound pad 1438, pre-laminated with a low adherent skin contact net, to complete your premium dressing offering.

For samples of Octopi 75 or any of our other First Aid materials please contact us - details below.
