How does Marathon work?
Marathon reacts with the moisture andsurface to create a strong film that is thicker and more durable than most liquid protectants and stays on the until the dead cells shed off naturally.
What is a liquid skin protectant?
Medline Marathon Liquid Skin Protectant is a non-cytotoxic cyanocrylate film barrier that protects the skin from the effects of friction and moisture that can cause maceration. It bonds to the skin surface and integrates with the epidermis as the cyanoacrylate polymerizes at the molecular level while supporting the natural integrity of the skin. Marathon reacts with the moisture and skin surface to create a strong film that is thicker and more durable than most liquid skin protectants and stays on the skin until the dead cells shed off naturally.
What is Marathon used for?
Minimizes friction and reduces the risk of developing skin tears. Creates a strong physical barrier against abrasive forces. Also recommended for damaged skin to protect against further breakdown . Marathon should be used on at-risk areas such as the sacrum, buttocks and groin area.
Does Marathon Cavilon protect against corrosive fluids?
Non-stinging, contains no solvents or activators. Marathon shows greater protective capabilities than 3M Cavilon against corrosive fluids (synthetic urine) and wash-off. Minimizes friction and reduces the risk of developing skin tears.
Where to use Marathon?
Marathon should be used on at-risk areas such as the sacrum, buttocks and groin area. Healed wounds never attain the same breaking strength (the tension at which skin breaks) as uninjured skin. Applying Marathon to the skin once it has closed should help protect it and maintain integrity.
