Derma-tac™ silicone prosthetic adhesive is a pressure sensitive adhesive designed for temporarily adhering silicone and latex makeup prosthetic appliances to the skin.
Derma-tac™ is skin safe and certified by an independent laboratory. This is a low odor formulation which is cosmetic grade and non-irritating.
Note: If adhering appliances created without a cap plastic membrane and made using Ecoflex™ silicone, using Skin Tite™ skin safe silicone adhesive will produce a better bond.
Important: Shake Derma-tac™ container well before using.
Preparation - Clean the skin with soap and water to remove any oils which may affect the bond of the Derma-tac™ adhesive. Allow skin to dry completely.
APPLICATION & REMOVAL...
Accelerating / Lowering Viscosity – Drying time can be reduced with NOVOCS Gloss Silicone Solvent. Adding 10% NOVOCS gloss by weight will lower viscosity and reduce dry time by about ½.
Application - Derma-tac™ adhesive can be applied using a cotton swab, non-latex makeup sponge or suitable makeup brush. Apply adhesive to the surface of the skin or appliance. When applying on areas of high stretch or movement, such as around the mouth, adhesive can be applied to both the skin and the appliance.
Important: Allow Derma-tac™ to evaporate completely. This adhesive will not work unless it has thoroughly dried. Once Derma-tac™ has dried, press the makeup appliance in place. Derma-tac™ is a pressure sensitive adhesive, the firmer you press, the better the adhesive bond.
