Gentle on your skin; it is the only surgical tape you will need.
Experience lesser skin damage with YU-KI Ban®
How YU-KI Ban® works on your skin
Skin surface when removing YU-KI Ban®
More stratum corneum removed (more skin damage)
Less stratum corneum removed (less skin damage)
General Surgical Tape
(uses conventional point adhesion)
YU-KI Ban® surgical tape
(with STRATAGEL® Technology)
Experiment 1 - Toilet Paper
Even when YU-KI Ban® is applied on the thin surface of a toilet paper, it does not damage the toilet paper.
Instead, the STRATAGEL® technology of the adhesive layer is gentle to peel off.
Experiment 2 - Onion Peel
Thin onion skin is also a perfect experimental material to mimic skin. When general surgical tape is peeled off the onion skin, the skin sticks aggressively to it.
YU-KI Ban® peels off easily, leaving the skin intact; like how it does not damage the keratin layer of skin.
Experiment 3 - Newspaper
General surgical tape sticks firmly but aggressively to surfaces, including skin. It has the ability to tear and damage thin layers of newspaper much like skin.
YU-KI Ban® peels off smoothly without damage, yet you can see it has stuck firmly to the newspaper print. However, it still peels off gently.
