Application Guide

Application Guide


  • While holding upright, squeeze the applicator wings until a cracking sound is heard


  • Invert the tip and gently squeeze wings to prime
  • When the tip fills with adhesive LiquiBand® Optima is ready to use
  • Ensure that wound is thoroughly clean and dry prior to closure


  • While holding the wound edges together, apply an even coat of LiquiBand® Optima over the length of the wound
  • Continue to hold the wound edges together for 30 seconds

NOTE: If being used in areas of dense natural hair, take care when applying as hair follicle damage may occur if over applied. If using on the eye area, adjust the patient’s position. Use petroleum jelly to create a barrier close to the wound, and use surgical gauze to protect the patient’s eyes.
