Medical Application: 

Mavidon Collodion HV is utilized to attach electrodes to the skin or scalp, primarily for EEG monitoring (Ambulatory, Epilepsy, Sleep Disorders). It proves particularly useful when it is crucial to maintain secure contact for monitoring. Moreover, even on hairy, oily, or perspiring skin, when applied correctly, collodion effectively holds.

While some users have their preferred method of application (Patient Preparation), the manufacturer recommends the following steps:

Firstly, clean the surface to be bonded to remove body oils and dead skin. Next, apply a thin layer of Collodion to the electrode or gauze. Finally, to facilitate curing, force clean cool air over the electrode with an air pump to aid solvent evaporation.

Astronomy Application:

Collodion is used in the cleaning of optics, such as telescope mirrors. According to the manufacturer’s recommendations, Collodion is applied to the optic’s surface, often in multiple layers, with the occasional interposition of a thin cloth to ease removal. Once dry, the collodion forms a solid sheet covering the optic. Consequently, it can be carefully peeled away, removing contamination with it.
