Silicone Foam Dressing

Silicone Foam Dressing

The five-layer foam dressing is an absorbent, self-adherent, soft silicone wound dressing available in a border and non-border version. It comprises of a breathable silicone wound contact layer designed for atraumatic removal, a polyurethane foam and superabsorbent fiber composite pad with high absorption capacity and a vapor-permeable, water- and bacteria-resistant polyurethane film outer layer. The silicone wound contact layer is perforated and is protected by a folded, transparent, embossed LDPE liner. On the bordered dressing, the silicone adhesive and polyurethane film extend beyond the perimeter of the composite pad to form an adhesive border.


Typical Application

The product is contraindicated for ulcers resulting from infections such as tuberculosis, syphilis or deep fungal infections.
