Super absorbent dressing with soft silicone contact layer.
The soft silicone layer provides gentle adherence and will not stick to a wound or damage the surrounding skin or hair.
Backing layer: The backing layer is non-strikethrough, preventing leaks. It has a high moisture vapour transfer rate (MVTR) to further improve its exudate management capabilities and is water resistant, bacteria- and viral-proof.
Sub-backing layer: The sub-backing layer helps to retain the dressing’s shape, encouraging even distribution of exudate within the CrystaLock layer and preventing sagging.
CrystaLock layer: The CrystaLock layer absorbs exudate and locks it within the dressing to prevent leakage. Infection-causing bacteria are also locked away with the exudate.
Rapid wicking layer: The rapid-wicking layer quickly draws exudate from the wound bed. The wicking rate is optimized to ensure the wound doesn’t dry out and that periwound maceration is avoided. Exudate is delivered into the CrystaLock layer.
