Features & Benefits
Hydrogel Adhesive Border is clear, hypoallergenic, moisturizing, conforming, and easy to adjust as necessary. The clear border allows for assessment of peri-wound skin without having to remove dressing. The 1” wide border provides a larger and more conforming barrier around the wound site to better prevent infection. If stuck to itself during application, the hydrogel can be separated and still adhere well.
Clear Substrate is permeable to oxygen and moisture vapor while protecting wound from water, bacteria, and dirt. This layer can be marked with dates, initials, and arrows for direction of removal.
Absorbent Pad is non-stick allowing for exudate to be absorbed without causing additional trauma upon removal. The white pad allows for better assessment of exudate.
Clear-on-clear Packaging makes for easy dressing size selection and includes a printed ruler for wound measurement and documentation.
