Product Details
  • Antimicrobial hydro-alginate dressing helping maintain a moist wound environment
  • Non-adherent
  • Antimicrobial action
  • Absorbent

This dressing is an antimicrobial hydroalginate dressing with EASYLIFT™ precision film Technology that enables pain-free removal1,2 and effective protection of the newly-formed tissue3 while minimising fibre detachment.1

This dressing acts against a broad spectrum of germs that are pathogenic to the wound, including MRSA, MRSE and VRE,1, 4 and destroys biofilms effectively in vitro5. This antimicrobial effect is secured by a sustained release of silver ions, lasting up to 7 days depending on wound condition and exudate level.1, 6

Non-woven pad composed of alginate, carboxymethylcellulose (CMC) and silver coated nylon fibres, with EASYLIFT™ Precision Film Technology built into a nonadherent wound contact layer.
