  • Broad-spectrum effectiveness provides protection against gram negative, gram positive and fungi/yeast micro-organisms including MRSA and VRE
  • Limits cross-contamination from patient to patient, patient to clinician, and patient to the environment
  • Resists bacterial colonisation within the dressing and helps prevent infections from growing and spreading in the dressing
  • Reduces bacterial penetration through the dressing to help minimise infection exposure from strikethrough

  • Non-adherent to allow for new tissue growth without interrupting the healing process. Allows for pain free removal.
  • Will not adhere to sutures, staples or steri-strips
  • Absorbent core offers light to moderate absorbency to remove excess fluid from the wound site
  • Conformable and comfortable to wear
