    3M™ Silvercel™ Dressing is a sterile, non-woven pad composed of a high G (guluronic acid) alginate, carboxymethylcellulose (CMC) and silver coated nylon fibres.

    The excellent fluid absorption ability and the lasting antimicrobial activity make this dressing the ideal dressing for chronic wounds1,2 with moderate to high levels of exudate. The unique composition of the dressing means fluid is absorbed from moderately to heavily exuding wounds while maintaining a moist wound environment conducive to healing. 1 Clark R, Del Bono M, Stephens S-A et al.
