Product Details
  • Antimicrobial
  • A fast and powerful silver technology

This dressing is a gelling fiber silver dressing that uses the combination of an enhanced carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC) dressing and the advanced silver technology – Ag OXYSALTS™ Technology - to create the optimal wound healing environment.

This dressing is the only gelling dressing with Ag OXYSALTS™ Technology (Ag3+), providing up to 6 times more power than traditional silvers (Ag1+) *1:

  • Kills bacteria within a biofilm and prevents biofilm re-formation*,2
  • Quickly kills at least 99.999% (5 log) of a broad spectrum of bacteria*,3,4

A proven substrate, this dressing is a carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC) gelling fiber dressing designed to help create the optimal healing environment*:

  • Quickly absorbs and locks away exudate and its harmful components5,6
  • Micro-contours to the wound bed to eliminate dead space where bacteria can live7
  • Designed to reduce the risk of periwound maceration6
  • Strong enough to be removed in one piece8
