Aquacel Foam Dressing Features

  • Features skin-friendly adhesive which supports simple application and removal
  • Water proof or bacteria barrier provides evaporation of excess moisture barrier against viral or bacterial penetration and allows patient to shower and bathe
  • Aquacel interface locks in wound exudate, including harmful components
  • Vertical wicking prevents lateral spread of fluid, reducing risk of maceration
  • Micro-contours to the wound bed, minimizing dead space where bacteria can grow
  • Gentle silicone border is designed to adhere to surrounding skin, not to the wound bed
  • Demonstrated low potential for dermal irritation or allergic contact sensitization

When to use Convatec Aquacel Foam Dressing?

  • Can also be used on a wide range of acute and chronic wounds that produce moderate to high volumes of exudate, including leg ulcers, pressure ulcers, diabetic foot ulcers, burns, traumatic injuries such as pretibial lacerations, surgical wounds healing by secondary intention, donor sites and for exudate management in fungating tumours
  • Can be applied to wounds producing lower volumes of exudate, such as skin tears, minor lacerations and cuts and left in situ for a maximum wear time of seven days
  • Suitable for a wide range of acute and chronic wounds producing exudate, regardless of the tissue within the wound bed
  • May be used immediately post-injury/wound breakdown and continued until healing, however, once a wound ceases to produce any exudate it will no longer be appropriate and an alternative dressing, such as a thin hydrocolloid, may be used

What do you need from your Foam Dressing?

Foam dressing helps reduce maceration. Vertical wicking locks exudate within the Aquacel layer of the dressing, which may reduce the risk of maceration of peri-wound skin†,2. This leg ulcer example shows how fluid is locked into the dressing and creates a mirror image on the Aquacel layer.
  • Protect Peri-wound skin against excoriation
  • Defend Against skin breakdown and maceration
  • Nurture Creates an environment to support wound healing

What to buy with Aquacel Foam


How does Hydrofiber Technology work?

Hydrofiber Technology is a patented technology in which fibres of high-quality cellulose are carboxymethylated altering its structure to allow better absorbency and retention of fluid. These fibres are then processed to mesh them together to form a stable fleece layer. When exposed to fluid, the fibres swell to form a clear, soft, cohesive gel structure that closely conforms to the wound bed.


Locks Exudate & Traps Bacteria

How Hydrofiber Technology Works?


Helps protect peri-wound skin and reduce maceration. It may help to minimize wound and cross-infection during removal


Micro-Contours to Wound Bed

How Hydrofiber Technology Works?


Minimizes “dead space” where bacteria can grow. It maintains moisture balance in the wound bed


Responds to wound fluid levels

How Hydrofiber Technology Works?


Forms a cohesive gel when in contact with exudates. It provides rapid and sustained antimicrobial activity on demand (dressings with ionic silver)
