What to buy with Polymem Wic Silver


How Do Polymem Cavity Filler Work?

  • Silver Power: They have tiny silver particles that fight germs. When the bandage touches the wound's liquid, it releases the silver.
  • Bye-Bye Bacteria: This silver action kills almost all the bacteria in the wound.
  • Spread the Defense: It makes sure the silver covers a big area, so it fights germs all around and reduces how many germs are in the wound.
  • Gooey Goodness: The bandage turns into a gel, which is like a thick liquid. It can soak up a lot, up to 10 times its weight in liquid.
  • Clean and Clear: Along with PolyMem's other tricks, it helps clean the wound and get rid of yucky stuff. This happens without causing too much pain when changing the bandage.
