What to buy with Molnlycke Mepilex Foam Dressing

Mepilex Self-Adherent Foam Dressing Construction

Safetac technology layer Reduces pain and trauma during dressing changes
  • Does not adhere to the moist wound bed, only to dry skin
  • Seals the wound margins and reduces risk of maceration

Polyurethane backing film
  • Moisture vapor permeable
  • Moisture proof
  • Bacteria and viral barrier
Multi-layered absorbent foam pad
  • Retention layer stores exudate
  • Non-woven layer spreads and retains fluid
  • Absorption layer transfers exudate to layers above
Improved fluid handling
  •  Reduces risk of leakage and maceration

How does Mepilex Border Foam Dressing work?

  • Mepilex Border foam dressing has excellent fluid handling properties because of the following:
    • Safetac technology layer - seals around wound/incision margins
    • Absorption layer - ensures quick and effective absorption
    • Spreading layer - spreads the exudate into the retention layer
    • Retention layer - impedes exudate from being pushed back into the skin to reduce the risk of maceration
    • Backing film - highly breathable; moisture and bacteria proof to protect the wound from outer contamination

When to use Molnlycke Mepilex Foam Dressing?

  • Treatment of moderate to highly exuding wounds such as:
    • Pressure ulcers
    • Leg and foot ulcers
    • Traumatic wounds (e.g., skin tears and secondary healing wounds)
    • Aid in the prevention of skin damage
    • Surgical incisions

Note: In case of signs of infection, consult a healthcare professional for treatment

Safetac Technology Benefits:

Safetac is a patented soft silicone adhesive technology. Safetac technology drastically reduces both the pain and tissue damage in wound management. The healing process is accelerated without the trauma of maceration, blistering and skin-stripping. Mepilex Border Safetac technology cause minimal tissue injury during wear and upon removal. It minimizes wound and surrounding skin trauma, which reduces pain. Safetac layer seals the wound edges and prevents the exudate from leaking out.

  • Faster Healing: Mepilex Border with Safetac technology creates a faster wound healing environment. Traditional adhesives may strip the skin, tear the wound and leak drainage back onto the skin causing delayed wound healing. Safetac layer does not stick in the wound and does not strip the skin.
  • Better Drainage Management: Mepilex Border with Safetac technology absorbs drainage better than other dressings. It allows for a longer wear time, provides an optimal moisture and temperature resulting in undisturbed wound healing.
  • Reduced Pain and Stress: Pain from dressing changes is usually a result of adhesives that damage the wound and surrounding skin. Pain causes stress, and stress delays healing. Mepilex soft silicone foam dressing is intended to be less painful during dressing changes.
  • Ease of use: Mepilex with border is soft, comfortable and easy to use on delicate areas. Safetac layer does not stick to wound on removal, giving less pain to the patient. 
  • No Injury: Mepilex Border Dressing does not damage the newly formed granulation tissue.
  • Sealing Action: Safetac adhesive seals the wound margins, protecting against exudate leakage and maceration. Seals the wound completely and instantly. It provides optimal moist wound healing environment.

How to use Molnlycke Border Dressing?

  • Gently cleanse the wound, dry surrounding skin
  • Choose a size that will allow the dressing to overlap the wound area by at least 2 cm
  • Remove the release film Apply dressing with the adherent side to the wound
  • Do not stretch
  • When used on an extremity, position Mepilex slightly below the center of the wound to avoid leakage caused by gravitation
  • If required, fixate Mepilex with Mepitac tape, a compression bandage, or other secondary fixation product such as Tubifast
  • If additional fixation is required this should only be applied around the margins of the dressing


  • In case of signs of clinical infection, consult a health care professional for adequate infection treatment
  • Do not use Mepilex Border together with oxidizing agents such as hypochlorite solutions or hydrogen peroxide
  • Mepilex Border should be stored in dry conditions below 35°C (95F) and be protected from direct sunlight


  • The presence of clinical infection does not preclude the use of Mepilex Border provided that appropriate antimicrobial therapy is also provided
  • Sloughy wounds dressed with Mepilex Border may initially appear to increase in size due to autolytic debridement promoted by the moist conditions produced beneath the dressing
  • Increase in size is normal and to be expected initially

Frequency of Change:

The interval between changes will normally be determined by the amount of exudate produced by the wound. Mepilex Border Foam Dressing may be left in place for up to 7 days depending on the wound condition, or as indicated by accepted clinical practice. The dressing may be left in place for several days on clean non-infected wounds.
