    - Outer layer - High-density polyethylene
    - Inner layers - Highly absorbent rayon or cellulose blend
    - Anti-shear layer - High-density polyethylene
    - Wound contact layer - High-density polyethylene
  • Anti Shear Layer helps reduce shearing thus may help protect fragile granulation tissue
  • One-piece, multi-layer sealed construction eliminates frayed edges, loose threads, and linting
  • Minimizes disruption to new granulation tissue
  • Highly absorbent, it helps reduce the risk of maceration and irritation to the wound and surrounding tissue
  • Wicks away drainage from the wound into the entire dressing, reducing the frequency of dressing changes
  • Non-occlusive, soft and pliable, the dressing is available in a wide range of sizes and shapes to accommodate virtually any wound or body contour.
  • Permeable and non-occlusive, it can be used as a wet or dry dressing on clean or contaminated wounds
