AQUACEL® Dressings

Everything you love about foam — and more.

The only silver foam dressing that offers the healing benefits of a Hydrofiber® contact layer, the comfort of foam and the bacteria-killing power of ionic silver.*1

AQUACEL® Ag Foam dressings give you:

A - A waterproof top layer that permits evaporation of excess moisture while protecting against viral/bacterial penetration*2, allowing the patient to shower and bathe

B - A soft, absorbent foam pad to enhance patient comfort and absorb excess fluid

C - A Hydrofiber® layer with ionic silver that gels on contact with wound fluid and helps provide an optimal environment for wound healing

D - A gentle silicone adhesive that provides secure, skin-friendly adhesion, easy removal and demonstrated low potential for dermal irritation or allergic contact sensitization3

The addition of ionic silver provides the ability to kill a broad spectrum of wound-related microbes in the dressing through:

  • Rapid and effective antimicrobial action*1,4-5
  • Controlled release of ionic silver as wound exudate is absorbed into the dressing*1,4-5
  • Sustained antimicrobial activity for up to 14 days*1,4-5

Convatec Hydrofiber® Technology gives AQUACEL® dressings powerful capabilities.
