  • Hydrofiber™ Technology is a soft, absorbent material that transforms into a gel on contact with wound fluid.
  • The gelling action creates an optimal environment for wound healing.*,1,6,10,11,13

Locks in Exudate and Traps Bacteria*,1-3

Micro-Contours to Wound Bed*,8

Responds to wound fluid levels by forming a cohesive gel*,10-12

  • Helps protect periwound skin and reduce maceration4,5
  • May help to minimize wound and cross-infection during removal6,7
  • Minimizes “dead space” where bacteria can grow8
  • Maintains moisture balance in the wound bed9
  • Forms a cohesive gel when in contact with exudates
  • Provides rapid and sustained antimicrobial activity on demand*,10-12 (dressings with ionic silver)
