Contains PHMB*, a substance which kills and inhibits the growth of bacteria and yeast within the dressing, and is effective against a broad spectrum of microorganisms (gram+, gram- and yeast) that are frequently associated with the bacterial colonization and infection of wounds.
Key Features and Benefits

Impregnated with PHMB, the foam provides sustained antimicrobial action and helps prevent recolonization of the wound bed.
Excellent absorption rate (31 g/100 cm2/24 hr) helps reduce the number of dressing changes, provides increase wear time (up to 7 days) and reduces the risk of maceration.
Clear perforated film prevents the dressing from adhering to the wound bed.
Ensures the dressing stays in place to prevent accidental removal by shear between clothes and bedding.
Protects both the patients and healthcare professional from cross contamination. Keeps bacteria and other contaminants away from the wound.
