Only AQUACEL Ag Foam dressing offers the healing benefits of an AQUACEL™ Ag contact layer, the comfort of foam and the bacteria-killing power of ionic silver.*1  

Waterproof barrier provides:

-      Controlled moisture vapor transmission*
-      Protection against viral/bacterial penetration*2

Soft foam pad absorbs fluid*

Silicone adhesive border adheres to skin, outside of wound bed

AQUACEL™ Ag layer with Hydrofiber™ Technology gels on contact with the wound surface to:
-      Lock in wound exudate, including harmful components*3
-      Maintain a moist environment, helping reduce the pain associated with frequent dressing changes*4-7
-      Prevent lateral spread of fluid, reducing the risk of maceration*8
-      Micro-contour to the wound bed, minimizing dead space where bacteria can grow*9
-      Kill a wide variety of micro-organisms, including certain tested antibiotic-resistant superbugs, with powerful ionic silver*1
