Benefits of Silicate
These silicone dressings are highly conformable and effectively adhere to just about anywhere on the body. The sturdy border helps to keep infection in, while the highly absorbent center lifts the infection away from the wound to excel the healing process. These revolutionary silicone wound dressings can stay in place for up to 7 days, even with excessive exudation and bleeding.
Our Silicate Silicone Foam Dressing Borders work to minimizes epidermal stripping and protects the periwound to greatly reduce the risk of damaging tissue on patients that have gentle skin.
Absorbancy is an extremely important characteristic when selecting the best wound dressing. For those suffering from leg ulcers or diabetic tissue necrosis, high-absorbency pads that have several layers of absorptive materials are imperative to keeping the wound moist but also not sitting in its own fluid. When excessive exudate is present, you need a wound dressing that will keep excess fluids from further infecting surrounding healthy tissue.
Our wound care products all promote healing by affording the affected area a moist and germ free environment to hasten the healing process. The myth that allowing the infected area to 'dry out' so it will heal faster, simply isn't true. For your wound to heal with little scarring, you need to keep your skin moderately moisturized while also remembering to clean the area accordingly.
