Aquacel Foam Adhesive



Aquacel foam combines a protective top layer, soft absorbent foam pad and gentle silicone adhesive with an Aquacel contact layer. The top layer provides a waterproof barrier against viral and bacterial penetration whilst allowing the patient to shower and bathe. The absorbent foam pad absorbs excess fluid and the gentle adhesive only attaches to the surrounding skin and not to the wound bed.

The Aquacel contact layer gels on contact with exudate and locks it in, including any harmful components. The dressing micro-contours to the wound which minimises dead space where bacteria can grow. The vertical wicking prevents lateral spread of fluid which reduces the risk of maceration.
