Mepilex - Border
The design includes a Safetac® interface which seals the wound edges, preventing the exudate to leak onto the surrounding skin, thus minimising the risk for maceration . Safetac interface also minimises damaging the wound or surrounding skin or exposing the patient to additional pain at dressing changes .
Mepilex Border can handle more exudate than other compared silicone foam dressings because of its unique material construction . First the absorbent foam pad absorbs exudate and prevents it from returning to the wound, protecting the periwound skin . Then the nonwoven spreading layer spreads exudate over a wide surface area within the retention layer . As the exudate reaches retention layer with superabsorbents its being effectively managed and retained which reduces the risk of leakage and maceration . Finally the highly breathable yet showerproof backing film enables longer wear time as well as protects the wound by stopping bacteria and viruses .
