SILVERCEL™ NON-ADHERENT Hydro-Alginate Antimicrobial Dressing with Silver with EASYLIFT™ Precision Film Technology


  • actimanreading

    SILVERCEL™ NON-ADHERENT Hydro-Alginate Antimicrobial Dressing with Silver is a nonwoven pad composed of alginate, carboxymethylcellulose (CMC) and silver coated nylon fibres, with a non-adherent wound contact layer.

    Efficacy you can trust value you can count on

    • effective & sustained antimicrobial action for the entire wear time1,4,6*
    • more absorbent than leading competitor*
    • up to 20% more cost effective than the leading brand8

    The pain of dressing change easily removed1,2

    EASYLIFT™ Precision Film Technology provides:

    • Easy and pain free removal1,2
    • Effective protection of the newly formed tissue5
    • Strong tensile strength when wet, to ensure intact removal of dressing for minimal residue5

    Antimicrobial action

    In vitro performance demonstrates the silver-coated fibres help protect the wound from bacterial contamination and infection.


    • Effective against a broad spectrum of wound pathogens including MRSA, MRSE and VRE1,4*
    • Sustained release of silver ions for up to 7 days6*

    Absorbency

    • Helps minimise the risk of maceration
    • Optimally spaced perforations allow ‘free flow’ of exudate into the dressing4
    • Helps maintain a moist wound environment beneficial to wound healing2
    • Manages moderate to highly exuding wounds

    Atraumatic, intact removal

    In vitro performance demonstrates lower adherence vs competitor brands6
