Durafiber Gelling Fibre Wound Care Dressing
The DURAFIBER range is a new generation of high performing gelling fibre dressing designed to meet the many challenges posed by medium and heavily exuding infected and non infected wounds.
Specially designed with innovative fibre technology, DURAFIBER features a unique non-woven fibre blend that is integral to its high performance. This unique blend provides an exclusive combination of benefits that set DURAFIBER dressings apart from conventional gelling fibre dressings.
DURAFIBER Ag is an absorbent, non-woven, silver containing antimicrobial dressing composed of cellulose ethyl sulphonate fibres. The ionic silver in the dressing provides antimicrobial activity against a broad spectrum of common wound pathogens which may help to reduce bacterial bioburden and the risk of infection.
DURAFIBER Ag is designed to rapidly form a clear cool gel on contact with wound fluid. This gel absorbs excess fluid, locks exudate away from the wound, provides a moist environment to support autolytic debridement and conforms intimately to the wound bed. The high integral wet strength of DURAFIBER Ag facilitates easy one-piece removal from moist wound beds and cavity wounds so minimising trauma to the wound and pain to the patient on removal.
